5. To answer your original question....
they would only cover up/lie about radiation information every single chance they get. The only times a radiation "problem" is brought to light is if the problem is so big that they can not cover it up and people actually notice there is something wrong. Then they say that, "Yes, there is a problem but no one should worry. There will be only a small release and it is perfectly safe."

The govt has been minimizing the effects of radiation and nuclear power from the very beginning. The growing number of deaths does not seem to mean anything to them.
