The New York Times Covers for Nuclear Power Industry

The New York Times, that bastion of the so-called liberal media doesn’t want Americans to know that the Japanese overwhelmingly reject restarting some of their nuclear power plants in lieu of what happened last year at the Fukushima power plant after the huge earth quake there in March:

Japan Public Still Divided as 2 Reactors to Be Opened

Brushing aside widespread public opposition to avoid feared electric power shortages, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda ordered the reactivation of two nuclear reactors at a plant in western Japan on Saturday, making it the nation’s first plant to go back online since the crisis last year in Fukushima.

[...]

According to polls, two-thirds of Japanese express deep concern about the safety of nuclear plants after last year’s accident, which contaminated food with radiation and shattered the myth of Japan’s infallible nuclear technology. The day before Mr. Noda gave the order, his government was visited by an antinuclear group led by the Nobel laureate Kenzaburo Oe, which presented what it said were the signatures of 7.5 million people calling for the abolition of nuclear power.

So, the title of the article says the Japanese are “still divided” but in the body we learn there is “widespread public opposition” and “two-thirds of Japanese express deep concern about the safety of nuclear plants.”

That doesn’t sound “divided” to me.
