Chernobyl: A Million Casualties
A million people have died so far as a result of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant accident, explains Janette Sherman, M.D., toxicologist and contributing editor of the book Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment. Published by the New York Academy of Sciences, the book, authored by Dr. Alexey Yablokov, Dr. Vassily Nesterenko and Dr. Alexey Nesterenko, examined medical records now available–which expose as a lie the claim of the International Atomic Energy Commission that perhaps 4,000 people may die as a result of Chernobyl.

Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting or FAIR is the leading media watch group in the United States. Janine Jackson, program director of FAIR, discusses how corporate ownership impacts on media, stories that are neglected and under-reported — including the consequences of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster, the government’s “official agenda” and how media follow “Washington’s official line,” telecom policy and diversity in media. She outlines the activities of FAIR among them its magazine Extra! and radio program CounterSpin — and how people can support FAIR.
