Yes. Presents latest developments as best the journalist can discern from limited sources. Also interesting (and perhaps reflecting the industries controllingl influence over a government trying to triage a corporate catastrophe) is a link below the story "Int'l Commission Recommends Japan Temporarily Increase Radiation Limits for the Public. Perhaps One needs to sit in a corner and ponder that "solution/"...or not. Don't worry, be happy, we're raising your limits, Ergo: qualifying the PR statements years from now that few member of the public were exposed to radiation that exceeded the standards set by the government.

Everyone is very concerned about Japan and the Nuclear problems that are going on right now, and this article lets people know exactly what's happening. It gives all of the facts about the plants and what they are doing to try and solve the problem and also tells you about the people involved in the situation.

I think that this is good journalism because it is very relevant and important for newspapers in Japan to keep their residents updated about the situation with the nuclear power plant. This article was well-written and has quotes from the Prime Minister, Tokyo Electric Power Co., and someone from the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. This article does not try to hide the fact that the radiation coming from the power plant is dangerous, and advises Japanese residents to evacuate the area if they are within 20-30 Km. I think this is good journalism because it is informative, truthful, supported with good quotes, and it is well written.
