Headlines on Nuke Disaster & JPQuake Bad Reporting Wall of Shame

Please check the JPQuake Bad Reporting Wall of Shame for some excellent examples of over-the-top sensationalist reporting on the nuclear accident in Japan.

Here are some more headlines that we'd like to see:

"Millions of Japanese Suffer Deadly Radiation Poisoning in German Newspaper!" 

"Entire Coastline of Northern Japan now Surrounded by Water!"

"Smoke Billowing from Factories in Japan a Thousand Times 

"Radiators Active in New Toyota Factory!"

"Western media in race against time; hysterical nuclear bullshit nearing critical meltdown, yet millions are still uncontaminated!"

And, finally;

"Fukushima Nuclear Reporters Still Valiantly Holding on in Fight to Write About Nuclear Holocaust!"

If you have any great headlines, please add them into "comments"

“Everyone in the world is dead!!! - On-The-Spot-News- at nine…”

And then the actual report is nothing like the sensationalist nonsense that got the mindless masses to tune in…
