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"
