Title Verification of the News Coverage of the Fukushima Nuclear accident
Abstract On March 11 the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, along with the great earthquake and tsunami struck the people of Japan and this historic accident continues to draw both national and international attention. Not only has the accident itself drawn much criticism, but its coverage by the mass media has also drawn attention, although there still has not been outstanding academic research presented in the area. With this in mind, we would like to invite Professor Jun Ogura, who worked as a reporter for Mainichi Newspaper and Kyodo News before becoming a researcher and professor in Journalism, to discuss his current research on the coverage of the 1st Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident.
