Radiation Released from Nuclear Reactor near Chicago, Media Oblivious

I just got home and checked Energy News for the latest on the radioactive nightmare in Japan.  Instead, I saw article after article about a smoking transformer and the release of radiation at an aging nuclear plant in Illinois.

Nuke Plant Spokeswoman: “Smoke was seen coming from an auxiliary transformer but the fire department found no fire” -Reuters

NRC: “Not a huge concern” at nuke plant outside Chicago — Employees reported seeing smoke coming from transformer after outage, no fire found

Reporters at Byron Press Conference: A lot of people are calling us about a loud noise — Was a special emergency response team on scene?

Fireman Eyewitness: “It looked like a lot of smoke coming from containment building” at Byron nuclear plant — Had to be told it was steam — Original call said a building at Byron nuclear plant was filling up with smoke 

Reporter Appears Suspicious: Isn’t it unusual for fire dept. to be called to Byron nuclear plant for a release of steam? 

I checked on Google News and this is what I found on the front page:

Not the sort of thing that the MSM would chase up.   Too close to home.
