Anyone watch “The Event” Monday night on NBC? Part of the show’s storyline had to do with the theft of fuel rods from a Southern California nuclear plant. The rods were stolen by aliens. In 1986, the same aliens unsuccessfully attempted to steal fuel rods from a reactor in the Ukraine which ended up causing the Chernobyl “accident.”
While the theft was occurring, the president was meeting with the Japanese prime minister!
You can’t make this up!
NBC is bring criticized for airing the show as events in Japan were developing.
