Nuclear Risks

Unmanned guard booths, unlocked doors and sleepy guards are all that stand between terrorists and small nuclear reactors on 25 college campuses around the country, ABC News reporters and producers found. Led by correspondent Brian Ross, the investigative team for "Loose Nukes" found that none of these reactors has metal detectors and, in some cases, tour groups are allowed easy access to control rooms and reactor pools that hold radioactive waste. The report has prompted an investigation by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Full disclosure: two of the researchers on this project, Michael Anderson and Karson Yiu, were students at the Medill School of Journalism where I teach.

I'm sorry, but there are plenty of things wrong with this story. Just follow the links:




There's just too much information omitted, and other facts that should have been disclosed before the story aired.

Why don't you take the time to make an argument instead of posting a bunch of links? Pretty lame.
