Says coldwarrior:

For actual earthquake reporting, and to bypass the western media spin on the reactor story (just in case some of yinz don’t have the link):

They stream the news and news conferences with instant English translation.

No spin, just news and interviews with people that are actually qualified to answer reactor questions.

Depending on your browser settings, you may need to authorize it to run an ActiveX process in order to see and hear the streaming video.

While I was listening to the streaming video, the announcer suggested that those wishing to donate search for the Japanese Red Cross website. Here it is:
