An Incredible Piece of Journalism

2013 Epiphany Countdown: #6

This historic essay published in the New Yorker from August 1946 recounts the story of six survivors (if we can use such a word) of the atomic blast at Hiroshima, 8:15 am August 6, 1945. This is an incredible piece of journalism, offering much perspective on nuclear power, especially if it is considered alongside the more recent nuclear meltdown at Fukushima – which is the subject of the documentary, Reaktor, featured in the video above.

An incredibly tiny piece of journalism would be a more appropriate title. Try a little harder. Dig deeper. I know this organization can do it.

Did he really say "Nuuk-ular" three times? I appreciate his interest in the subject, but as a journalist, he should also care about "getting it right". A good place to start would be to say "nuclear".

Or maybe we should change the word. So many get it wrong, starting with Dwight Eisenhower.
