Fox News Discovers Nuclear Reactor In Japanese Disco
Fox News displays map of Japan’s nuclear power plants, gets that wrong too:
One name seems out of place on the graphic — that of “Shibuyaeggman.”
It doesn’t show up on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s list of Japanese nuclear power stations, and this map of Japanese nuclear installations from the Department of Energy’s International Nuclear Safety Center doesn’t have any listing for “Shibuyaeggman,” and doesn’t show a nuclear power plant anywhere near the location on the Fox News map. So I did a little research.
A quick Googling of “shibuyaeggman” turned up no meaningful results. A Nexis search was also fruitless. However, further inquiries revealed that Eggman is the name of a dance club in a trendy neighborhood of Tokyo called… Shibuya. And, it just so happens, the Fox graphic appears to place the alleged reactor in Tokyo. Here’s a photo of Eggman — as you can see, it’s right below The @ Super Suits Store. And Johnny Hi-Fi played there in 2006.
Sounds like a fun place. But it doesn’t sound like a nuclear power plant.
