Ranking the agenda

The Japan earthquake and tsunami has provided plenty of opportunity for those who need to take advantage of a crisis, especially with the nuclear power component. It has become so evident that there is now a Journalist Wall of Shame website to catalog the hyperbole and FUD mongering. Besides the notes about the spam and other harassment and the links for those irritated at the phenomena, there is a Severity of Offense scores that provides an interesting measurement reference for the phenomena.

So, if you need to dwell in fear and apocalypse, then look for the stories rated highly. Otherwise, witness and learn.
