Apparently on December 31st. I have no “inner” acknowledgement of it at this time, but felt urgent enough to post it nonetheless…
update – was sent this:
What’s the deal with the EU Times? I was expecting a Wikipedia article on them but was disappointed that there isn’t one. EUT poses as a legit news site, but picking an article at random reveals they are pretty far from mainstream, example: ‘Russia Says IMF Chief Jailed for Discovering All US Gold is Gone’. (tried to link, seems EUT is blacklisted, so my hunch so far is good…) Is there someplace where I can read an objective appraisal of this “paper” — organization history, backers, slant, etc?

- I’m not surprised that site is blacklisted, it’s a terrible site. Looks like its only purpose is to make the site owner ad revenue from people clicking on the multiple ads and popups. The “news stories” are just farmed from elsewhere. There are plenty of credible news websites such as BBC News. —Viennese Waltz 08:00, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
- The above story appears to originate from . While I won’t link for WP:BLP reasons, a simple search reveals stuff suggesting the person behind that site isn’t even genuine but making up stuff for money (or as a CIA disinformation agent) and their alleged background as a Russian academic or something is false, it’s just a pseudonym for an American.

While Fukushima remains a serious issue, this particular posting may well be erroneous.
