I’m starting to think that Fox News’ primary function isn’t catapulting conservative propaganda, but Will Rogers-esque comedy:
One name seems out of place on the graphic [of Japan’s nuclear power plants] — 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 what is “Shibuyaeggman”? Let’s find out:
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.
Fox News is ‘O’Keefing’ itself.
