MSNBC: Wall-to-wall coverage of Charlie Sheen's meltdown, silent on nuclear meltdown --GE: 'We Bring Good Censorship To Life.' By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 12 Mar 2011 Earlier this week, MSNBC spent *hours* covering Lindsay Lohan's court appearance -- including, of course, her courtroom attire -- for an allegedly stolen necklace. But MSNBC has, to this point, censored entirely the nuclear catastrophe in Japan. Hours upon hours of air-time were devoted to Charlie Sheen's 'meltdown,' but MSNBC chose to air its 'Lockup' series on Friday evening/Saturday morning, sans interruption. MSNBC failed to even cut in with a news alert of the explosion -- and possible meltdown -- of Japan's quake-hit Fukushima No.1 nuclear Plant.
