BBC ongoing video and commentary coverage. Constant live coverage, including live reporting from Japan. I suggest you leave this live video running. As usual, UK has better coverage. If you go nowhere else today, all you need is at this link! They are interacting directly with Japanese TV and reporters in the field. UK blows the lazy USA media away in news coverage.
Update: Obama interrupted his workout and “issued a statement”. While the rest of the world’s leaders are on TV offering their condolences, our President can’t do it if he can’t text it. He probably waited till somebody wrote the statement. No sense of straining himself. We see his face on TV constantly with crap, but he can’t make it today.
Further Update: The President is “planning” a press conference. Just as soon as somebody writes down what he should say and loads it into TOTUS. Please name me one president in your lifetime who wasn’t among the first to IMPROMPTU interrupt TV stations to personally offer condolences in a situation like this. Not this guy. He has to Plan a Press Conference. He’s going to pretty much be the last world leader to show up.
