Stories biased, uninformed

I have been a radiation safety professional for more than 20 years and have never heard the terms "radiation outbreak" or "nuclear discards" before reading the verbiage contained in three articles in the Deseret News on Jan. 29.

The articles were written with reference to the Private Fuel Storage application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a license to build and operate a monitored retrievable storage facility on the Goshute reservation. Reporting that uses words singularly or in combinations that have no meaning is not instructive or informative to anyone.The two articles by Karl Cates were more appropriate for a biased, uninformed editorial than news stories giving details of who, what, where and when.
