Hanford Nuclear Waste Site

The last news about the collapse was 4 days ago! Just like Fukushima, there seems to be a news blackout regarding this  event. My question is,…is this event not news worthy,…or is it “too” news worthy, and places government in a bad light? Nuclear waste is a “hot” topic, one that the powers that be, do not like to see in the news unless it is placing them in a good light. I personally had not even heard of this facility before. I wonder how many other people are as ignorant of its existence as i was?
