Has there been enough media coverage of the aftermath of Japan's earthquake and tsunami?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nick Gonzales

"I think it's good that attention has been continually drawn to it. But not enough attention has been really given to the conditions people are still in and how much time it's going (to take) to recover from not just the nuclear disaster but the actual tsunami."

Becca Van De Vanter, Mountain View

"There hasn't been much coverage about the reconstruction or the challenges faced by people who were affected by this."

Pankaj Mathur, Dublin

"I think there is definitely a lot more coverage of the disaster in Canada than here. But I have noticed that specifically in Mountain View there are a lot of businesses that seem to be doing some activism, where a portion of what you spend at a restaurant might go toward Japan relief.

Anna Flagg, San Jose

"I think there has been enough coverage of the human tragedy. I would have liked to see more coverage about implications of use of nuclear power and more discussion about the safety of nuclear energy. I would have liked to see a little more focus on it as helping us form policy decisions."

Bill Hackenberger, Los Altos

"Hopefully they do more, so I know what is going on."

Daniel Kaminski, San Jose
