Clips From Last Night: Red Cross efforts in Japan, future of nuclear power in U.S.

On last night's "Piers Morgan Tonight", Piers Morgan interviewed Red Cross CEO Gail McGovern about the relief efforts in Japan. "Each disaster is different, and having seen the aftermath of earthquakes personally I can tell you its difficult to measure which is worse," said McGovern. As for where your donations go, McGovern said 91 cents of every dollar go to the relief effort. "Food, shelter, medical supplies – those are the top priorities," she said.

Piers also interviewed former Governor Bill Richardson, who talked about nuclear power. Here was his take:

Richardson told Piers "I do think nuclear power is important" but "it has to be done carefully":

    When will the dialog change from "containment" to "evacuation"?
    Isn't it time to think about evacuating the people in the radiation danger zone?

    Rep Ed Markey whom was just on CNN yapping about the nuclear changes, BLAH BLAH BLAH. He has only been in the Energy Committee since 1976. These politicians have not had near enough time to address any of this. When is America going to wake up and realize EVERYONE in Washington, DC and every other form of our state and local governments are asleep at the wheel and have been. I hate reactionary policy and procedures. What happened to Proactive? Natural Gas commercials abound, have we forgot the aging infrastructure we have in place regarding gas transmission lines? Every form has its merits and pitfalls. Problem is when you do absolutely NOTHING in office, and nobody is making you do anything, nor measuring your performance, this kind of leadership continues. The entire system in place regarding our leadership in this country is BROKE. Has been, and is the only "machine" in the whole world that parts fall off, or break, or wear out, and guess what? It defies the laws of physics and continues to run. Broke. Government shut down? Please. Wake up America. Start demanding answers to these leaders. Make them do their jobs continuously not spur of the moment reactionary get as much press as you can. Do what we do in private industry, if they don't perform, FIRE them. Not four years from now or until term ends, NOW, and replace them immediately. They have not got a clue what is going on in the real world, and when you have to have assistants and advisors tell you what is going on in a Clifnote format, there is a problem. This country needs an enema.

    Why is Piers Morgan and CNN showing the same video seveeral days in a row while labeling it "this just in"? Same video has been on for 3 days.... water down a street, red awning over store front, cars floating. Today he announced that the driver was saved. Surely they have enough material to show/tell us something new and not pretend previous video is suddenly "just in" What a farce.

    Some networks are saying today's fire in rod storage has been determined to be an oil fire in lubricating materials but Anderson Cooper is still trumpeting the earlier reports while there apparently are more updated facts available.

    it just bothers me that the government and the company that operates these ticking time bombs just come in and build these things like their building a shopping center or something in heavely populated areas, they lied to all of us in 1979 about what was really happening and now it seems like allot of people around 3 mile island are dying of cancer, we do have rivers in the U.S. so how about more hydro plants (water powered turbines) that at least won't kill people and the environment from such a disaster. my heart goes out to all the people in harms way

    I find it disgusting they way politicians will take any opportunity, even a terrible tradgedy and turn it into a soap box for their own politically motivated mudslinging. Put your egos away this is not the time.

      I want my children to have their own eohatirnslip with the Lord and it not be just the faith of their parents. They also need to be aware of all the traps of the world whether it be a secular worldview, mismanagement of finances, the image and lifestyle society tells them they need, etc. They need to find Hope and Peace in a world that doesn't provide it.

    It is with regret that I find myself being critical of Piers Morgan as he is obviously a very intelligent person, however, his interview techniques are sadly lacking, ie: constantly interrupting his guests and presenting a confrontative approach which tends to put people on the defensive to the point they feel uncomfortable and subsequently they start shutting down as the interview continues time wise. With proper coaching perhaps Piers could become the kind of interviewer that will match his level of intelligence. Trusting this information is of value. Respectfully, Bob Cruikshank
