April 2011Edit

She translates for TEPCO spokesman Daisuke Tanaka when he is interviewed by Sloan Sabbith on Atlantic Cable News regarding the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster. In Sloan's pre-interview Daisuke, was frank about the likelihood of the disaster rating increasing, warranting evacuation. However, he spoke to her off the record because they are old friends. During the interview Sloan is disappointed with Daisuke for sticking to the company line, and more so with the translator, who Sloan felt was misrepresenting her words. Despite warnings from Don Keefer, Sloan announces the information she had obtained off the record live on air. Daisuke is publicly embarrassed but Sloan later takes responsibility, saying she herself mistranslated what he said. ("Bullies")
