CNN - use "Under Control" six times to describe meltdown situation - whatever!!
[link to edition.cnn.com]

"The situation is under control," a prime minister's office spokesman says.

"Nobody builds better power plants than Japan, because they are the most seismically active country on earth. They are built to withstand this very earthquake," he said.

"I am absolutely, 100% confident that they will be able to solve the existing problem of a meltdown, if it is occurring, that they will be able to totally eliminate the escape of any radiation," he said.

The problems at the Daiichi plant began Friday, when the 8.9-magnitude quake that struck offshore forced the automatic shutdown of the plant's nuclear reactors and knocked out the main cooling system, according to the country's nuclear agency.

A tsunami resulting from the quake then washed over the site, knocking out backup generators.

The reactors at the Daiichi plant are boiling-water reactors. The reactor affected by Saturday's explosion is Fukushima Daiichi 1. It was connected to the grid in November 1970, making it about 40 years old.
