Just a wild guess, but I suspect it's the U.N.
Yup. About the IAEA. The IAEA is an organization whose mission is "to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies," in its Member States, including countries like Japan and France that have far more extensive nuclear energy programs than the US.

It's not a media outlet, and its scale isn't based on anti-nuclear panic or long-distance rumor mongering. IAEA scientists from a variety of disciplines assess the impact of various incidents. The Three Mile Island number was assessed 15 or so years after the accident. It's the opposite of some knee-jerk media freakout.
