Mine Explosion

Here’s the latest tweet from retired Massey Energy President Don Blankenship:

In honor of UBB victims and the 120 miner fatalities since I retired a documentary will be out next week on what really happened at UBB.

As if the upcoming 4th anniversary of the mine disaster wasn’t going to be hard enough on the families of those 29 miners who died on April 5, 2010, now this …

We’ve been through all of this before about Blankenship’s theories on how the disaster happened (see here, here and here). The question is, now that Blankenship has declared that Hoppy Kercheval isn’t on coal’s side, who among our state media will promote those theories all over again like they are news?
