Bloomberg had the money interview with Don Blankenship:
“Whatever happened at UBB is something that needs to be figured out, but it’s not the result of my management style,” Blankenship said in a telephone interview. “I’ve been running Massey effectively for 22 years. I know the properties, the challenges, the opportunities better than anyone else could possibly know them.”
“Anyone that’s doing this job effectively in this area will have a certain element of society that’s opposed to them,” Blankenship told Bloomberg.
Increasingly, one such element of society is Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), who made clear today that his definition of “doing this job effectively” includes doing whatever it takes to keep miners safe on the job.
