I was watching one of the news channels yesterday when they were asking the head guy (?) about what caused the problem and the reporters were asking stupid questions like, "how did this happen". I'm thinking, give 'em a fucking break jackasses; first they'll make an effort to save the workers, then they'll determine the cause of the accident. Then everyone wants to know "WHY!?", BECAUSE SOMEONE OR SOMETHING FUCKED UP, IT HAPPENS.
God damn the media is so fucking stupid. Do you even have to get a college degree to be a news writer?
Miners are trapped in a fucking mine, it's not a national disaster, it's a a workplace incident. I swear if someone drops something heavy on their foot while they're stocking the shelves at wal-mart the news media's all over it.
