The Forgotten Dead
When that coal mining operation in West Virginia resulted in all those workers being killed, we almost had a day a morning in this country. But, when eleven workers on the BP rig, all Americans, died, not even a penny's worth of newsprint was spared to tell us their names. Apparently, 11 lives being lost in trying to help this country become oil independent is just expected and not really a tragedy. This fact just underscores the mainstream media's left-wing ECO-attitude towards the oil industry; even though coal is much dirtier than oil.
