They are reporting that they guy that they have that is the survivor (Randall McCoy) has NO traces of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

This is why I HATE the media.. the race to get there first gets the stories WRONG!

The media screw up???? No way...

Every network and station is in a rush to scoop everyone else.

2000 election is a perfect example of that.

Certainly quite a strange turn of events.

Press conference coming up.

What a nightmare...
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 10:58:51 PM EDT
FNC just reported that only 1 is alive, too.

Prayers to the family members.

OK now its coming in that the CEO first reported to the media that "one was found dead then they located 12 alive"

so the media reported that.

Now the CEO says "whoops, I messed up..."

Regardless of who is to balme for fucked up reporting.... its a fucked up situation all around.

Did they get their facts from the New Orleans death toll folks?

Jesus, be sure before you report.

Sad, very sad.

According to FNC, the families were told* that 12 of the miners were alive...then later, told that 12 are dead.

*by authorities

Guy talking on press conference is Ben Hatfield, Pres. of the coal company.

This guy asking questions is inferring that the rescue team was using cell phones to talk to the command center.

paraphrase of the question ' I know how hard cell phones are use ABOVE ground, I can't imagine underground'
