Coal Questions

People are wondering why Barack's quotes on coal, potentially very damaging in key industrial "bitter" states, are just becoming known when Barack did the interview with the SF Chronicle back in January. The answer is, the quote about bankrupting coal companies wasn't included in the news story.
Imagine if John McCain had whispered somewhere that he was willing to bankrupt a major industry? Would this declaration not immediately be front page news? Well, Barack Obama actually flat out told the San Francisco Chronicle (SF Gate) that he was willing to see the coal industry go bankrupt in a January 17, 2008 interview. The result? Nothing. This audio interview has been hidden from the public...until now.

So, when the liberal Chronicle wrote the story, they left out the big news. Classic.
