Worst Media Ever

Heads should roll at the corporate media organizations. All that bullshit reporting about "a miracle." This was a bad story from the start -- and somehow, our inept media made it worse for the grieving families.

I so wanted to post something about this last night, but somehow I felt that this might turn out to be more media cheerleading instead of reporting. I wish I'd been wrong.

"In a stunning and heartbreaking reversal, mining officials told family members early Wednesday that 11 of the 12 trapped coal miners initially thought to have survived a mine explosion had died."

Joy turns to grief: just one survivor at Virginia mine
