Thanks to Frank Gallagher blogging at FireDogLake for providing us the quote of the day courtesy of WYMT-TV in eastern Kentucky. In “US Chamber of Commerce goes astroturfing to sink miner safety bill,” he writes about the front-group sponsored by the Chamber and other business groups to oppose legislation to improve federal worker safety laws. (I blogged yesterday about the goup.) Gallagher writes:
WYMT-TV, out of Kentucky…covered the proceedings and featured Mr. Snare in their story, identifying him as not as a representative of the Coalition For Workplace Safety, but instead as a spokesman for the Coalition Against Workplace Safety.
…Mr. Snare may well have been disappointed with the attribution, but the fact is, WYMT nailed it. Mr. Snare’s organization most definitely stands against increased workplace safety, not for it, no matter what they call themselves.
Thanks Frank, I needed a good laugh out loud today.
