The Dirty Work of a Coal Baron Exposed

Five years after a West Virginia coal mine explosion killed 29 miners, a federal jury has convicted Donald Blankenship, a powerful Appalachian coal baron, of criminal conspiracy to violate mine safety standards through his profit-obsessed mismanagement.

The guilty verdict last Thursday was on just one of three charges, a misdemeanor. But it presented the rare spectacle of a ranking member of Big Coal being tried and convicted of putting miners at lethal risk by circumventing safety requirements.

Prosecutors showed how Mr. Blankenship, when he was chief executive of the Massey Energy Company, allowed a relentless emphasis on productivity — demanding reports every 30 minutes and on weekends — to outweigh his responsibilities for miners’ safety.
