Here's a snippet of the article:
People associated with Massey Energy, along with its political action committee, donated more than $307,000 to federal candidates since the 1990 election cycle, according to an analysis from the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. The center found that 91% of that money went to Republicans.Why is CNN making this political in the first place? Why else would they unless they had some sort of agenda--which is clear if you simply look at all the political reporting they have done in the last week. If CNN wanted to give out any hint of fairness, it would have also reported on the political contributions of Bernie Madoff.
In addition, the company's CEO, Don Blankenship, has personally donated more than $60,000 since 2000 - all of it to GOP candidates and causes.
Let us make note that this is certainly a tragedy, and our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.
