The purpose of this radio ad is to clarify that I was never charged with having caused the mine explosion.
The basis of the prosecution charge against me was a single sentence in a letter that I did not write. A letter that the Massey Investor Relations and Public Relations Departments felt should be sent post the Upper Big Branch (UBB) explosion.
The letter corrected the media's false reports, which - among other things - alleged numerous violations at UBB. Multiple internal and external attorneys reviewed the letter before I signed it.
