* Coal ash industry fakes names, Rachel Maddow and other news organization report on it
July 8, 2012 by Bill Gupton, Group Chair
Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) featured a coal ash story on her program last night: the story is entitled, Steamed Bun, Older Sister - highlighting how the coal ash industry has attempted to create the illusion of a grassroots effort supporting their position for not regulating coal ash as a hazardous waste. Citizens for Recycling First created an on line petition that included hundreds of fake Chinese names – these fake names were exposed by a report done by the Environmental Integrity Project (EIP).
