Recent editorials from West Virginia newspapers:
U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is demanding his name and interview be removed from a documentary funded by former Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship. The documentary "Upper Big Branch - Never Again" released Monday and its credits clearly state it is "a film by Don Blankenship." The film's opening disclaimer, however, says people's participation in the documentary via interviews "is not in association or affiliation with Don Blankenship." In the letter sent to Adriot Films Tuesday, Manchin states, "Your fraudulent behavior in securing the interview and your misrepresentation of my interview are actionable offenses." He goes on to state the company's failure to indicate the film was funded by Blankenship was a "gross misrepresentation of the true purpose of your film." The explosion on April 5, 2010, killed 29 miners.

Nothing clarifies the mind, with apologies to Dr. Johnson, quite like a fight for survival. Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat, arrived at his moment of enlightenment contemplating the likelihood of West Virginia voters returning to the Senate someone who voted to preserve Obamacare. He told a home-state paper, the Beckley Register-Herald, the other day that he would "vote tomorrow" to repeal the law. A day later, presumably after being taken to the woodshed by Harry Reid, Mr. Manchin returned to a state of confusion with a retraction. "I have never supported repealing [Obamacare]," he said.
U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin wants the West Virginia facility that caused a chemical spill torn to the ground.

"I'm hoping history will still be around because we have the energy we need," he said.
