Palin accused Obama of trying to bankrupt the coal industry because of the following statement:
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them, because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.Obama went on to sayÂ "if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it."
In fact audio and video of the complete interview have been available on the Chronicle web site since the day of the interview.Â You can watch the video here.Â If you prefer you can listen to the audio here.Â The first comments on the interview were posted on January 17.Â
The Chronicle ran an editorial today about Palin's charges. Â In response to Palin's statement that "You gotta listen to the tape," the Chronicle says "On that point, we agree."
The Frog believes that Palin had no knowledge of the interview beyond what staffers gave her.Â The Chronicle wasn't on the extensive list of print media on which Palin relies for information.Â Palin should use her staff for target practice or at least flog them.
