Buckley Report analyzes recent ‘coal ash’ ad blaming Gov. McCrory

By now, you’re probably familiar with the coal ash spill into the Dan River.

That has been news since it happened last month. What is not news is that this was a disaster waiting to happen.

That appears to be the premise of an advocacy ad run by the environmental group, the Natural Resources Defense Council, which is based in Washington, D.C.

What’s different about this ad though is that it appears to put most – if not all – of the blame on North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory.

This edition of the Buckley Report looks into the ad’s claims to see if they are accurate and whether the NRDC is playing the “blame game” fairly.
