Remember the new reality show Coal, which debuted March 30 on Spike TV? It has already had a real-world effect. Officials at the Mine Safety and Health Administration apparently were part of the viewing audience, and saw some things they didn't like. They've cited Cobalt Coal, owner of the mine featured in the show, for safety violations. Cobalt's chief exec is looking on the bright side. The show can "educate miners nationwide about the right and wrong way to do things." Owners and viewers might learn also.
