Bob Murray, Who Sued John Oliver For Mocking His Support Of Trump's Plan To Bring Back Coal Jobs... Files For Bankruptcy

from the eat-shit-bob dept

Remember Bob Murray? If you don't, then I highly recommend you go back and watch this 2017 episode of John Oliver's show in which he calls out Bob Murray, as a Trump-supporting coal boss, who pretends to be all about "protecting workers," and who insists that the election of Donald Trump will help save coal miner jobs.

Murray then, famously, sued John Oliver and HBO in what was obviously a totally ridiculous SLAPP suit. He even tried to get a gag order on Oliver and HBO, to stop him from even talking about the lawsuit. The lawsuit did not go well for Bob Murray, though Murray took the somewhat amazing step of directly sending the judge a whiny letter about how people are being mean to him. The judge was not happy (parties in a case are certainly not supposed to be reaching out to the judges in their case directly).

But at least Murray had the Trump administration and all those coal jobs he was going to bring back to save the coal industry, right? Oh, about that. Murray Energy has just declared bankruptcy and is being handed over to investors who are loaning it money to keep the business going.

Robert E. Murray, the U.S. coal baron who pressed the Trump administration to help save America’s struggling miners, placed his company into bankruptcy as demand for the fossil fuel continues to weaken.

Murray Energy Holdings Co. filed for Chapter 11 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Columbus, Ohio, to restructure more than $2.7 billion of debt. The miner -- the largest privately owned U.S. coal company -- reached a restructuring support agreement with lenders who hold more than 60% of a $1.7 billion loan, the company said in a statement. The deal provides a new $350 million loan to keep operations going during the reorganization.

Of course, this shows yet another way in which Oliver's story about coal jobs was largely true: in that he noted that the decline in coal jobs in the US was a long, ongoing process, having little to do with any particular presidential administration, but the natural end result of a shift in energy sources, combined with new mining techniques and efficiencies.

Perhaps rather than suing his critics (he sued a number of other news organizations as well) and running fundraisers for Trump or appearing on TV as a Trump supporter, Murray should have been focused on actually helping his company and its employees adapt for the future?

        Yeah, it’s a strategy to keep yourself from drowning when your income doesn’t come close to paying off costs and existing debt. It’s a strategy you take when you’re failing so hard you need to reset everything.

          Re: Re: Re:

          In a way, he's technically not wrong. Perfect 10 tried time and time again to harass Google and USENET and small news sites for money, to the point where it just pissed off the judges. After Perfect 10 got slammed with sanctions, the company promptly refused to pay the fines - instead transferring all their assets to the owner, Norman Zada, and filed for bankruptcy, arguing that they didn't need to pay.

          So in a sense, Perfect did win - in the same sense that having a heart transplant is a great way to avoid future heart attacks.

          out_of_the_blue (along with his fuckbuddy antidirt) also spent the last few years crowing about how the Perfect 10 cases were "setting great precedents for copyright enforcement"... so it's understandable why filing for bankruptcy counts as a win.

          blue boy probably thought Prenda filing for bankruptcy was a win too!

        Re: Re:

        As was stated, the full explanation of Stone's post is in the video but the premise is this.

        Bob was in trouble and tried to cover it up with some money he gave to employees with checks. One employee wrote on the check "Eat Sh** Bob" and returned the check without cashing it because he didn't want to let Bob off the hook so easily.

        So the commenter Stone just reiterated what that employee and John Oliver both said back to Bob for his crummy behavior.

              Well, sure, you’re not guaranteed an income, but that’s an entirely separate question from earning or deserving an income.

              I’m just saying that Masnick has done work that justifies his earning an income. I’m specifically disputing this bit:

              NOR has Masnick EVER had to WORK for what he's gottten, he's a privileged little idiot.

              (sic)

              I’m saying that he’s doing work to earn his income. I’m not saying that he’s guaranteed an income. I’m just saying he’s worked for any money he’s gotten.

    Ah sweet schadenfruede...

    The only regret I have reading this is that the company going under is likely to leave a lot of workers(you know, the people he claimed he was protecting with the legal threats/lawsuits?) in a hard place as a number of them suddenly find out that coal isn't coming back as promised and if they want to keep a paycheck they're going to need to find another job.

    As for Murray himself, while I imagine he's got enough squirreled away that this won't hit him too hard other than cutting out a source of income I can't help but hope that he ends up sharing at least a portion of the suffering his workers will be facing, and if nothing else having yet another Oliver claim proven right has got to really annoy him.

      Not really. Murray is JUST the type who upon discovering that he might be in hot water with the law for operating an unsafe mine would IMMEDIATELY look to finagle a few laws exculpating him onto the tablets.

    Did his coal company file for bankruptcy or did he file for bankruptcy?

    There is a huge difference between "I'm a billionaire by the company I own is more profitable if I restructure its debts through bankruptcy" (ie Trump bankruptcies) and a "I am personally out of money" bankruptcy.

    Yep, a massive corporate tax cut, deregulation, & lots of rah-rah & still Bob's company goes bankrupt. What happened to that windfall? I've got no idea what my employer did with it. Several business units closed, the products they made switched from make to buy (overseas of course), continued headcount reductions globally... & after staying fairly flat since 2010, huge increase in health insurance coverage.

    But hot damn our CEO pocketed millions & our stock price is at a record high! Anyone could be walked out at any moment though so better not complain or ask for a raise. All I know is I will continue to try to vote in my best interest.

    What a butt sucking parasite scumbag you are ... mike. To revel in the ruination of ANYONE, is the absolute definition of petty, self-absorbed, grade school childishness.
    I usually don't resort to name calling, because slapping a title on someone implies status. In this case, the lowest. And you shouldn't acknowledge this kind of thing with anything but a spanking.
    Can you say that you are desperate for attention? Sure you can.

      Please point to where in the article Mike revels in Bob's self-inflicted misfortune.

        Re: Re: the absolute truth...

        Ok. I will point out exactly what you ask.

        Then what? You will just run and hide like the fake named phony pony you have alway been.

        You disgust every reasonable Republican.

        We will soon rule the world.

        Why?

        Because of inspirational figures like you.

        We have no choice bit to fill the void left by your nonsense.

        Prepare yourself.

          Give it a rest. You have 5, maybe 10 years left on this planet. Shouldn't you be out enjoying what remains of your life rather than spending it angry, in a dark room, surrounded by cigarette smoke and your own hate?

          This world no longer belongs to you. You had your shot and you fucked it up. Step aside and let everyone else clean up your mess.

          Great. Then maybe we can have a discussion about whether that was warranted or not, or whether that example constitutes reveling in another’s misfortune.

          Then what? You will just run and hide like the fake named phony pony you have alway been.

          Uh… That’s just name-calling. That’s not answering the request at all. Oh well. I’ll just wait until you actually answer.

          You disgust every reasonable Republican.

          Still waiting…

          We will soon rule the world.

          Still waiting…

          Why?

          Still waiting…

          Because of inspirational figures like you.

          Still waiting…

          Still waiting…

          Prepare yourself.

          Still wai— Wait, what? That’s everything? You never actually did what you said you would at the start.

          Well, it seems like all you did was spout meaningless drivel and empty promises, with some name-calling thrown in for good measure. There is nothing of substance in there.

          Maybe you could start to “fill the void” by actually answering the question like you said you would, okay?

          Which you didn't. It seems you promise a lot but do jack shit which places you in the category of dumb, blustery and impotent assholes.

      Bob Murray is just another republican piece of shit getting an equivalent dose of the empathy that his party exudes. He can always just pull himself up by his bootstraps, amirite?

    This week several million Americans went silent as the media promoted the idea that the ISIS leader was dead “in spite” of Trump.

    Some of these silent Americans have become radicalized.

    Think suicide vests.

    Boom.

    For God and country.

                Personally, I love the Democrats.

                They remind us all what it is to be American.

                Not demon cratic.

                American.

                The American way is to not kill people who disagree.

                Just vote them out.

                  The cia is here to enforce power.

                  Our power.

                  Brennan’s power.

                  Thank god for the deep state.

      You’re too much a coward to strap yourself in bro. And even if you did you’d trip fall and blow your own dick off, if and that’s a BIG if, you managed to not kill your self making the damn thing.
