8/9/07: Meltdowns and the Public Eye

By Jennifer Napier-Pearce

Salt Lake City, UT – Tuesday morning, Crandall Canyon Mine owner Robert Murray became angry, defensive and emotional while talking to reporters about the collapse that has left six Utah miners trapped underground. While the stress public figures feel during crises is immense, decorum remains the watch word.

Thursday, Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks with Judy Keen of USA Today and Chris Thomas of Salt Lake's Intrepid Group about self-control in the public eye.
