Probably the last person the coal industry wants publicizing mountaintop removal and its detrimental effects on the environment is Oprah. But according to Ashley Judd, there’s a possibility the media mogul may become involved in the issue.

On this afternoon’s live Q & A over on the DailyKos, the actress let slip that Oprah has potentially expressed some interest in a piece on the topic. In addition, Judd is also trying to get ABC’s Diane Sawyer to do a special with her. “You can absolutely help raise visibility of this issue,” she said in the Q & A. “Diane Sawyer’s piece on the children in hollows aired to much national conversation recently. I phoned her producer about a MTRCM piece. Contact ABC and let them know you want to see her do segment with me about it! Also, there is a possibility Oprah is interested in a piece. I have also spoken with Anderson Cooper about it; if they public wants stories on it, they are more incentivized to do them.”

I love seeing Judd rallying these great media personalities to become involved in the issue. Anderson Cooper and Diane Sawyer would be great — but my hope lies with Oprah. I think a show dedicated to the topic would do wonders for organizations like Sierra Club, ilovemountains, or Kentuckians For The Commonwealth. We’ll have more on Ashley’s Q&A tomorow!

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
