Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

On Saturday Norfolk Southern CEO Alan Shaw visited East Palestine to meet with officials after the disastrous train derailment on February 3.  Norfolk Southern has come under scrutiny for their response to the disaster.  A letter from the railway company said that clean up efforts are underway as they coordinate with federal, state and local agencies and the company is creating a $1 million fund to help the community.  In a statement Shaw said, “Our company will be working tirelessly every day to get East Palestine back on its feet as soon as possible. We know we will be judged by our actions, and we are taking this accountability and responsibility very seriously.”
