Yesterday morning, CNN’s New Day aired a short program about Captain Schettino’s testimony at his criminal trial. He claims that he is not to blame for the deadly Concordia disaster.    

CNN’s Erin McLaughlin reports on the story.

I was interviewed briefly in the program.

    With all the legal liability, I really wouldn’t expect him to say otherwise. I imagine his lawyer would have a fit if he did…

    The “run aground” story surrounding this vessel is such a total farce.

    No captain would ever run a vessel aground. Clearly an intentional salvage to ditch the vessel and collect on the insurance.
