I think this is a hoax someone made to make the MSM look bad.
If you saw the actual footage of the West, TX explosion, then you'd immediately realize that the news segment was wrong, but it just so happens that someone was able to recall that the footage was actually from the PECON 1988 explosion?
Just seems a little far fetched to me.
And if you think the news simply used the wrong footage because it was better than the actual footage, you obviously haven't seen the real video which shows the enormous explosion, not just a large fire. At least two videos of the explosion were posted on YT so there shouldn't have been an issue with the news channel obtaining the video.
All this leads me to believe it's a hoax.

So what, does a Danish news show accidentally using a render of Damascus from Assassin's Creed automatically mean Damascus isn't real? Or the incident in which the United Nations Security Council logo was accidentally swapped with the emblem of the UNSC (United Nations Space Command) from Halo, does that indicate some kind of sinister conspiracy too?
It's a simple mistake, and the person who made it is probably already looking for a new job. Nobody is infallible, let alone a group of people like a news station.
