From this Newsweek article, about how photojournalists feel it\’s possible that BP and the Coast Guard are being overly restrictive towards who gains access to the affected areas of the Gulf Coast:
Some Gulf Coast watermen find BPâ€™s desire to limit press access obvious. â€œIf there was a major fire in a warehouse, would you let reporters go inside and start taking pictures?â€ asks Peace Marvel, a charter-boat captain in Venice, La.
Pardon? I didn\’t realize BP owned the Gulf of Mexico. Then again, I suppose with the massive profits they make, they probably could buy it. Nor is this an official dumb statement (though there have been plenty of those). I do think it\’s fair to be skeptical about BP\’s intent here
– then again, I\’m a skeptic by nature. Thoughts?
