Maybe they could hire "Tim" as their pr guy.


The fact that the Coast Guard and federal officials have enacted a 65 foot "buffer zone" ((evidently at the bequest of BP)) under threat of arrest that has been enforced against journalists shows that the Obama administration and the Coast Guard have been talking out of both sides of their mouths when it comes to "transparency" during the clean up of the oil spill.

Evidently, this administration considers it a felony to report on an oil-covered bird, but not a crime to kill 11 people while spilling millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf.

It also makes no sense to keep PBS reporters away from the (public) treatment centers where oil spill workers have been getting medical help for getting sick from the dispersants and oil fumes.

See the report from CNN's Anderson Cooper here:


This is blatantly illegal, and AP, CNN, PBS, etc., ought to turn their high-dollar, white-shoe law firms loose on this crap. Nailing an injunction to the front door of the White House sounds about right.
