BP's Media Strangehold on the Ground in Louisiana

FRESH OIL!This account of being on the ground in Louisiana, where BP is really running the show, is pretty horrific. Have you felt like you’ve been unable to find any reporting from there? That is in part because pretty much everyone has ceded control of the actual physical territory to BP. Although the company is also occupied with scooping up spilled oil on the beaches-which makes Fake Sarah Palin’s Twitter joke (“I’m so heartbroken about this spill in the gulf situation. All those animals. They’re polluting our oil.“) all that much more biting.
