BP trys to contain oil and media

Interesting piece in yesterday’s Washington Post about how reporters are facing resistance from BP in covering the Gulf Oil Disaster– prohibiting photogs from shooting and not granting overflights of the area.

Of course BP officials deny this, but …. I think they don’t want the public to see pictures like the one above. In case you can’t manage to make out the image, it’s a bird covered in oil.
