Learn more about how BP is helping! Just enter "oil spill" into a search engine and their PR flacks will direct you to wonderful lies about how well BP is handling the crisis. Of course, they have the right to do this. It's just one more sleazy, misleading thing they have done related to destroying our environment.
Check out Slate.com for a story of two ways to get fired from a job with BP to clean up the spilled oil. One is to be an illegal alien. The other is to bring your own protective gear and breathing masks that have not been given to by BP.
So, in the context of the ongoing sleazy behavior and callous comments by the idiot BP CEO, the latest attempt by BP to manage public opinion looks even worse than it would for another company.
If the vapors from the spilled oil are dangerous, perhaps the entire Board of Directors should be made to go to the damaged area themselves and remain there until it is all cleaned up.
