BP = Butt Pirates
The lamestream media has finally caught on to the Mother Jones story about how British Petroleum is controlling — as in blocking — American press access to the mess these swine have made in in the Gulf of Mexico.
Speaking to The Washington Post, an unidentified turd-bag from BP — who remains nameless for no reason which I can comprehend — spake thusly:
“With regards to media, we follow an incident command system, a tried-and-true way of responding to crises. You have public information officers and you have a joint information center that includes the responsible party, BP, as well as government agencies who have involvement and oversight for this spill, the Coast Guard being the federal on-scene coordinator. We have state people, NOAA, representatives from Transocean [the company that owned the rig that created the spill]. We’ve had MMS. What we do is use information that comes in through our operations and create, if you will, the message to share.”
Uh huh. Well, fuck you, Captain Invisible. Journalism is not what is “shared” by criminals and the police, it is what is uncovered by a free press, which seems to be a little off the back here. I think a few journos need to get up in the grill of a few of BP’s hired goons, get arrested, and start writing some interesting stories from the Louisiana lockup.
But that’s just me. I write about bike stuff.
