    What is this drivel? I have two words for you: Super. Tanker. There has been no effort to stop the oil from advancing. The barrier plans were on the shelf for over a month. Still there is no vacuuming of the oil, despite Hofmeister’s advices and the proven track record with the 700 MILLION gallon “spill” in the Arabian gulf by Saudi Arabia’s Aramco. I will tell you the people’s reaction: Sick of President Poser, sick of BP, wondering what law says the feds control Louisiana and knowledge that control equals highly suspicious inaction. Read a little real info by Mark Warren of Esquire.

    I’m sorry you think that this post is “drivel,” but I think that you misinterpreted my musings. This post critiques US mainstream (print) media coverage in the early weeks of the disaster, not the politics of the effort. I would also suggest that your notion that there has been “no effort” is a bit misguided. Although unsuccessful and frustrating, there have been efforts at some level. Thank you for your comment.

    I think you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    Many things are actually happening…but where is the drama in that!

    This is being used as a political football instead of a humanitarian crisis by the press.

    The Real story is happening in Louisianan Not on Fox or the Dem shows..
