BP now controls federal, state and local law enforcement

This headline sounds absurd. It MUST be hyperbole, right? Wrong. Glenn Greenwald has the details. There is a war against the press and BP is operating a police state, thanks to BP largess and government acquiescence.

Obviously, the U.S. Government and BP share the same interest — preventing the public from knowing the magnitude of the spill and the inadequacy of the clean-up efforts — but this creepy police state behavior is intolerable.

Greenwald links to Raw Story for more details and a video featuring Anderson Cooper.

  2. Erich Vieth says:

    New satellite data from the European Space Agency (ESA) shows that 20 percent of juvenile bluefin tuna have been killed by oil. Which is pretty significant since Atlantic bluefin have declined over 80 percent in the past 30 years, and at current fishing rates the critically endangered fish will be extinct by 2012.
