    Ol Anderson Cooper and CNN better watch themselves. They keep trying to report on this stuff and it wont be long and the leftists will be ranking him and them right in with Beck, OReilly and Fox news.
    Seriously, spare me the drama. If there's a safety issue, then I dont really see why there's a problem with removing the reporters.

    Left or Right, it's news going on that can no longer being covered. Of course a NEWS network will be upset. It isn't a left vs right issue. It's more of an issue of safety vs awareness. Should we risk safety in order to be more aware of an issue? It's an issue that's highly debatable.

    The government didn't spill this oil. The free market did. It's their responsibility to repair and clean it up.

    Did the free market lease them the area?

    Did the free market tell them they had to go past the continental shelf into deep water?


    Did the free market give them a safety award?

    When that plane landed in the Hudson River a while back, my company got calls from reporters wanting to go up and fly around the site of the crash to take photos, while the evacuation and rescue efforts were still underway. I told him no, we wouldn't do that because it might interfere with the rescue effort, and that we'd probably be barred from entering that airspace anyway. He starting screaming about freedom of the press and his rights as a customer and whatever.

    Reporters need to understand that sometimes their presence constitutes a hazard to themselves or others.

    I will repeat my position...if this was Bush, this would be a front page story every news cycle and every democrat and liberal and tree hugger would be blasting him for not doing enough to solve the problem.

    Since...as we all know...Obama has been 'in charge' since day one.

    I dont CARE who's fault it was...you stop the leak. You preserve the shores and coastline. You worry about assessing blame and getting people to pay for it afterward but you stop the link.
