    Coast Guard bans reporters from oil cleanup sites

    Obama's crew is doing one helluva job of containing the slick. It's no wonder these clowns can't get anything done, if this is the kind of bull**** they spend their obviously limited brain power on.

    Journalists who come too close to oil spill clean-up efforts without permission could find themselves facing a $40,000 fine and even one to five years in prison under a new rule instituted by the Coast Guard late last week.

    So you missed this in the article:

    In defending the new rule, Allen told reporters that he got "complaints from local officials" about the safety of people near cleanup effort
    Obama has an iron fist over those local officials.

    Yet another abuse of "safety" in order to quell the rights of the press.

    What do they have to hide that they want to block the media from seeing?

    Oil is toxic. What if a reporter got in and somehow got sick or died?

    I think it's more in the best interest of public safety. Naturally people want to know what's going on. They should allow reporters to go there if they sign some sort of waiver.

    It will be interesting to see how this thread plays out. I recall some of our more animated left wingers making huge stinks regarding the press and random stuff a few years back....

    If reporters are genuinely getting in the way, I dont see a problem with kicking reporters out. I support freedom of the press, but if that is hindering cleanup efforts and safety, concessions must be made.

    geez...can you BE anymore partisan and quick to defend your guy??? You took ONE line in a story...an unsubstantiated line by the individual issuing the order to DEFEND the order...and apparently have ignored the reporters concerns? You arent even a LITTLE bit suspicious? I mean...this has been managed SO WELL since the outset...and they have been SO completely upfront and forthcoming with information about the spill...the clean up efforts, etc...so...no reason to be even a LITTLE suspicous (sarcasm alert). And hey...we arent even talking about the evil Fox empire...CNN is leading the charge addressing concerns.

    Of course! And the election in November...the fact that the story has pretty much disappeared from network news, gets brief mentions on news...its been...what...80+ days and daddy still hasnt plugged the hole (I guess babygirl must have stopped asking THAT question)...and the oil has spread from Texas to the Keys...thats just a happy coincidence and not at all part of limiting the news coverage.

    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.
