Slick News: BP Blocks Reporters

BP is apparently giving orders to the Coast Guard about what news can be reported about the oil spill.

When CBS tried to film a beach with heavy oil on the shore in South Pass, Louisiana, a boat of BP contractors, and two Coast Guard officers, told them to turn around, or be arrested.

“This is BP’s rules, it’s not ours,” someone aboard the boat said. Coast Guard officials told CBS that they’re looking into it.

How’s that PR campaign coming along, BP?
