“BP Rules”: CBS Oil Spill Journalists Threatened With Arrest

Do you LOVE America?


    In The BP Oil Disaster is a WAY BIGGER Problem Than You May Think published on May 6, 2010, Wayne Madsen suggested that the reason for giving the BP oil spill national security status was to prevent media access to information and images. The following CBS video further proves the accuracy of Mr. Madsen’s report.

    Since when does a private corporation have the authority to control traffic in the open sea?

    The fact that US Coast Guard members openly admitted that these were not government laws or policies, but “BP rules,” and that they would arrest reporters attempting to take pictures, shows just how in bed the government is with corporate interests.

    There is a media blackout in the Gulf – and anywhere else where government and corporate interests feel it is necessary to control the (mis)information being disseminated to the American people and the world.

      1. A reporter of prominance with balls ought to force his/her arrest and sue …. breaking this wide open.

      2. BP = Barry’s Pals

      3. Reporter with balls? The American government controlled dinosaur media?
        Thanks for the morning laugh!
        These guys just didn’t get the memo.

      4. Of course they were threatened…you wouldn’t want the truth about what is really going on down there to get out now, would you? It must be far worse than anyone is telling us, but we will find out more as the Sh*t hits the shores of the gulf. This appears to be a disaster of apocalyptic proportions. Get yer beans, bullets and band aids stored away…cuz yer gonna need’m!

      5. Where is zuduka, i want to hear more about what he is predicting to happen today.  Today is the day isn’t it?

      6. 20smoney…there won’t be a response from the false prophet…it was a bunch of BS that seems to be running rampant on the web. Anyone (including the guberment) can say anything they want and they expect everyone to believe it. If there is a 9.5 in SoCal, then it will be only dumb luck that zuduka called it. I know you’re smart enough to know not to believe anything you read on the net, hopefully this will help other to be a bit more discerning.

      7. LJ i agree with you and my previous post was full of sarcasm.  Just looking forward to his next comment/post :)  Entertainment at least.

      8. Zukadu’s prophetic bible code nonsense has reached a level of insanity heretofore seen only in the mad ravings of Howard Katz.   It would be entertaining if it weren’t so pathetic.

      9. Oh zukadu, where are you?   What happened buddy?  I know, I know, your channeling got scrambled by the ET’s next door when they were phoning home.

        If you show your face around here after today, you have some brass ones, or are a glutton for punishment.

      10. If this leak isn’t stopped, (50,000 gal a day) it will continue to leak for 3 years at that rate, figuring the size of the oil well. 
        It’s doubtful they will  be able to stop the leak.  The gulf coast and other areas will be destroyed with massive job losses, along with trashed property values that will go on for many years.  As a  resident near the gulf  for decades, I got to enjoy the beaches.  Younger families have no future, no jobs  in this area and now can’t sell their houses to  move.  It appears hopeless without a doubt.  

      11. >It’s doubtful they will  be able to stop the leak.

        Maybe they should try. Unfortunately, sticking a 4 inch tube in a 20 inch pipe isn’t going to seal it.

      12. Did they think of putting a 22″ pipe over the 20″ pipe?

      13. for control traffic I prefer to use ProteMac meter

      14. BP is such a joke… they should all be arrested along with the US govt.  How long ago did they cap the leak? And how many legitimate claims are still “pending” from damages they suffered back in the beginning of the summer?  I happen to know three people that were affected directly by BP’s shady PR tactics and manipulation of our laws, one of whom was a journalist who was almost arrested and charged with felonies for taking pictures of oil covered animals near the coast.  Not only is it bad enough that thousands of fishers’ lively hoods are ruined for god knows how many years to come, they were paid a pathetic amount of money to clean up BP’s own mess.  To add even more insult to injury, BP used Corexit 9527, which contains mainly 2-butoxyethanol, which is very toxic.  You wouldn’t have to be a scientist to know that, since in the first week of using it over 70 fisherman ended up at the hospital. Of course if you even inquired about this, I’m sure the govt (which is pretty much owned by oil companies) would deal with you quite quickly, let alone taking pictures of it in an attempt to run a story on it.  If you didn’t know already, the govt is doing what they do best… crapping on the 1st amendment: <a href=”http://www.naturalnews.com/029130_Gulf_of_Mexico_censorship.html”> naturalnews.com/029130_Gulf_of_Mexico_censorship.html</a>.  My friend who almost got arrested on felony charges simply went out on a boat into about 30 feet of water and used a water proof cam to photograph one of the many oil plumes forming at the bottom of the surface (which BP vehemently denies).  Now here comes the hilarious part.  He switched the film in his camera with a blank one in the event they were stopped by police, which they were as soon as they got back to shore.  They let him go but still took his name down, and what do you know… later that night, 2 guys wearing black hoodies attempted to break into his house.  He caught pics of them on his home security system (he saved the pics… <a href=”http://www.homesecuritysystems.com/adt-wireless-home-security”>adt wireless alarm system</a> break in photos).  Hmm, I wonder who paid these guys to break in and what they were after?  Definitely not BP or our govt, that’s for sure!


      1. *Video - Oil Confirmed to Be Leaking from Cracks in Sea Floor - [...] it is becoming quite clear why there has been a media blackout in the gulf, as well as on…
      2. Frightening: Methane Explosion, Steam Volcano May Cause Massive Tsunami - [...] BP, the government and most of mainstream media engaging in what can only be dubbed amedia blackout and suspension…
