GULF SHORES, Ala. — While the Obama administration continues to say the national policy is that no American journalist can be restricted from access to oiled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, contractors for the British Petroleum oil giant seem not to have gotten the word.
BP executives must be thinking that since they broke the Gulf, they now own it.
Will the press and the American people and the administration stand for it?
The employee for the BP Contractor Safe Harbor said the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department arrested a member of the media on Tuesday, but a check with the sheriff’s department shows no such arrest.
