47. The oil spill will be hard to find accurate reporting
Edited on Wed May-12-10 10:03 AM by AllentownJake
I'm going to start looking at local newspapers from the region.

There are 3 parties that don't want to talk about this.

1) The political class, since both parties embraced this project and are responsible for the disaster.

2) The media class, because BP does a significant amount of business with the media class in the form of advertising revenue.

3) The corporate class, because they have fought so hard against regulation in belief of this fictional self regulatory market.

The locals will tell the real story.

It has been good to be back, it appears the sane are running the asylum here again and the thought police have been pushed down by the membership, as is what should happen.
