Al Gore: Stop censorship?

Al Gore posted the following on his blog yesterday afternoon:

These reports are deeply disturbing:

“When the operators of Southern Seaplane in Belle Chasse, La., called the local Coast Guard-Federal Aviation Administration command center for permission to fly over restricted airspace in Gulf of Mexico, they made what they thought was a simple and routine request.”

“A pilot wanted to take a photographer from The Times-Picayune of New Orleans to snap photographs of the oil slicks blackening the water. The response from a BP contractor who answered the phone late last month at the command center was swift and absolute: Permission denied.”

This behavior is completely unacceptable. Access by reporters should be as unfettered as possible. This de facto form of censorship needs to stop.


Access for thee, but none for me, Al?

BP is raping Mother America, doing it with impunity, and hiding the evidence, and you rightwingers, instead of taking BP to task, pitiably attack a fellow-American for asking BP to behave itself. You punks (including you too, Drudge) ought to be ashamed of yourselves!

You won't see anything on this blog that's sympathetic or supportive of BP.

RTFB, dude.
