BP Finally Releases Video of Gushing Oil from Broken Pipe

It’s horrifying to think of the consequences. Look at it here. It’s on one of the links at the BP website. Not too obvious unless you search for it. It was first reported on web media giant Huffington Post which reports that BP waited 23 days to finally release this amidst pressure from the Whitehouse. It shows the broken pipe 5000 feet beneath the surface releasing a more than a million tons of oil a week.

I feel they continue to absolve blame by calling it the ‘Gulf of Mexico Response’ on its home page. Like this disaster somehow happened naturally and now they are benevolently helping with it. How do big corporations always get away with putting a false spin on things? They must have a very hard working Corporate Communications department.
