BP Translated: “Whaaaaa, no fair; Everybody’s pickin’ on us ’cause we polluted the Gulf”

So BP has huge hand in the worst man-made environmental disaster in US history and now the company talking heads want to downplay the horrible impacts.

Geoff Morrell, the senior vice president of U.S. communications and external affairs at BP, penned an op-ed for Politico Magazine, which published the drivel on Tuesday of this week. It’s seems the endless train of propaganda-filled TV ads weren’t enough.

The headline of the op-ed (or in this case – odd-ed) – “No, BP Didn’t Ruin the Gulf.”

Morrell fails to mention impacts on the ocean floor in the Gulf of Mexico and the coral reefs and fails to touch on the impacts to wetlands and marshes along the coast.
Earlier today, Media Matters noted the misleading nature of the op-ed. And of course, BP seems to want us to forget the horrible images we saw as oil-coated animals suffered and died.
