Under the guise of security and safety the Coast Guard has suddenly decided to keep the 4th estate away from response vessels and beach booms. Anderson Cooper tells you all about it.
I am not impressed by Thad Allen's claim and it's time to dump him and any other bureaucrats kissing BP's backside. No problem embedding reporters into COMBAT UNITS UNDER FIRE!! but not safe for them to report and photograph the oil spill cleanup. This is transparency? This makes sense?
