Via the Dot Earth blog comes this particular exercise in car-crash PR. Maybe you've managed to miss the section of the BP website which contains the work of the 'BP Reporters' - corporate lackeys who are paid to produce puff pieces about Louisiana and how the company is responding to the oil spill.
There have been some absolute shockers - Ballet at sea is a wince-inducing 'favourite' in the office - but a new post where their reporter Tom Seslar flies over the gulf in a helicopter, without once sighting the oil spill - or at least, without referring to it.
He includes in his piece some cheerleading for the oil industry, which seems in pretty poor taste, given the circumstances -
It's likely there will be no alternative to the Gulf as a key source of American energy for decades to come. That's why it is so essential to protect it. Even the most severe critics of the oil industry tend to accept that reality.
Anyway, it's good fodder for some web video...
