Is BIG OIL trying to become revered institutions?

It appears that way today more so than in any other time in our history. They have presented themselves to be part of our civilized culture. They run ads on TV and on the Internet to tell how they are at work for our part.

Most often their spokesmen and women appear to be a part of our political societies. Their spokesmen and women never say or write a thing until it has been through a battalion of their resident lawyers. WHY to make sure the well hidden lies stays behind closed doors.

Now some in our Propaganda Pushing Media Giants profess that lies are not that at all. They claim that telling a lie is more like painting a picture with brighter and bolder brush stokes colored of course for those that will benefit most.

So now comes again a blowout by Chevron drilling in water off the coast of Brazil. I have researched all that is available and the lies permeate every piece. Reminds me of trying to find out the TRUTH during the Macondo blowout caused by BP.

I will let you decide what you think is right or wrong with their SO FAR public notice of what went flawed and by whom. But in advance Chevron President is now calling the entire crisis a work of MOTHER NATURE.

BELOW EXCERPT from the Oil and Glory blog by Steve Levine

Specifically, the Brazilians say Chevron provided an excerpted version of a 24-hour underwater video clip of the spill, rather than the un-expurgated film, and that necessary emergency equipment was not on standby but had to be flown in.
All in all, this amounts to "negligence," the government said. In a statement on its website, Chevron said it will continue producing oil at Frade, but is suspending further drilling. It said it had reduced the volume of oil floating on the surface to a single barrel of crude, and denied it was unprepared for a spill. "Please understand that during those first days it was very confusing, very difficult to manage the flow of information," Chevron executive George Buck said in a public apology. Given the ultra-nationalistic politics of Brazil -- estimated to have 50 billion barrels of oil offshore -- it would be an extraordinary blunder if company officials did edit the rig video before handing it over.
