Executives from Transocean Ltd and Halliburton Co joined BP Plc officials on Tuesday for a day of grilling before two U.S. Senate panels to explain how the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico, setting off a giant oil leak.

Hell, Obama just gave a no bid contract to Haliburton. If this was Bush the media would go nuts.

Out with Obama. No wonder no one reads or listens to the MSMedia anymore.

You can't trust them to do a neutral job.

And you must be VERY careful in doing 'searches' on your search engines. The top spots are 'bought, paid for' by groups, companies. YOU are responsible for finding BALANCED reporting.
