I just saw on The Colbert Report (of all places!) that news media (ALL of them, not just the mainstream media) reporters are being prevented from access to the cleanup operation by Exxon itself, via its security guards, apparently. Also reported there is that the FAA has declared a no-fly zone over this area ~ why? Are they afraid of airborne film crews? The environmentalist video shows nearby wetlands covered in black tar, with what looks like just paper towels placed on the water's (if you can call it that) surface; no personnel were present. The report was that the cleaners in their hazmat suits were sweeping the oil into the local storm drains. There didn't appear to be any suction equipment in the video. This is a bigger story than anyone is being let know about, and my personal opinion is that Exxon has 'influenced' those in power from questioning their methods. The Colbert Report's report (4/9) was the only thing I've seen or heard as a followup to this incredibly serious story. This show repeats twice in the daytime in my area, but can be accessed online as an archived show. Write your congressional representatives & demand a full investigation.
