Untrue. It's not "washing up everywhere"... That's absurd. If it was "washing up everywhere," you wouldn't be able
to cover it
Thus far, all we've seen are very narrow, isolated snapshots of oil on beaches, a few oil-containing booms set up to "protect marches," a
of images of dead fish, oil-stained pelicans, and a lot
of hysterical ANECDOTE
about environmental apocalypse.
We've heard that over 100 miles of Louisiana beaches have been impacted — yet the most panoramic photos show less than a quarter-mile of oil on
beaches. Just 2 days ago, a news story declared that the first oil
had come ashore on a Mississippi beach.
WHAT? Over 2 months of spillage, and the oil is just now
reaching Mississippi? That's right there
next to Louisiana.
A week ago, "official sources" warned that tar balls and oil patches were coming ashore in the Florida panhandle. However, the same day
locals were reporting nothing but clear water and clean sand. NOW
the story is that they're covering up
the oil with fresh sand, so it
it just looks like
there's no oil coming ashore in Florida.
This is bullcrap
As I said, if it was washing up everywhere
, there is no way in hell
they could clean it up and pile fresh sand on it fast enough.
The obvious answer is that the majority
of this "environmental disaster" only exists in the Mainstream Media.
