BP contractors are operating alongside the FAA and Coast Guard at a command center that approves or denies flight requests. Charter pilots say they have been denied permission to fly below 3,000 feet when they have reporters or photographers aboard.
Those special flight restrictions, imposed on May 12, cover thousands of square miles of the Gulf and a broad swath of Louisiana's coast. Normally there are no restrictions on flying.
Other media, including The Associated Press, have reported coverage problems because their access has been restricted, though not all have linked the decision to BP. Government officials say restrictions are needed to protect wildlife and ensure safe air traffic.
Ted Jackson, a photographer for The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans, said Saturday that access to the spill "is slowly being strangled off."
A CBS news story said one of its reporting teams was threatened with arrest by the Coast Guard and turned back from an oiled beach at the mouth of the Mississippi River. The story said the reporters were told the denial was under "BP's rules."
No corperation has the right to restrict our access
If we find them in MS and they are violating our rights and the Constitution, it will not be good. That's all I will say about that.
" Well actualy they do "
"In order to take action do you have to actualy catch someone in the act of violating your constitution?, or do you persue known delinquents and violaters of it throughout the nation?
Like if say a particular senator introduces legislation that directly violates your right and your constitution will you attempt to bring him to justice? or is it only if you happen to see somebody lurking about the swamps in the middle of nowhere granting titles of nobility to people would you take action?"
The political problems in this country are vast and complex, they will take time and action to fix. How it can be fixed can be found in the second amendment. That is our safe guard aganst tyranny which is no the topic here
