AP journalist dives into Gulf, can only see oil


www2.tbo.com

Dropping beneath the surface the only thing I see is oil. To the left, right, up and down — it sits on top of the water in giant pools, and hangs suspended fifteen feet beneath the surface in softball sized blobs. There is nothing alive under the slick, although I see a dead jellyfish and handful of small bait fish.

Hmmmmm. There was an outcry at not enough press coverage. On second thought, perhaps that is not such a bad idea. I question the sanity of this AP "reporter."

Seriously, if a person is this ignorant to jump in a sea of visible oil how can we trust their credibility/judgement? This isn't exactly a "cat stuck in tree" event.

He is mad.
what he is doing makes no sense. "Ok I'm going in the oil without protection to see how much it is toxic. Ohh it seems it kills everything"

I guess he wasn't bright enough to realize that all he had to do was attach his camera to something and lower it into the water so that he didn't have to jump in. But I suppose that wasn't the point. He's an idiot who is trying to draw attention to himself.

As for the pictures, I'm not surprised. He likely jumped into the nastiest pool of oil he could find for dramatic effect.

Notice it was an Associated Press reporter and NOT a FoxNews reporter. Keep up the good work A.P. Your ratings reflect what the public thinks of you. (the same A.P. that help bring to the White House-POTUS Obama. Good job! and the same A.P. that assigned 11 reporters to Sarah Palin's AWESOME book).

I suppose we could continue to rip on the A.P. as there is so much but we don't have to because their next muck up will be moments away (or discovered soon).

I'll take a wild stab at what will be their next disgrace. It will be discovered how much they are covering up for, or not investigating properly, Obama's whole fake Birth Certificate and Social Security Number fiasco. (both of which you can see many ATS threads about).

I suggest you check out all those threads about Obama and his cover-ups (mostly aided by the A.P.) as you will see overwhelming evidence that would be sufficient for a criminal probe to commence on Obama.

Forget the oil what about the dispersant BP is using?

I doubt a human would be at much risk from the oil. I imagine it would create similar conditions to a dead zone, ie not enough oxygen or get sucked into the fishes lungs or something and the animals would be dying of hypoxia or something like that.

Aslong as he had a wetsuit and some tanks on he'd be fine.

Dang! I got to give ya yer first flag and a star to go with it!

Nice post. So very little info like this has been coming to light, thanks for finding and posting it, as I really don't actively watch or listen to MSM anymore.

A lot of reporters are actually 'into' their jobs enough to do things like this. I would say it is a risk, but then combat reporters have risks too. Would be nice to see some testing done on that goo he was swimming in!


ETA: I thought this was really telling, from your source in the OP:




I make my way to the back of the boat unaware of just how covered I am. To be honest, I look a little like one of those poor pelicans we've all been seeing for days now. The oil is so thick and sticky, almost like a cake batter. It does not wipe off. You have to scrape it off, in layers until you finally get close to the skin. Then you pour on some Dawn dishwashing soap and scrub. I think to myself: No fish, no bird, no turtle would ever be able to clean this off of themselves. If any animal, any were to end up in this same puddle there is almost no way they could escape.


Scary and sad.

The real comedy will begin when he files suit against BP getting sick.

I don't intend to derail a thread with the tonnage of video evidence speaking to the average IQ of a Fox News "Journalist"...but really...you want to go there?

I won't check it right now but I think there is a risk from contact with the skin. Yet he will probably never have problems.

Here's some video of this dive:

One encouraging sign from that video: there's still life underneath all of that sludge.

Thanks vor78, you one upped the OP, that video provides compelling evidence. When I've seen Cousteau's (sp?) grandson dive, he was wearing full dry suit, hood etc.

Thanks for your valuable contribution.

Not sure if that's his harry back, or his bald head.
I think he's a little over the top, with no concern for his own safty.
No wonder BP is trying to keep the idiots away.

I think you'll find that most people are perfectly capable of holding more than one thought in their head at a time. If you really must keep repeating "Obama's a bad man" lest you forget it, try to do so quietly and spare the rest of us from your monotonous whining.

Unlike most of you I havw the utmost respect for this man for going to get pictures of the worst oil disaster in US history and doing it with blatant disregard for his own well being. If all humans were willing to go this far for each other how much better of a world would this be.

Well if you look a couple posts up there's a video. Those men have permits to dive the spill. They are not only allowed to be there but are charged with the task.

They also jeopardize their own personal health and safety to show the world what BP doesn't want us to see. What's going on under the water. How can you criticize someone like that knowing full well that you don't have the guts to do the same?

It's a dirty job but someone has to do it!

I find your remarks unwarranted.
