Well, I've been watching the "news" (if you can call it that) on the oil catastrophe since day 1. It has become painfully obvious to me (and
probably to most of us on ATS) that the "major news organizations" (ha!) are not actually reporting the real news down there. They seem to be only
reporting the news that has been "approved" by BP and the government. They can't even fly over the Gulf to get new daily pictures, for God's
It seems that the only thing that the MSM is able to report on, is the economic fallout of this disaster, and who to blame. There seems to be a
"media blackout" order in effect, about not reporting anything about health symptoms, or contamination of water, or investigating reports about oil
It's pretty clear that any angle of this news story that would cover the health ramifications from the oil disaster is being squashed. If it wasn't
being squashed...we'd have reporters asking people in the area if they're having any symptoms related to the oil, and they'd be asking doctors and
hospitals in the area if they are treating a larger amount of patients with strange symptoms. (A natural question...and a story angle that gets
covered after every major disaster...think about 9/11 for example, and all the health reporting we heard back then.) But we are seeing none of that
type of reporting now, are we?
This, to me, screams "media blackout." I guess it's their own version of the "don't ask, dont' tell" policy. If they don't ask us about health
problems in the area, we can't tell them.
So, this is what I am proposing. If the MSM is not going to cover this angle of the story (the direct and immediate health consequences of the oil and
dispersants in the gulf), we should. If you live in the gulf area, and you, or your family, or your city has noticed any new noticeable, or strange
symptoms, could you please post them here?
And for you professional government debunkers who are going to try to "debunk" this thread before it even gets started....go find someone else's
sandbox to pee in, please.
