Read this story and tell me what you think. I’m kind of conflicted.
First, if BP is blocking access to the beach, so that cameras can’t get in and reporters can’t cover the spill, without any doubt I think that is wrong.
On the other hand, if what reporters are upset about is that BP doesn’t want them tromping through clean-up efforts, or, if what Think Progress is asserting is that they have a right to interview employees while they are supposed to be working, I disagree completely. I can’t think of any organization from McDonalds to the CIA that would allow the media to just march on in the middle of operations and start questioning employees.
Am I out in left field on this?
