Bashing BP has become part of the daily BBC routine and so it was delighted to report this morning that Obama has given an interview on US TV in which he asserts how “angry” he is about the entire situation. Quite how the petulance of the US President helps the matter in hand I do not quite understand but we can be confident the BBC will not explore that line. Instead, the BBC went on to repeat Obama’s odd comment that the reason he is so “angry” is because some people (BP) “didn’t think through” what they were doing. The BBC could ask if those US politicians who force Oil Companies to drill in deeper and deeper off-shore waters “didn’t think through” the consequences of their green thinking. But it won’t, of course. Big Oil = Bad. It’s such a simple meme. Wonder what Big Broadcaster = ?
Update; The evil BP has apparently succeeded in placing a cap on the leaking Oil well. The BBC followed this up with a story stating that the advent of hurricane season in the Gulf will most likely have a disastrous effect on the means employed to hold the cap, so…. it’s all to awful! Can we not just arrest “Big Oil” and thrown them all in Guantanamo?
