BP Spokesman: No Need for Respirators; CNN Breathes a Sigh of Relief

A fisherman’s wife sees behind the scene’s PR tricks of BP. CNN could have revealed these same tricks to viewers, but fish don’t discover water. They are oblivious to the standard deception that an “uneducated housewife” reveals. The media need stories like this because they don’t see their job as pressing the corporations. However they will reporting on other people pressing the corporations.

Oil Crud in Worker’s Lungs. EPA’s Failure.

Oil clean up workers and volunteers are going to have the same respiratory health problems as the workers on the Exxon Valdez and 9/11 Ground Zero workers.

OSHA is waiting for the EPA to tell them the air is so bad workers need gear. Until that happens BP will not provide the gear to workers.

The EPA should start providing real-time air quality monitoring at the worker level ASAP.

I describe what steps I’ve been taking to make this happen since I started my group, BP, We Demand Respirators for ALL Clean Up Workers.

BP, We Demand Respirators for ALL Clean Up Workers

Oil clean up workers are getting sick. BP is not providing high quality respirators for everyone. By using the conventions of journalism, the misuse of science, after-the-fact lawyering, and plain ol’ bs to workers, and maybe appealing to macho vanity BP is getting to get away with this. But you might be able to do something about it.

Rupert and Me: I Question the NewsCorp

Last week I called up Rupert Murdoch and, in front of the entire industry analyst community and the media, I asked him how long he was going to subsidize the money-losing Glenn Beck show.

He said that Fox wasn’t subsidizing him. Beck has lost a minimum of 81 advertisers. All he has now are a few random ads, house ads and gold ads.

Race baiting and suggestions of killing political leaders might be popular on the right, but it doesn’t have to be profitable.

Utah taxpayers duped into providing free police services for Tea Party Express fundraising event?

The Tea Party Express sails into town in their huge buses, suck up taxpayer services and hold their event in public parks all the while screaming about the need to cut taxes and reduce government services.

They position the event as a free speech event instead of a fundraiser with entertainment and booths selling t-shirts, flags and CDs.

Community taxes keep your city running. It seems unfair that outsiders who hate government services and taxes should use your services without giving anything back. If you are in Provo or Salt Lake City maybe your city managers and police would like to get paid. Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and Joe the Plumber are getting paid to help this group fund raise, why shouldn’t your police? Check to see if your city is on the tour list and ask your city managers and police:
“Are you getting paid like the police in Henderson NV were? Are your officers getting sucked into doing this fund-raising event for free? Do you normally provide free security for other fund-raising events?”

SF Radio Host: Okay to Meet Government Employees With a Loaded Shotgun

Right-wing radio host Brian Sussman of Citadel station KSFO agrees with a caller who meets a government employee with a loaded shotgun.
This is the letter I sent to the government entity (California Air Resources Board). I also copied the Census Bureau who will also have employees going to homes in the next several months.
