I hope it gets feet and momentum. I hope other outlets jump onboard and back him up.

Good luck Mr. Cooper.

As CNN is now reporting, the U.S. government has issued a new rule that would make it a felony crime for any journalist, reporter, blogger or photographer to approach any oil cleanup operation, equipment or vessel in the Gulf of Mexico. Anyone caught is subject to arrest, a $40,000 fine and prosecution for a federal felony crime.

Damn that Boooosh!

Well, all I can say is, maybe it'll wake some people up. I can't hardly believe what's happening to this country, but it's there in plain sight.

An order so severe in punishment! We can only speculate that this catastrophe is much worse than previously reported.
Putting a muzzle on the media is certainly not the mark of a democracy.

What's cool is that people will ignore this order, give a big f-u to the gubmint, and youtube videos will circulate anyway.

A government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have
