BP won’t show TOP Kill on live video! Seriously?

by admin on May 25th, 2010

In another of BP’s “what are they thinking” moves, they’ve announced today that they will kill the spillcam video from the Deep Horizon wreck during the top kill procedure. Congressman Ed Markey who held BP’s feet to the fire to get them to post the live oil spill webcam footage in the first place was none to happy. Here’s his remarks:

“BP has told the chairman of the House subcommittee on energy and the environment that it will be killing the live feed video of the spill at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico while it attempts to seal the well using the “top kill” procedure, Rep. Edward Markey said in a statement.

The statement said BP informed Markey’s office the feed would be “terminated” sometime Wednesday.

“It is outrageous that BP would kill the video feed for the top kill. This BP blackout will obscure a vital moment in this disaster,” Markey said in a statement. “After more than a month of spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico, BP is essentially saying to the American people the solution will not be televised.”
