Newsweek is reporting that BP is working with the government to restrict access by journalists, particularly photographers, reporting on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Here are a couple of related stories:

If you are having trouble with access while covering the BP oil spill, or hear about someone else having problems, please contact us at the nppa advocacy committee at [email protected] or [email protected]

If you know of another article that addresses this issue, please post it in the comments.
