Photographers having access trouble on the Gulf Coast

May 27th, 2010 by Alicia Calzada and tagged , , , , , , , ,

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:

From Mother Jones: It’s BP’s Oil

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 advo...@nppa.org or law...@nppa.org.

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