BP has gone to great lengths over the past few weeks to keep all video of the oil spill away from Americans. BP posted a live video feed of the gushing oil well only after being pressed by Congressman Ed Markey. BP has had security crews preventing the media from accessing areas affected by the oil spill. A videographer who shoots video for my company was refused access to locations in Venice, Louisiana by BP security personnel, even though the Coast Guard had previously given permission. Finally, however, there are oil spill video images being made public. And they tell a heartbreaking story of the effect of the oil spill on the wildlife of the Gulf Coast. These are the oil spill video images BP doesn’t want you to see.
Update June 5, 2010: We’ve added two more videos at BPOilNews.com. These videos contain oil spill pictures from Associated Press and CBS. Warning: these videos aren’t safe for small children.
