Travel writers visiting beaches on BP’s dime
Here are some of the publications:
- Baton Rouge Parents
- Houston Tribune
- Southern Hospitality Magazine
- Planet EyeTraveler.com
And what did BP’s money buy them?
“What the national media has been saying is totally untrue, for the most part, and blown totally out of proportion,” Stern said. “What they’re going to get from me is the truth. You can come down here, and you’re not going to get oil on your feet or tar balls on your shoes. … I haven’t seen anything in the sand other than sand, and I’ve been swimming in the water.”
Okay, so all you journalists out there and all you scientists, stop exaggerating! This travel writer has looked at the beach and determined that it was just a little tiny spill that hardly had any impact at all.
Oh wait! Water and Sand Samples From Siesta Key Sarasota Indicate 173 PPM Oil Contamination
The test results show that the sand samples taken in Sarasota Florida contained 173 Parts Per Million of Oil Contamination.
Interpretation – Thermocline stratification is causing dispersed and micronized (10-100 micron diameter) to slip into the shoreline from beneath the surface water, which explains why numerous water sample results throughout the Gulf region have been negative, thus far, despite the fact that we know there is massive oil and dispersant in the Gulf.
They even have a video that explains just what happened to make the oil go to the bottom of the ocean.
Man! Who to believe! BP paid journalists or… You decide.

Yeah and if BP paid for the turkeys, I'll ignore and continue to stay away from the beaches–and I've stopped eating that GUF seafood!
What is sad is that so much of the coastal town's survival depends on tourism, these towns are fighting for survival. I can remember beach days in Galveston where the hotels put out packets to get the tar off your feet, etc. It's a hard decision, but Americans should take care of each other. I would think that we could still visit, obviously not get to do everything, but still support the restaurants and other businesses. While there, we could photograph the truth and publish it, and still support those in need.
