Blah Blah Blah

Abby Zimet

It seems the caring folks at BP have thoughtfully set up a Call
Center so frantic citizens can vent - and not get through to "the big
people" who really matter. A report
at a Houston TV station finds that the 100 operators answering calls
serve as a pointless screen, and often don't even take notes. Likewise, BP
is still barring
media from covering the havoc they've wreaked, denials notwithstanding.
Get these people in jail, please.

"We take all your information and then we have nothing to give
nothing to give them. (Operators) just put down, type ‘blah blah blah.'"

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
