Hi, Chris –
Here’s a Hardball question.
Have you done any sustained and significant reporting on the true aftermath of the BP oil spill in the Gulf? I watch your show a lot – more than three times a week. I was even on your show years ago [3/20/2006] speaking out about the Iraq War with Military Families Speak Out.
I have not seen on your program anything on current conditions in the Gulf. You should do some stories, especially since BP (with its nightly lies about a recovered Gulf) is a major sponsor of Hardball, sometimes multiple times per show. (Just as Shell Oil is a sponsor of your Facebook posts while they frack the environment to irreparable harm in my western Pennsylvania home.)
In case you cannot point me to any recent in-depth reporting on the continuing environmental disaster in the Gulf, I’ll post a couple of stories to get you started; then please let me know if you plan to do any segments about the ongoing disaster in the Gulf.
