A major spill is always going to be a PR disaster for the oil company at fault, but these last few days have seen BP’s image take hit after hit. First, the oil made landfall and journalists were barred from the beaches by BP. Then there was the news that BP overruled drillers in the hours before the blast. There were also more Senate hearings, where Senate Democrats are trying to raise the liability cap for BP to $10 billion. All this while the oil still gushes and BP’s ongoing battle with the EPA over the use of toxic dispersants refuses to go away. So Pulizer Prize-winner Mark Fiore decided to lend the troubled oil giant a hand and produced his lastest animation from their perspective. Enjoy!
