Every media outlet has its own niche when it comes to the BP oil disaster. The Wall Street Journal, not surprisingly, is concentrating on the ups and downs (mostly downs) of BP stock prices. Mother Jones is muckraking (literally) from an environmentalist perspective. Even The Huffington Post is doing its own thing, which involves one of Arianna's celebrity friends penning a new-age, pop-psych essay called Drawing Blessings From the Gulf Oil Spill. ("To best serve the Gulf of Mexico, ourselves and our world, I encourage focusing and having faith in the power of divine love. By focusing on bringing greater good into manifestation, there can be a returning to the natural order that thrives and creates bounty.")
With everyone getting into the act, it's no surprise that the National Enquirer is muscling in on the action with a story headlined OILY BP BOSS BUSTS UP NUPS!:
BP boss CARL HENRIC-SVANBERG isn't just being blamed for the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, he's the accused villain behind the breakup of a Massachusetts couple's 18-year marriage! ...
What's more, just days after BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20 - leaving 11 dead and millions of gallons of oil spewing into the gulf - the lovebirds vacationed in Phuket, Thailand on his luxury yacht!
