BP hires private security to keep reporters off beaches

BP, in a move destined to go down as one of the bestest public relations moves ever, has apparently hired a private security company to help to keep pesky reporters from covering the unfolding catastrophe on the beaches of the Gulf Coast.

That freedom of press thing is just so onerous and bothersome.

But while many in the news media blame BP, the real culprit may well be the Obama administration. When asked, Obama and other administration spokespeople say the U.S. government is in charge of the oil spill cleanup.

So, who is actually in charge? And why are reporters still being banned by a private corporation from going on public beaches?
