BP 'Small People' comment and oil spill blasted on Capitol Hill Thursday during congressional testimony by BP CEO Tony Hayward.
On his website, Al Gore criticizes BP for denying reporters access to the Gulf oil spill area. But is it a 'de facto form of censorship,' as the former VP says?

BP says it's capturing the 'majority' of oil from the Macondo wellhead after placing a 'top cap' siphon on it last week. Yet judging by the size of the plume on the BP live feed, some fear the BP oil spill is even worse after the operation than before.
