image for BP Alters Images On Screen Of Supposedly Live Shot Of Leak

John Aribotis of Americablog was the first guy who caught the doctoring photos while studying the live feed being sent in.

"First, the picture was showing no leakage at all and they had already admitted that there was at least one. Next, I noticed that they had divers moving things around and trying to stop leaks from the ocean floor."

Of course, on his computer was one live feed being shone and on the television was another.

"It was obvious that the 'live feed' was an earlier recording."

The Washington Post has stated that BP seems to be no better at doctoring photos than it was in stopping oil leaks.

In response, BP spokesman Scott Dean told the press that there was no diabolical plot afoot. Rather, he said, a BP photographer with completely benign intentions just slipped the images in accidentally over a two-hour period.

Meanwhile, John Aribotis was wanting to know how their employee was doing that lost his foot to the shark.

"A shark went by, a foot floated by, and then the screen got really fuzzy."

"I have already answered that, young man", replied Dean. "I clearly stated that there was no diabolical game a foot."
