BP media spins

BP media spins

BP Liz Castro (yes, she is still around) yesterday told a group of realtors that BP’s current policy is to only pay claims to realtors on failed property sales blamed on the oil spill if the property is within one block of the beach, according to report by the Daily News. Castro spoke at town [...]

Say it ain’t so, Bobby Jindal

We found out on Friday that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has vetoed a bill that would have required him to preserve and make public all documents his office handles regarding the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster. Jindal said the legislation would have hurt the state's position in future [...]

Pensacola Beach is the Wild West

Who is in charge of the cleanup/cover up activities on Pensacola Beach? Heavy equipment is destroying the beach daily. I have a confirmed report from a county official that at least one sand dune has been leveled to provide access to the beach for the equipment. Areas of beach are being roped [...]

Email on BP in Bayou Chico

To the Pensacola City Council (which doesn't meet again until July 19): I live in a townhouse on Mahogany Mill Pond, and I am very concerned about the Bayou Chico BP decontamination operation to be located at the old Runyons facility. Bayou Chico is a recovering Bayou, with an interesting mix [...]

Questions Suttles should have been asked

BP COO Doug Suttles flew into Pensacola yesterday. He visited Ft. Pickens to watch workers clean up a relatively light mess on the beach there.

BP hires uber Barbie

BP hires uber Barbie

BP has found it has too many men speaking for it nationally and will now use its local BP Barbie approach nationwide. "BP Barbie" is my description for the various female community liaisons hired by the oil giant to deflect criticism and avoid answering any difficult questions. Instead of [...]

Buzz: Crist moves TDC meeting

Buzz: Crist moves TDC meeting

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has moved the meeting with tourism officials from Northwest Florida from today to Sunday. It's anticipated that he will announce his plan to split the $25M that Tony Hayward said on May 17 he would give the state to help "Gulf region return to normal operations." BP had [...]

LA Times buys into BP outreach here

LA Times buys into BP outreach here

I've been highly critical of the British Petroleum local community outreach because the BP reps here have no knowledge, no technical expertise and no authority. Most have only worked for BP for a few days or a couple of weeks. So why are they so important to BP? Because they and the BP community [...]

The Mindshare approach

BP's marketing and public relations firm, Mindshare, has a case study of its website that touts what the company does. Making BP's media dollars work harder Mindshare helped BP to make the most of their media investments across the many states of the USA. Destination The USA forms one [...]

BP contacts can’t answer many questions, no surprise

BP contacts can’t answer many questions, no surprise

State Senator Don Gaetz emailed last week to the media and his constituents the list of BP Contacts in Florida.
