“Gulf fishermen DOING BETTER THANKS TO SPILL” — “THRIVING THANKS TO BP”


The title of the article published by the FrumForum.com has now been changed to Gulf Fishermen Making Money Off Spill. The only evidence of the previous title is in the URL address www.frumforum.com/gulf-fishermen-doing-better-thanks-to-spill.

The website's name says it's a forum, but it does have a staff of writers which include Tim Mak. "Previously, Tim was a Koch Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute," according to his bio.

Some 'highlights' from Mak's piece:

South of New Orleans, in Venice, Louisiana, locals on the Gulf Coast are saying what no one seems to wants to acknowledge: that they’re thriving thanks to BP’s response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. ... Venice looked fresh...

A local businessman tells me that some of the fishermen on the coast who are suffering are getting what they deserve for cheating [on their taxes]. ...

This is not a message that people want to hear, but it’s an honest one. Louisiana’s coastal towns and New Orleans in particular aren’t hurting as terribly as was originally expected. In fact, some places are downright booming. And the $20 billion that BP is offering up? It may just save the endangered wetlands. ...

If BP stays until the situation returns to normal, as they promise, things will be okay.
