Editorial: Spill's impact lingers, Pensacola News Journal, January 6, 2011:
National coverage of the aftermath of the spill is fading faster than the oil itself, which has all but disappeared — to the naked eye. The fact that the oil and the chemicals used to break it up are still widely dispersed throughout the Gulf of Mexico might be scientifically significant, but the lack of "visuals" makes it a far less compelling story.
Oil? What oil? We don't see any oil.
