The Associated Press reports "Spike Lee is calling a 'lie' a U.S. government report that 75 percent of the spilled Gulf Coast oil is gone."
According to the AP, "Lee said journalists should expose what he called the real story. He argued that it's unlikely that 'abracadabra, presto chango' the vast majority of the oil has vanished from Gulf of Mexico waters and coastal wetlands."
A report on deadline.com reveals one hour of Spike Lee's Katrina movie to be dedicated to BP's Gulf oil disaster.
Lee said, "It's really eye-opening the power that BP has. There's no way it should be dictating what's going on. But it shows the power of the company."
Lee added, "I don't care how many scientists BP buys, that oil is still there. [BP] has been lying from the get-go. You're telling me we've had the biggest oil disaster in the world and it's all gone now? Where did it go? No damage done to the wetlands? I don't believe it. As journalists, you need to ask questions and not accept the lies being told."
