BP’s futile attempts at damage control
In a bid to hide the fact that BP has let billions of gallons of oil bilge into the sea, destroying eco-systems and livelihoods, it has decided to:
a) Launch a globally sourced clean-up campaign
b) Pump millions of dollars into economic damage control for the state of Louisiana
c) Buy internet search terms
That's right, the PR machine at BP is buying up search terms from Google and Yahoo in a bid to manipulate SEO and send people looking for information on the subject to its corporate response page.
