The Daily News gets the cover of the day for blundering into propaganda without seeing the context

PREZ PAIN it’s funny when you know more about his 4 hours of golfing afterward (maybe he should have played in the WH’s bowling alley instead of golf outside with the press in tow so we wouldn’t all see his pain)

As for actual pain, Pensacola is next in line to get the oil-kill

.and after months of wild guesses BP finally deploys sensors – but can we believe their readings?
