Mr. President, can BP arrest Our Journalists?

Mr. Obama, it would be disturbing enough if media censorship of a major event in this country were imposed by our own government. But for it to be imposed by a FOREIGN-owned corporation is unfathomable. I am not aware of any legal provision that gives standing to foreigners to authorize the arrest of American citizens for any reason, so the obvious question that follows is this: Under whose authority is the threat of arrest for photographing dead and dying animals being issued? Under whose authority, for but one example, was a reporter from WDSU in New Orleans turned away from seeing for himself the havoc being wreaked on his state?
