Shameful! BP Buys Oil Spill Search Words ON Google And Yahoo To Redirect People To Their Site!

In a shameful attempt to spin the Gulf oil spill, BP has admitted they bought search the term 'oil spill' on Google and Yahoo. Instead of real news about the spill, people who click the link at the top of the search result page are directed to a BP site.

Examiner reported:
In their most tenacious effort to control the ‘spin’ on the worst oil spill disaster in the history, BP has purchased top internet search engine words so they can re-direct people away from real news on the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe.

BP spokesman Toby Odone confirmed to ABC News that the oil giant had in fact bought internet search terms. So now when someone searches the words ‘oil spill’, on the internet, the top link will re-direct them to BP’s official company website.

This would not be the first time that BP has tried to control information to protect the company’s public image...

OK, now when I type in "oil spill" I get BP and that makes sense. They after all did cause the biggest oil spill in history and then some. However, my take is they are trying to spin the news.
