    First of all gratz to you all at G4 for taking time out of your schedules to cover this cause i think you are the only ones who actualy care whats goin on. Second of all I don't think that this was on accident at all. I believe that BP wanted to make a economic bust on the United States for their own gain, and then maybe who knows what. Plus if this was an accident BP would have taken and used every single idea that people all over the world have given to them instead of just trying their own useless ideas. And BP claiming that they will pay people back for their efforts is also rubbish. If they had the money to pay people back they would have lceaned this mess up and gotten it over with. I think that this is an attack on the United States and it should be stopped. I would like to know why the US hasn't said the heck with this and we clean it up ourselves since this is killing our and out territory mostly. Once again I personally thank all of you at G4 for helping with this effort.

    I appreciate the show covered this catastrophe, many thanks. The worse part of this is, of course, the environmental damage being dealt, but beyond that, this event is also destroying peoples businesses and jobs that rely on the many people who like to travel through the region for tourism of the coastal areas. Is BP going to reimburse all those people for the revenue lost to workers and small business owners? Will our Mineral Management Services ever fire all those corrupt coke-heads that let BP ignore safety regulations in the first place???

    The sooner mankind is gone from this wonderful planet the better... I have never been so angry and lost for words, this is tragic and just so sad. I struggle to watch the news without crying.

    Korean Anime: Wonderful Days (2003) I posted this before. In the film, Ecoban is like so many of the worlds elite.

    This is my first time posting or commenting anything on G4TV.com, since I stopped watching the channel when I saw it kept getting worse and worse, especially with Attack of the Show.. until I watched these two videos. I can't put in words how amazing Kevin was about reporting this catastrophe. You can just see that he was passionate and serious about this issue, internet memes and fart jokes aside this time. These two videos have regained my respect on G4 and Attack of the Show, even moreso for Kevin Pereira. What you guys have done with this report is something that not even national news channels have dared to do. You're exposing the TRUTH to everyone, something that no one else is willing to do. That takes courage and balls. And this is coming from a VIDEOGAME channel. Amazing. I actually got a little teary eyed when Kevin showed those pelicans covered in oil. Even more teary eyed when he spoke to everyone at the end of the second video to not forget about this and to keep talking about it. Who else do you see on TV say something like that?
    I can't describe how proud I am of G4 for showing this report. You have regained one more fan in me. Keep doing these kinds of reports! Because no one else will!

    Mad props to G4, AotS and Kevin Pereira for this.

I have a new found respect for you guys and I appreciate everything that is being done to put this type of catastrophe into the public light, everyone on the globe should know exactly what is going on in the gulf, and with BP

    I would like to see more on how the government is not responding to the spill as intensely as they should be; this is a disaster that is going to impact many states in the coming years and especially when Hurricane season hits and picks up that water and pulls it up on land and spreads it over a couple of states spreading it on fruit trees and crops.

    Thank you G4! This is an epic disaster, and I'm glad to see the G4 niche is spreading the word and encouraging others to help.

    Reddit has been covering the spill extremely at http://www.reddit.com/r/oilspi ll/, so this is not news to most of us here - but it was incredible how you brought it all together. We're posting it all over the web. Keep up the good work.

    I don't know how much of this piece was "journalism". I wouldn't liken it more to a Michael Moore-ish, outrage piece. But Kevin did allright and its nice to see him a little out of his comfort zone.

    I think its easy to look at BP as this huge, evil, oil empire and forget there are real men and women working on those oil rigs and there were real people who lost there lives when this tragedy occurred.

    I honestly don't believe BP is doing "nothing" to solve this problem. This is not something that happens everyday- In fact, it never happens. Its not like they can take a giant spoon and scoop up all the oil out of the gulf.

    And of course BP is not going to be %100 open with the media and the public when we are living in the most litigious society in history- A society that believes in complex conspiracies over simple accidents.

    "Attack of the Show", on G4tv is what I usually watch for a diversion, a giggle, a laugh. But this report on the BP oil disaster, is the first one, of all the many I have seen on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, HLN that made me cry. Kevin Pereira's coverage was truly heartfelt and not just news coverage. Please watch.

    Hey, all

    I created an account just for this purpose. First of all: Thanks Kevin. You did an amazing thing.

    Second of all: This is happening now, in other parts of the world. Check out the effects the oil industry has been having in the Niger Delta: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N igerian_Oil_Crisis

    This is a story that many 'mainstream' media network programs approached with trepidation, and it's GREAT to see G4 standing up and representing the TRUTH UNCENSORED about the facts BP are trying to sheen over and hide. Great report, Kevin. It's stories like this that DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE and get people to stand up against the corporate regime that now must be held accountable for this tragedy.
