Can You Guess What it Says?
This screen grab of the Digg "Top News" page (found on competing site Reddit, but it's not a Photoshop job as far as I can tell) pretty much speaks for itself. The sad part isn't so much that BP is spending money on PR damage-control - that was expected - but rather that it is featured on Digg mixed-in with the user-submitted content in such a way that it's easy to mistake for a regular entry. Come on Digg, don't help BP try to fool people! Via Reddit. See also: BP Gulf Oil Spill Cheat Sheet: A Timeline of Unfortunate Events
