We tried to drive back to the spill site but TVA became irate when we pulled off the road and tried to take some pictures - Matt and I were detained for almost an hour at a check point yesterday - TVA personnel appear to be under great strain, which is understandable but IMO they over-reacted. All we were doing was taking photos. This is a similar situation to what happened in Martin County - they block the roads for "public safety." Even the media is having trouble getting access now.
And because CNN and NPR and the rest waited several DAYS to cover the story, they won't be getting any kind of decent information now.
Way to go, corporate media. No wonder people have been turning to blogs. You suck.
