Memo to President: Do Not Trust BP

Nation Editor Katrina vanden Heuvel appears on Real Time with Bill Maher with Andrew Sullivan, Van Jones, Judd Apatow and Paul Begala to discuss BP's latest talking points.

When Andrew Sullivan points out BP’s 760 OSHA violations (about 38 times that of other oil companies combined) vanden Heuvel agrees BP’s numerous violations puts the corporation in a class of its own. It’s clear that the government must be the ones to regulate the oil corporations and not vice versa.

“I hope the president understands you cannot trust an oil operation to run this operation,” she says.  “It’s like putting Dick Cheney in charge of human rights.”
