New rules in the Gulf will make it more difficult to see the disturbing reality of this disaster. Despite promises of transparency and full access - photographers, reporters and the general public now could face fines and felony charges if they get to close to response vessel or booms. We're keeping them honest. Plus, Anderson's exclusive interview with Jimmy Buffett. What the superstar thinks of the spill and how the area will recover.

Anderson, Is this ruling going to be challenged?What about the 2nd ammendment? Living in St.Pete. FL on the Gulf, we are all concerned about what is / or not happening on a daily basis. Seeing how impotent big oil and the Gov. are about this whole disaster it's no wonder they don't want us to know anything. Thankyou for your dynamic ,provocative and honest reporting. This is literally so sickening.
Nite all. Anderson keep on doing what you are doing. Thanks
I'm angry that any company or government agency would try to block the press or citizens from viewing the BP oil spill damage. I hope more Americans will oppose these new rules too. Thank you Anderson Cooper and the AC360 team for another great report!
AC thank you for reporting the truth. Thanks to the parish heads you interviwed for standing up and not being afraid of telling you what's really going on there with clean up.
Good night Anderson and bloggers Emily, Mike, Sree, Nancy, Nicole, Starr, and Megan.
This is a nightmare. The media doesn't give it anywhere near the coverage it needs, and deserves. I can't, for the life of me, figure out why. We're in trouble....big trouble.
Have a good night all and happy 4th!
Great show (as always) Anderson + Crew. Try and get some sleep this weekend. Y'all deserve it.
That seem to be a nice walk on the beach!
Thank you for letting us share with you Anderson!
Good night AC360 Team and fellow bloggers.
Anderson if BP tries to have you arrested for your great reporting on this disaster,,,don't worry there are many who will stand beside you and bail you out.
Stay safe everyone.
Good night and sweet dreams.

We are huge Buffett fans with 35 shows and counting under our belts. It is great to see someone with his passion and influence trying to make a difference in the situation. They need to let his boats thru to help the wildlife.
Good night Anderson, 360 Team, Jo Ann, Mike, David, Megan, Nancy, Sree, Gloria, & Bloggers! & Moderator(s)
Have a Happy 4th and wonderful weekend!
Anderson, thank you for staying on this issue. So many of us have deserted the stressful acknowledgment of this disaster, but you have hung in there and are there when we are ready to resume our support. . I personally have returned and will do whatever I can. One feels so inept watching. But, you, Anderson, are the spokesman for all of us! You do it so well--
Thanks Anderson for keeping us updated!
Good night everyone!
Anderson, I regularly watch your show and deeply appreciate you staying on "live" week after week to report this story and tell us the truth. Keep up the good work and have a great 4th of July!
Good night everyone.
Good job anderson
I hope Anderson and the crew are taking the best of care. Protective gear as you know is a must so no wheezing or other respiratory ailments while you are all in the coast. Thank you for fighting .
There is never a stupid question Anderson!
Jimmy says it best. "I know liars when I hear them". Maybe a new song?
Good night Anderson and everyone. Keep up the good work.
Good Night. I'll chat with you tomorrow!
Jimmy gave a free concert at LuLu's (his sister's restaurant) last night for the locals. I missed it, but I was so thrilled that he cared enough to give his time and talent. We, the locals, are fighting depression and fear every day.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
