Some people are pushing for the federal government to take the lead in the effort to stop the Gulf oil leak. But is that a good idea? We're keeping them honest on that and other developments in the crisis. Plus, a new royal scandal. The Duchess of York caught on tape on trying to sell access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew. We'll give you an up close look at the drama.

The feds should have been involved at the very beginning.
I am Canadian and I am very concerned about this tragedy and the developments unfolding in the area.
I think the entire planet is concerned about this issue. Canada already offered its help by sending abroad scientists specifically trained in these disasters. I am certain many other countries offered to help.
FIrst of all, BP is not even paying 50% of the cost of the disaster, their insurance company is covering the most part and this will raise the price of insurance globally without a doubt. Already, BP is kind of off the hook. They showed sign of major negligence before, why would we expect them to be on top of their game during the recovery process.

Lindsay looks like a very unhappy person.

Lohan....good heavens, does she care about anyone but herself?
Thank you, for another awesome show; greed, off-color captains and naughty former princesses:) I hope everyone has a great night.
Randi looks great! good to see you again!!!!
Does BP or the govt know how much oil is gushing out of the well at this point?
What is the national incident command that I've heard of and how much of a command does that command have?
Possibly the Sec of Defense doesn't want to make a statement at 10pm about the repeal of don't ask don't tell. I'm glad congress is finally taking this step.
That is an interesting report on Capt Phillips and the Maersk Alabama crew by Drew Griffin. Sounds possibly like the Capt was under pressure to make port at a certain time. How did shipping dispatch handle the warning received by captains.
"Well it certainly seems that the Duke and Sarah Ferguson are cut from different types of cloth."
indeed! that's put very well.
The purse strings of the Royal Family are not a pretty picture, Renee.
Her children are royals. They really need to be helping out Mummy at this point. They can support her. The Royal Family are billionaires.
OH! Lindsey Lohan! I don't really care~
You look very good Anderson! You always look great! 🙂
I'm sure you did a great job for all those students, if it's what I'm thinking...
That's nice, Anderson!
Ferggie seems to not be able to help herself......this is not the 1st time she has attracted she has attracted scandal.
I am certain she is sorry for such a poor decision.
All she gets is $15,000 pounds per year! That is it! Where was Gloria Alred?
I hope that never happens to me.......
This whole thing is so sad. oh no, I smell another book deal!
Shame on Duchess of York!!!!! She will be trouble her deal! 🙁
isn't videotaping a (former) royalty or any normal person illegal? what are the laws in the UK about this kind of stuff?
what prompted for the reporter to meet with the Princess? sounds fishy...
Ahh, liar too. Hmm, she may need to go to confession
Those royals sure like to inflate their importance. I couldn't care less about any of them.
What ever happen to riding horses in the morning and wear evening wear to dinner? What happen to royalty?
Oh dear, Sarah....never can quite 'fly right' for long, in the royal-game. (I bet lots of back-room deals are made in the Royal Family.)
