BP denied Wednesday that it has ordered cleanup workers not to talk to reporters.
"Recent media reports have suggested that individuals involved in the cleanup operation have been prohibited from speaking to the media, and this is simply untrue," BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said in a letter e-mailed to CNN by a company spokesman.
"BP fully supports and defends all individuals rights to share their personal thoughts and experiences with journalists if they choose."
