Live Video (3:30 PM EDT): Questions for BP’s Bob Dudley


BP Takes a Page from the MythBusters, Hires a Turd Polisher

By: Saturday June 26, 2010 9:00 am

Courtesy of the Washington Post, we meet Bob Dudley, the man reporter Steven Mufson dubbed “the human relief well.” His job, says their headline writer, is to “polish [BP's] tarnished image.”

Good luck with that, Bob. But don’t let anyone tell you that your job is impossible. After all, the MythBusters proved that you *can* polish a turd (as they delicately phrased it). But it takes a lot of focus on the task at hand, and also admitting that you’re working with a lot of crap to begin with.
