    Looks like somebody open the door to the control booth and the light showed in.

    Also, notice that the spill didn't follow the currents in the water. It just went straight up.

    It's supposedly a life feed from a camera under the ocean...
    Might that be explained by the oil being under high pressure?

    Only to a certain point. Part of the problem with the repairs was the strong currents down there, but they had little or no effect on the jet of oil supposedly coming out of the leak.

    But the fact is, a couple of times someone opened a door and I saw someone walk by outside the door.

    It's like they just took a video of a video and were recording it in a sound booth.

    But why? Wouldn't it be simpler and make more sense to just air the video they had on their screen? :wtf:

    Also, while pressure might explain the plume, all those particles/globs seem to be immune to any strong currents as well.



    Not that this is the first time CNN has aired fake footage...
