BP CEO Laments ‘Rush to Judgment’

Spoken like a true Tony Hayward: BP’s new CEO Bob Dudley blamed the media for hyping fear about the Gulf Oil spill on Monday, lamenting “a great rush to judgment by a fair number of observers before the full facts could possibly be known, even from some in our industry.” He also thanked the British government for its “stalwart support.” He said, “At the height of the crisis it made a big difference knowing we had such good friends at home.”
