Examples of accurate news reporting

The contraption used by BP was hooked up successfully and sucking oil from a pipe at the blown well Sunday afternoon after being hindered by several setbacks. Engineers remotely guiding robot submersibles had worked since Friday to place the four-inch tube into a 21-inch pipe nearly a mile below the sea.

Crews re-inserted the tube into the well's riser stack Sunday. The 4-inch pipe is now connected to a ship on the surface, 5,000 feet above the sea floor, and is pumping oil back to the surface, BP spokesman Mark Proegler told CNN.

It is thought that BP's 6in-wide (15cm) tube and stopper could capture more than three-quarters of the leak, although a smaller spill nearby also has to be contained.

The underwater operation used guided robots to insert the 21-inch pipe, known as a riser, to funnel the oil to a ship at the surface.
"It's working as planned and we are very slowly increasing the rate that is coming from the riser tool up to the surface," BP senior executive vice president Kent Wells said.

You're obviously a lot younger than your picture if you believe such a thing exists, or ever has.  Crazy
