NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A spokeswoman for Sandra Bullock says the
actress wants her parts of a video promoting Gulf Coast restoration
removed until she learns whether oil companies influenced it.
The statement Thursday came after the website DeSmogBlog called
the campaign an industry push to get support for drilling and
taxpayer money to repair wetland damage caused by the BP oil spill.
Women of the Storm, a New Orleans group that produced the video,
lists America's Wetland Foundation as a partner. DeSmogBlog calls
the foundation an industry front group.
Anne Milling, founder of Women of the Storm, says she's stunned
by DeSmogBlog's charge and wants to meet with Bullock.
She says the foundation provided experts and information, but
the video was not funded by oil companies.
