Watch CBS News Videos Online

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ yesterday, where he told Bob Schieffer in regards to the Gulf Coast oil spill:

There’s no doubt that we have had some problems with BP’s lack of transparency: We asked that a video feed be made public, and that took 10 days. We have sent letter recently in order to get them to post their air-and-quality data.

Schieffer also asked the oft-repeated question, “Is this your administration’s Katrina?”

“I think the difference in this case, is we were there immediately,” said Gibbs.

The “CBS Evening News” with Katie Couric and “ABC World News” with Diane Sawyer both do their shows from the Louisiana coast tonight.
