New Underwater footage of BP oil leak at the source

Gulf of Mexico. It's interesting. Exxon is still tainted in our minds from the Valdez spill in Alaska in '89.  
But from my reading, Exxon is now actually the safest oil company out there with fewer spills and accidents 
than any other.  That's because after the Valdez disaster they stopped scrimping on safety spending.  
BP on the other hand... BP spends the most money on advertising to convince us that they are 
actually "green" and environmentally friendly, yet they have one of the worst 
records for spills in the last decade or so. Why? Because they don't spend money on 
safety precautions. I'll see if I can find the article in which this was discussed.
