Difficult to Assess Oil's Impact on the Coast

I have the impression from bits I've seen on Twitter and elsewhere that we are not getting the full story about the oil spill and its impact along Mississippi's coast. I keep hearing about BP and law enforcement keeping citizens away from affected areas and controlling the flow of information out of the area. It sounds like the chemical dispersants BP has been using may end up doing damage that will be harder to detect. Are those of you who live down there hearing anything different?
