BP: Reports of Top Kill Success 'Premature'

NPR is now reporting in detail that earlier claims in the Wall Street Journal and elsewhere that the 'Top Kill' had worked simply are not true. BP spokesman Tom Mueller "discounted" the reports, NPR claims, saying:
"We appreciate the optimism, but the top kill operation is continuing through the day today — that hasn't changed," he said Thursday morning. "We don't anticipate being able to say anything definitive on that until later today."
We expect to see a correction in the Wall Street Journal just as soon as sell-side brokers close their morning trades and the New York Stock Casino closes.
