A little context, please.posted by The Vidiot @ 9:30 AM Permalink The media is going on and on about how BIG the fine against BP is for their LAST massive accident is. "$50 million!" they're all saying, at the top of their lungs.
However, BPs profits last year totaled $14 Billion. That makes that fine somewhere in the neighborhood of, oh, .35% of their PROFITS. That's one-third of one percent!
