Is Top Kill Failing to Stop Oil Leak?

Update: WOW! That didn't take long. Shortly after I posted this, the story was updated to say it's official: Top Kill Method Has Failed.

Local television stations like WWL TV and nation news outlets, such as CNN, report that the "top kill" method is not stopping the flow of oil from the BP/Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

According to WWL TV, BP chief operating officer Doug Suttles says the company is considering other ways to stop the well. It's video includes a question and answer session.

CNN confirms, but also says top kill seems to be making a difference of some type. Suttles said the ratio of oil to gas appears to have changed.
