Dude, that article is from July of 2010. The damage done to the coastline and natural environment takes longer than three months. Or, think of it this way: It was capped ten days before this article. 53,000 barrels of oil gushed out TEN DAYS before this was written (and that's in one day). There's no way that the damage could have been assessed by July 29, 2010.
I don't think the damage has been as bad as feared, but it's nowhere near as minor as this guy was clearly trying to purport it to be.
