Aviation News Reporting

This is more of a media rant, I'm afraid. Think about this: This is an industry that we know something about. We read the papers, hear the radio reports, and see the stuff on TV. And we all look at it and know how bad the "facts" are.

What about all those other news items out there. The ones we don't know much about. We count on the same newspapers and TV news shows to present us with the "facts" about these other categories. Just how far out to lunch are these people on other stories? And we tend to believe them. Who are the real fools here?

Oh, and Happy Independence Day to my US readers!
