Heartening Media News
I was listening to LA's John and Ken radio show last night (yeah, yeah, they're fucking dorks but they occasionally get things right). They were discussing the JetBlue airliner that had to make the emergency landing at LAX on Wednesday. They said that they heard that when the plane was in the air, the passengers were watching Fox News about the emergency but didn't take it seriously because it was Fox News. They didn't start panicking until they heard the same thing on MSNBC. John and Ken attributed it to Fox News' sensational approach to the news. I attribute it to the fact that Fox News is a political operation--run by a ratfucking hack--posing as a news network and this cross-section of the American public wasn't buying.
