I was looking around about news regarding the Frontier/Midwest branding announcement and ran across this video:

ACCOMPANYING ARTICLE - http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/90713279.html

At about 1:20 you can see the reporter sitting at her desk with A.net on the computer screen right behind her.

Just thought this was something interesting to point out.

Hum, interesting... although I can tell you as a journalist there are two occasions off the top of my head that I saw something on here, made a few phone calls, got it confirmed and went with it. As far as why a.net shows up in the background of the reporter's "stand up" (tv term for when you see a reporter in the middle of a story), there is a certain member of this board I would love to hear from on that... he knows who he is.

Wow, that's a good catch!

It wouldn't be unreasonable to think that news agencies use A.net for various reasons. From photography to rumors. Nothing can really be confirmed on this site, but it's a good resource for aviation.

BTW, I've seen A.net pics or even airliners.net itself referenced on almost every major news source. The frenzy started right after 9/11. As much as I hate to say this, this site's dollar value had to have increased immensely after 9/11.
