The Media's So Called Aviation Experts

Wed Nov 14, 2001 10:33 am

Hey All!!

One thing that makes me sick is how the media handles Aviation related issues! Any one agree with me I saw a post earlier about this and just wanted to get some more input.

Thanks

PAUL

Thank you Saab! I was going to make a topic about this. It pisses me off how these news agencies try to pass off thise bumbling idiots as 'experts'. All they do is speculate and cause undue anxiety and fear among the flying public.

I agree. Hong Kong TV listed a whole list of Airbus crashes and every single one was due to human error......of course they neglected to mention that. Now I have friends all asking me whether I fly Airbuses and whether Cathay has any. It's very irresponsible reporting and pisses me off.

They grab anyone who is related to the airline industry and put them on expecting them to know everything about A300s, maintenance and engineering issues.

"Here we have Mr. Smith, who has worked cleaning A300 toilets for 20 years..." yeah, great. Idiots.

I've always thought Robert Hager of NBC has handled aviation issues pretty well.

He is probably the best of the lot.
