news and media in general will trivialize anything to make ratings. It is not really news-gathering anymore, rather it is entertainment. That clip with the Windows sound, it is silly and gathers attention, which is all they want so they can garner some ratings. What makes it even worse is how the reporters are completely scripted so everything they say pertaining to this is totally off-the-cuff and automatic.
"Two people died while on approach into MEM
but this isn't effecting NW
's operations at all so this will not even be a MINOR INCONVENIENCE to you." We wouldn't want an airplane crash to inconvenience people in an airport in any way now...
That and the media is biased towards the business world. That is why they did not focus on the plane crash itself but how it would effect NW
's operations in MEM
that day. What is ironic is that news media in itself is fairly liberal but they know who runs them and pays the bills...
