Female reporter; “The SOUND BARRIER, isn’t that really fast? Why were the pilots flying that fast on landing?”
Hired for their looks, TV reporters, especially female, are useless.

Exactly! Now consider this, imagine all the issues that are fed to us on a daily basis that we're not as educated about as aviation! The best thing to do with the news is find out what happened (More or less) period. Details will rarely be accurate, unbiased, unspun, or just blatantly mis-reported.
Very true. We can laugh at the misinformation about topics we know about, but we often don't know enough to understand the misinformation about other topics. For example, Doctors will tell you most mainstream medical news is incorrect, most studies are skewed and twisted by the media to fit an agenda and it is doubtful that many newspeople read the studies they report on, or understand them if they do, since they had no training in medicine, statistics, etc.

Especially hard when hearing that the only fatality so far was a boy. Just horrible.

Either way, a loss of life that young in an incident such as this is just tragic.
Any innocent loss of life is tragic! Would it be less tragic if a widowed father of four was killed, orphaning 4 children? Of course not.
