Aviation Journalism 101

Comes now this piece on the Fox Business Channel's Web site, discussing the wisdom of and policy regarding carrying a large proportion of an organization's management on one flight. This is in the aftermath of the April 10 crash outside Smolensk, Russia, which killed many top leaders in the Polish government.

Conspicuously absent from the piece is any comment from the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), the organization serving that industry segment.

The NBAA has many well-defined, suggested policies its member companies may adopt, one of which addresses carrying top management on a single airplane. Too bad FBC couldn't be bothered to to track down the industry experts for comment.

Jeb, it's Fox.

I realize that the cable nets, and well let's face it, modern news in general couldn't care less about journalism. News has to make a profit you know! It's not reporting. it's about eyeballs and ads.

Fox is more blatant about it than others.
