These cable networks are too much: "TERROR IN THE SKY!!!!"
MSNBC had some generic breaking-terra-news warning as their logo for this morning's coverage. No big deal.

CNN had JUST reported this COULD be tied to al-Qaeda, but that there was no direct evidence yet ... and they put "AL-QAEDA PLOT FOILED" on the screen. Hello? Journalism? Anyone heard of it? Anyone know how to practice it?

And, of course, Fox went right to "TERROR IN THE SKY!!!" (subtext: Scare the sheeples ... make them vote for Repugs in the fall! Dems can't keep us safe! Attention security-mom voters ....)

1. Meanwhile real terror continues
unabated in Iraq and Lebanon as I type and those bombs are allowed to land in airports friendly to Buscho.

3. LOL! The sequel to "Snakes on a Plane" will be "Deoderant on a Plane!"
I needed that laugh this morning. Because I'm fearing the Republicans will win in the fall because of this. Well, not because of this, but because of the CUNNING LINGUISTS on the GOP side and the stupidity of the frightened sheeples in listening to the right-wing terra slogans.

4. We were just saying the same thing. God, these guys just get led
around by the nose time after time. There has been non-stop coverage with absolutely NO information, just lots of stupid conjecture.

They are not news organizations, they are entertainment channels!

10. To quote poster Efilroft Sul on an earlier thread ... "Sheiks on a Plane."
Now, why can't the cable news networks use a nice slogan like THAT on their breaking-terra-news logo?

Guess we have to wait for Jon Stewart.

13. Terror in the Sky (1971) (Made for TV movie)
On a transcontinental flight, the flight crew suffer from food poisioning and become incapacitated. To save the aircraft, the cabin crew locate a passenger with flying experience. He is coached by an experienced pilot on the ground.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0067844 /

This looks like the basis for feature film Airplane, 1980.
