There is a plane with two blown tires up in the air, circling a Texas airport. The local news picked up on it, started broadcasting, then went to national.

National news is now reporting about the fact that gas is more expensive in Britain (not new), we are underprepared for a possible bird flu outbreak (not new), and there are still questions about the handling of the mine disaster in which twelve men dies a few months back (categorically not new). Not one mention of the BROKEN PLANE THAT'S ABOUT TO MAKE AN EMERGENCY LANDING.

This? Is why I hate TV news.

ETA: Holy shit, that was a beautiful landing. The next time they want pilots to take a pay cut, this footage and the footage from the Jet Blue landing out in LA a few months ago need to be hauled out.
