    Maybe they mentioned it so that people would know that it wasn't a terrorist attack.

    A pilot flew into an unlit crane in the early morning fog. There is no terrorist factor. Maybe she felt the need to reassure her audience, who see terrorists under every bed.

    Personally, I'd rather not see every thread turned into the same topic please. Not everything that happens in society is actually an analogy of gun control. Even trying to make such a stretch by hijacking this thread makes all the legitamite gun control threads weaker IMO.

    Yeah but was it an assault chopper?

    I don't know what you're talking about, I'm just trying to legislate away an obvious problem.

    No it was a typical overreaction by an American tv station. Its called paranoia.

    Well how would else explain it. I was watching BBC, Sky, France 24 and Al Jazerra.. not one of them mentioned terror or suspected terror or even dismissed terror.. and yet an American TV station basically leads off with that on its first coverage?

    Sorry but far far from all such incidents are terror related but it seems to be the go to explanation for American media for all acts of violence... like they are wanting it to be terror rather than an accident. That is pathetic.
