CNN and San Fran plane crash

Okay I know its a terrible tragedy that 2 students were killed in that plane crash.'
Does anyone know of a train derailment in Quebec where 5 people were incinerated with 40 still missing when the tanker car exploded?
That happened the same day.
i guess trains arent as commercially viable as a triple 7 to CNN.

sadly i think the number will be going up in Quebec, what a horrible accident. i don't expect the US news to cover stories in Canada, it's irrelevant to them.

It may be irrelevant to our scumbag media, but not to this American. Thanks for posting that, and our prayers go out to all effected by this tragedy. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ.

I was actually thinking the very same thing this morning. I lost all respect for the field of journalism years ago. It's not just CNN, either.

If somebody suggested the train explosion was possibly caused by "terrorism," they'd be all over it.

Hang tight - that will be suggested soon.

This just out: " The chairman of the company whose train exploded in downtown Lac-Mégantic says he is certain it was tampered with."

Greenpeace is already saying we shouldn't be transporting crude oil by rail. Wonder what fuels their cars and boats?

Sorry I'm running kinda late on this, but I need to respond. I am positively NOT offended. Our sorry ass news media has hit rock bottom in whatever was considered journalistic professionalism. To the news media, I say- to my northern friends, my most cheerful
