Turbulence on a Continental Airlines flight from Ohio to New York battered around passengers and crew, injuring four

No one ever says it was operated by an outsourcing contractor, not Continental Airlines

No doubt a former Gulfstream Int pilot was at the controls. Remember reduce speed to VA when in turbulence!

You mean severe turbulence,,riiight?? There is NO reason to slow down in light to moderate... maybe moderate at times, but for sure not light chop/turbulence.

It was a crappy day in upstate on Saturday.
My staked jap maple went down, got tossed destroyed and littered across six yards. Lost power for hours.
On the upside I got caught up on my Tim Conway Jr. Show Podcasts. What The Hell Did Jesse Jackson Say? is the best hour of radio you will hear this side of the Mississippi.

No they don't, but they should.

Agreed.

I guess my point was it's another case of sloppy journalism. In the wake of the colgan crash I thought news outlets would pay more attention to who is actually operating the flight. It took me a whopping 30 seconds of searching the Internet to figure it out.

It's been over a year, and ticket prices dropped 3 dollars so they decided outsourcing isnt' so bad after all.

Just think of it as "info-tainment." It's hard to get an emotional reaction when they have all the facts. There's very little real journalism practiced anymore, it just doesn't sell.
