Please read headlines with a grain of salt: Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crashes in Ukraine near Russia

Very sad news from Eastern Europe.  A Malaysia Airlines 777 with 280 passengers and 15 crew has crashed in Ukraine.

In the days ahead, you will see lots of speculation about what caused the crash, especially with the military actions in the area.  Like I mentioned in my post about the near-miss, headlines are about grabbing attention and page views, a lot of media has transformed into “newsertainment” in recent years.

The best thing we can do right now is keep those aboard the plane (and their families on the ground) in our thoughts and prayers.  The truth will eventually come out about what happened, but rampant speculation in times like this doesn’t help anyone.

 

Best,
Andy
