Yeah, But That's Different....

According to Mumbrella, Channel Nine morning news chose not to report on the Air France mid-air explosion because the same news bulletin was going to be shown on Qantas flights :
A spokesman for Nine sent a brief email to Mumbrella saying: “We never report news involving plane incidents on Qantas inflight news bulletins.”
And yet they have no problem showing terrifying footage of house fires on the evening news to an audience primarily sitting around in houses.
