I live in the SF/Oakland Bay Area. I heard about and was checking for updates on the crash 5-10 minutes after it happened. You know who had the first info on the crash?

Not CNN. Not Fox. Not MSNBC or NBC. Not CBS, ABC...none of them. 20 minutes after the crash both CNN and Fox had yet to even report that it had happened.

IGN and ESPN. Of all the fucking sources in the world, a video game network and a sports network were posting updates on the crash first.

W.T.F....

And yeah..wow. When I first saw the pictures of the plane that David Eun posted on his twitter feed I was amazed that the death toll was so low. When KTVU (local network) finally got an airborne camera zoomed in on the crash site, I was even more startled. Terrible thing to happen, but it could have been so much worse.
