The NewsTrust format and idea are interesting for the possibility of a democratically influenced news source. It provides another channel for getting news and views out to the public, a channel without a visible filter of the corporate press.

I find this good investigative journalism. It goes beyond the corporate public relations coverups and asks the people doing the work on the airplane about their experiences, the ethics of the Boeing company, and the corporate corruption of the FAA and politicians by Boeing.

The video on the aljazeera site was broken, unless I started at about 7 minutes. The utube version played without a problem. I personally know a couple people in the interviews.

So much for the war hawk lady's cred on the environment and global climate change. She acts like a neocon oil tycoon bent on this year's economic performance bonus.

Excellent, and should be accompanied by an article on foreign powers buying candidates in elections with undisclosed unlimited contributions as authorized by our activist supine court.
