Airline Crash

From: "Kazuhisa Kuriyama" To: "Elena Amezquita"

Hello Elena. Kazu here.
My topic is an airplane crash.
TWA flight 800, carrying 230 people, exploded when it was flying on July 17, 1997. A few days later, Tonice Sgrignori, a New York Post reporter was arrested because she pretended to be a relative of victims and got information from the relatives gathering in Ramada Plaza Hotel. This caused controversy. A journalist should be sensitive to seeking or using interviews of those affected by tragedy or grief.
That's all.
See you in the class.
