Information Overload

I'd say there is such a thing as too much information; for example, letting airline passengers watch the fate of their crippled jetliner discussed on live TV news while they circle the airport as the pilots attempt to correct it and burn off fuel. Mercifully the feed was shut off (though probably as the SOP ending of in flight entertainment prior to landing) before the successful emergency landing. I expect new in-flight cabin procedures to be discussed in the next meeting today!

UPDATE: Guess I was wrong!
