"Investigative Reporters" have been cast as idiots at best and villains at worst since the heady days of "Woodstein."

If you don't count Absence of Malice, True Crime, The Parallax View, Year of Living Dangerously, Killing Fields, Good Night and Good Luck, State of Play, Live From Baghdad, and a few dozen more...

The episode to me seemed more convenient than anything. Justin just happens to find the podcast, and all of the passengers decide to kill him. How would they know Joe caused the crash? Yeah, he was acting nutty, but they don't know how Joe got into the cockpit? And why did the keypad combination just happen to be the flight number? That's not much smarter than using 1-2-3 as your suitcase lock #. Plus the podcaster says that all of the passengers survived except Justin. So... where was Joe? People saw him on the flight deck camera killing the flight crew. He was a passenger. Why did they let him survive? What are the odds of every passenger living? Why doesn't anyone else listen to the podcast? The air marshal? The captain? Either of the flight attendants? Are they all afraid of getting lice?

"Investigative Reporters" have been cast as idiots at best and villains at worst since the heady days of "Woodstein." Still, it's difficult to sort the ordinary folk from the apparently-calm maniac. Get it right and tragedy is averted; get it wrong and the world comes collapses on you. Always pay close attention to what people say just before they "make a little magic" of their own.
