    Not only should they use "spell Check" WRAL should take the time to find out what the emergency was, how many were on the plane, were they emergency evacuated, any injuries, original destination, just little items that differentiate rumor from news.

    I think WRAL should get an "emergency" dictionary.

    Spelling it seems, is not a strong point here.
