Passenger died after being denyed Oxygen by airline

This was the headline and the story went on to say that a lady died while flying on a plane and complained of chest pains and the airline refused to give her Oxygen. The implication is that the Airlines is this big bad company more concerned with profit than the consumer. For two days this was all I heard about the incident. On the Oreily Factor and the follow up section he talked to an invesgative reported who contacted the airline to get their side of the story. It was very interesting. It seems that the lady had a heart attack and there was a Doctor on board who treated her. The airline personal followed the Dr instructions and provided everything he asked for including a defibralator which would only work if there were no heart beat(a safety measure). This seems to be another case of tell the story any way to get a rating even if it means twisting the story so that it will sell. It make one question anything the major media puts out. Are the major media outlets trying to report the news or create the news. The John McCain story, the Picture of Brach Obama, the drug dealing Brach Obama are examples of receint stories. Is the media being irresponsible in their reporting when they do not give us all the facts of a story?
