I heard she had an aneyrusm on NBC. I think they said she was in critical condition, but I cant be sure. There was also a terrible crash on the runway in Madrid and 150 people were killed. It has been a bad news day. I hope it gets better later on. It needs to get better.

msnbc is usually great but i guess they just got too much in a hurry and hit the button before they knew for sure.. i just wish we would have a few good days.. but i guess thats impossible

So irresponsible....an incident like this happened in India too last week, where in one of the channels, they flashed that it was the 61st Independence Day India was celebrating and the other one showed that India was celebrating its 62nd Independence Day...its such an important day, but see their knowledge
