Six people, tragically lost their lives in a deadly helicopter crash in California’s Mojave Desert. Now, let’s get one thing straight, this is a devastating event and our hearts go out to the families of those involved. But leave it to ABC7 to focus on a couple of individuals from Nigeria. Seriously, ABC? You couldn’t find any American heroes to highlight? This is just another example of the media’s obsession with anything international.
The CEO of a Nigerian bank, Herbert Wigwe, and some former chair of some Nigerian stock exchange were among the victims. So, not only does this tragedy involve international figures that most Americans probably have never heard of, but ABC7 also feels the need to remind us that these individuals were “recognized as a leader in Nigeria’s banking industry.” Why should we care about that? Are we now expected to mourn for the leaders of foreign banking systems too? It’s absurd!

The crash happened near the California-Nevada border, about 80 miles from Las Vegas. Now, Las Vegas is a place known for its bright lights and non-stop entertainment, but this crash certainly didn’t bring any joy. It’s a reminder that life can be snuffed out in an instant, even in the midst of all the glitz and glamour.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are investigating the accident. But here’s the kicker, folks – the helicopter didn’t have a cockpit voice recorder or a flight data recorder. How is that even possible? How can we properly investigate and prevent future accidents if we don’t have all the facts? It’s concerning to say the least.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, ABC7 throws in another helicopter crash from last Tuesday. Five US Marines lost their lives in that one. But wait, didn’t they just mention that the crash we’re talking about happened in the Mojave Desert? Last time I checked, San Diego is nowhere near the desert. It’s almost as if ABC7 is trying to squeeze every bit of helicopter-related tragedy into one article to maximize the emotional impact. Well, we see right through you, ABC!
In conclusion, this is a terrible loss of life, but the media’s focus on foreign figures and their obsession with sensationalizing tragic events is just proof of their bias. We need to focus on improving safety standards and making sure that accidents like this don’t happen again. It’s time for the media to stop exploiting tragedies and start reporting the news fairly and accurately.
