Episode Summary

EDIT
Wall-to-Wall Plane Crash
AIRED:
New partners Julian and Mel witness a commuter jet crash in Washington, and become rescuers first, reporters later. I24 brings in retired NTSB investigator Donald Simms to explain what might have gone wrong. Ethan is made Jamie's new producer. Bill has a fit when Peter devotes nonstop coverage to the crash, at the expense of his interview with a congresswoman. Julian and Mel discover a home video amongst the wreckage, and uplink it to the newsroom. Jamie isn't truthful with Julian about the new pairings. Peter makes Jamie interview Mel the hero, while Julian goes to the hospital to play the tape to the survivor, Robert Jenkins (who happens to be the man they saved), whose family seen on it were killed. Janet's conscience is torn when, in hopes of a good scoop, she misleads a woman who may have lost a loved one on the crash into believing she might have too. The congresswoman throws a tantrum during her interview, because the airline I24 is pointing the finger at is in her district. With the team's help, the NTSB confirms that the crash was caused by banned pressurized air canisters that exploded upon takeoff. Robert Jenkins repays Julian by suing him for having the tape aired. Meanwhile, I24 has problems with their phone lines.moreless
