Qantas bulletin features plane crash

Nine News appears to have softened its controversial no plane crash policy for its 5am, Qantas-sponsored news bulletin.  

The network came under fire this year after it censored the story of last month’s Air France disaster because the bulletin is also replayed on Qantas flights.

At the time a spokesman for Nine told Mumbrella: “We never report news involving plane incidents on Qantas inflight news bulletins.”

But this morning’s bulletin prominently featured the story of yesterday’s light plane crash in Broome. The plane was wrecked in the crash landing but all five people on board survived.

Mumbrella has requested a comment from Nine.
