9/11/06: A Plane Has Hit The WTC…

This must-read THR story recalls television news coverage of 9/11/01. An excerpt:

scottsept11.jpg“Fox News Channel’s Jon Scott was about to begin his 9 a.m. shift when he was told to run to the studio. He arrived to find out that a plane had hit the trade center.

‘I thought it was an accident, as incredible as that may seem now,’ says Scott, who is a pilot and aviation enthusiast. ‘It should have hit me right away that, OK, they didn’t bring the towers down in ’93 so they were going to try it again from the air.’ On the air, Scott was talking to an expert at 9:03 a.m. when United Airlines Flight 175 smashed into the South Tower.”
