The Ticker (Flight 3407 edition): O’Brien, Brokaw, Citizens…

> Former CNN science correspondent Miles O’Brien breaks down what happened with the flight on his blog. “Keep this in mind as you watch the often inaccurate, nonsensical, irrelevant coverage of the crash of Continental 3407,” he writes early in the post.

> Tom Brokaw profiles 9/11 widow Beverly Eckert, who was killed in the Flight 3407 crash, on tonight’s NBC Nightly News. Brokaw had known Eckert since just after September 11 as he interviewed her about her advocacy for 9/11 victims’ families.

> WebNewser writes about the first reporters on the ground covering the crash — citizen journalists. The cabler coverage included iReports, YouTube, Skype and more.
