Talk:45 feared dead in Pakistan air crash
- please use clear and direct headlines, without unduly sensationalising the event.
- be conservative in reporting deaths, relying only on trustworthy sources and attributing and citing that source fully.
- try and report who said what when, so as to let readers know whose information is the latest or reliable. (i know, this is not easy, but it is our job.)

When its says Reuters, is it trying to say reporters?
Reuters is a world-wide news service, they are cited at the bottom of the article.
How can they be "feared" dead when they are already confirmed to be dead? ~ clearthought 02:23, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
- they were feared dead when it ws written. as commented above, it's important to not state that they are "confirmed" dead, until someone authoritative makes a formal announcement that they are. while a/the "police chief" made a statement, i didn't think it served the purpose, as the rank and other datails of this chief were not available (so far as i knew), and it had the look of a drive-by quote to the media. also, the airline authorities (presumably the ones qualified to make a casualities announcement) had stated that they had no info. in short; this article needs to be updated.

- OK, I was just wondering; thanks for letting me know. ~ clearthought 16:37, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
