Highly unlikely?

My Chinese friend who lives in the same province as the tragic tour cruise-liner capsize on the Yantchee River

says that the chance of a tornado or any other storm flipping the ship is highly unlikely.

If so, then isn’t it interesting that virtually ALL the news media, Chinese and otherwise are letting the captain and perhaps others (not the Sewol Ferry horror in Korea) are letting him of the hook…even the Chinese meteorological Commission says there was an unexpected storm there.  Oh to be a WORKING journalist on the ground in the towns near that shoreline.  I mean there has to be some way to verify this.

As usual, reading, looking at or I-phoning the news on this will not clear it up.  This is the golden age of propaganda, for sure.
