Check the time stamps on the news feeds. Faux News was the first to run with the INTERFAX story. Not Reuters. Stop trying to pass the buck. If you have a Reuters report issued prior to the Fox Report provide it. Tick Tock
Fox News, July 17, 2014, 10:07 am; updated at 2:45 pm MDT:
"Interfax reported Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashenko said 23 of those are Americans."
Reuters, July 17, 2014, 7:48 pm EDT:
"U.S. President Barack Obama said it was unclear whether Americans were aboard. A Ukrainian official said there were 23."
Note: "The Boeing 777...crashed near the Russian border about 4:30 p.m. local time (9:30 a.m. EDT) after it was shot down by a powerful Russian Buk rocket, an adviser to Ukraine’s interior minister said."
guess it all depends on the quality of the news sources you use....
