Just glancing at Google News, I noticed that the top headlines in both the main headline column and the side, narrower column, are about Circuit City. And apparently, they don't have anything to do with each other. The bigger headline
is about a plane crash in Colorado, with no survivors. The plane seems to have been owned or registered by Circuit City, and had some employees on board, but no "company officers." I guess they have to say that to forestall a stock panic.
Something they might be worried about now, since the smaller headline
is about a $3.25 Billion takeover bid. I hadn't realized that public companies could go private.
I wonder if it's really just pure coincidence or if financial websites were keyed up to look for Circuit City news by the smaller headline, leading to prominent linking to the crash story, leading to Google's newsbot bumping up both.
