In a worrying sign for fans of a worldly media, Bassan news agencies struggled for roughly 5 hours with how to put a local spin on the recent Air Asia tragedy in Indonesia. In shamelessly exploiting this tragedy, Bassan outlets eventually singled on the fact that a second cousin of a visiting Chinese professor at Cap Haitien State University (pictured) was scheduled to be on board the return flight from Singapore to Surabaya.

The local angle was widely condemned as sensationalist by media watchdogs and politicians alike, as well as by the Bassan ambassador to Singapore and Indonesia.
