President Obama and Beverly Eckert, Victim of 9/11 and the Buffalo Plane Crash

In an official White House photo by Pete Souza, President Obama shakes hands with Beverly Eckert on Feb. 6, 2009, during a meeting in Washington, D.C., at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building with a group who lost family members in the 9/11 and the U.S.S. Cole tragedies. Eckert lost her husband Sean Rooney on 9/11 , and she was killed last night in the plane crash near Buffalo, NY. Some journalists reporting her tragic story  have stated that the only comfort for the family is that the two are now together in another place. Today's discussion point: Do you think that's the kind of thing reporters should declare as fact? Politely please. -- jpt
