Nobody said Clay was as famous as Justin. (However, Justin was with 'NSync a lot longer than Clay was on AI.) And nobody has suggested that AI should not be mentioned at all in a story like this. I just said it shows bias when a "news story" like this contains redundant mentions of AI and Clay's runner-up status 4 years ago yet neglects to mention that he was on the flight to Tulsa as part of a current concert tour (that night, in fact).Originally Posted by lei;2468713;
Sorry, but when the headline misleads so as to suggest that Clay either picked a fight with someone, was raging out of control ("air rage"), or in some way physically ("fist fight") assaulted a fellow passenger, I say it's irreponsible.

From reports I've read that stated the known specifics (that it started with Clay's foot at least touching a woman passenger's arm rest, that she "may have" given him a "minor shove," that no one was hurt or arrested), I'm not even sure the dispute/argument between the two was necessarily "loud" or even very "angry" -- at least not on Clay's part. Maybe "loud, angry dispute" is accurate, but I can't conclude that from what details seem to be known.
