Politico deputy editor Blake Hounshell is of the opinion that the private plane crash that happened in Aspen today doesn’t constitute a national news story.

@blakehounshell people live tweeting it, especially celebs, isn't commonplace.

@blakehounshell Aspen is a hub for rich people and celebrities. Plus, slow news day.

Would news outlets such as, say, Politico, have considered the crash to be national news if it had occurred at a D.C. airport?
