On a commercial flight from New York to Las Vegas, a hijacking attempt was discovered while the plane was in flight. However, due to fast acting flight attendants, the hijacker was discovered and seized before any damage could be done, and the plane proceeded to Las Vegas. Upon the plane’s arrival, television stations had cameras at the gate, and began reporting on the incident, showing television clips of the passengers disembarking safely. One such passenger was supposed to be in Detroit at a professional conference, paid for by her company, and not in Las Vegas. Her boss saw her on various news channels, and as a result she was fired and suffered great embarrassment.
If the passenger asserts a claim against the television stations for using her picture as she disembarked, is she likely to prevail?
