""They fall beneath the liberal radar because they’re simply seafarers waiting to go home."Compare the treatment of the Cosco Busan crew to the reaction when the crew of ExcelAir was held in Brazil after a mid-air collision with Gol Transporte Aereos flight 1907 which went down resulting in the deaths of 137 people. The pilot and co-pilot were held for two months. Several articles from Newsday here. In particular the article Leaders press for Brazil pilots' release byAudrey Dutton of Newsday.
Only media coverage of the ship crew seems to be Mercury News article here.
Is the crew of the Cosco Busan being treated fairly and justly?
