The media all had different stories from all surviving to no one surviving. One newspaper the Evening Sun said "all passengers survived and got on life boats. Another thing said over ship radios, " The Titanic Is being towed in and has most Passengers alive."One of the reasons it was such a surprise is because they based the idea that it was unsinkable.The Titanic Radio message ended up all over the world because the ships kept on sending kept on sending the message to get help. So the summary of the medias reaction was not the same and not all were very accurate.
