The Jami Turman Fan Club: Mr. Oizo: I'm glad all other issues in America and around the world have been resolved to allow CNN to provide this 24/7 perpetual breaking news coverage of the missing plane.  If they don't find the plane by November, CNN won't have to spend any effort covering the mid-term elections because -- missing plane.

I don't get it.  A plane has an electrical fire, crashes into the Pacific.  Why is this front page news?


I presume CNN has news editors who are looking at everything going in the US and around the world and deciding that none of it is as important as the missing plane with 3 Americans on board (as well as 2 Canadians.)

Venezuela and Turkey consumed by riots?  No need to cover that.  California State Senator arrested for trying to run weapons (including rocket launchers) to Islamic rebels?  Nope.  Russia massing nearly 100,000 troops on the Ukraine border in areas far from Crimea as well as raise natural gas prices by 80%?  Who cares.  Obamacare deadlines coming up on March 31? Crickets.  Syria? North Korea? Iran?  Whatever.  Rand Paul signing up 10 million volunteers for his 2016 campaign?  Nothing.

I made the last one up to see if anyone is paying attention.

Because we don't know exactly where it crashed, and wild bullshiat conspiracy theories make for good ratings.

/Man, can you imagine if modern CNN was around when Amelia Earhart crashed? Or during the height of the 'Bermuda Triangle' bullshiat?

Anyone's high school newspaper is more professional than these fools.

As much grief as Fox gets for the way they slant the news, CNN gives people no reason to watch the station. They're pathetic. CNN has been covering this nonstop like it's the biggest event since 9/11. CNN must be proud of itself to try gaining ratings by exploiting people who died in a plane crash.
