CNN’s Ratings Surge Covering the Mystery of the Missing Airliner – NYTimes.com

On CNN, the plane rises from misty clouds accompanied by an eerie background score while anchors offer intriguing details — some new, some days old — of the disappearance of Flight 370. The reports, broadcast continually, often are augmented by speculation — sometimes fevered, sometimes tempered — about where the flight might have come to rest. And viewers are eating it up.

The story of the vanished Boeing 777 jet has been exhaustively covered across every form of news media, with television generally leading the way. Each of the broadcast networks began its evening newscast with stories on the plane every night last week, a consensus that happens “once a year at most,” according to Andrew Tyndall, who publishes a weekly report monitoring newscasts.

But it is CNN, the cable network that has been scrambling to find a sustainable business model against its main competitors, Fox News and MSNBC, that has perhaps invested most heavily in the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

It’s comforting to know that in this day and age something as big as a Boeing 777 can disappear without a trace. It gives me such hope for my own plans.

The song Hungry Heart used to be just a song for me, now it’s a game plan. You know the line. “Got a wife in kids in Baltimore Jack, I went out for a ride and I never came back”. I take it to heart now.  It’s important to have Plan B tucked away for a rainy day. It keeps you sane and gives you hope in the dark times. These are some dark times.

But I don’t have any hope of finding these poor passengers alive on an island eating coconuts  with a volley ball friend. My fear is that they are sleeping with the fishes and it’s only a matter of time before someone finds a floating seat cushion.

I’d like to think that they were all abducted by a UFO. I’d actually love to hear that. All those years of watching UFO shows with nothing to show for it would be repaid in spades. I’m pulling for the UFO scenario. And if the plane is never found, then this is story I am going to believe.

It’s interesting to watch the news coverage of this event. There is no news and yet these champs can talk 24 X 7 about this missing plane. These jokers at CNN have some really wonderful special effects. I saw one segment where a guy was standing on what must have been a green screen. He was moving the virtual plane around with his hands. He was standing on an ocean and flying the plane with his fingers.  I am glad I wasn’t tripping or I’d have been hospitalized forever. I wonder if Syd Barrett saw men moving planes with their fingers. The virtual news has sure come a long way.

I’m just glad the NCAA tournament is starting up. It’ll take some of the heat off of this story.

    There’s one question the media has never asked. They’ve never stuck a microphone under the nose of the Australian AIr Force and asked, “Didn’t your multi-Billion Dollar, Jindalee, over-the-horizon radar that can track the Vietnamese fishing fleet setting sail from port, track the 260 foot wide metal plane buzzing in front of your nose?”

    If they say, “No, we couldn’t” then that is;

    a. a fcking lie, and
    b. a hugely embarrassing thing to say

    If they say, “yes, we did”, then why the fck don’t they reveal where it crashed?

    The media, therefore, will never ask this question to avoid putting the military in a tight spot and make viewers uncomfortable with the ugly truth.

    Now back to our special news report about dangerous road cones on the Mitchell Freeway… over to you, Bob…
