CNN video highlights ridiculous coverage of Flight 370

by Greg Belfrage

The credibility of the mainstream media eroded even further this week.

During a guest panel on missing Malaysia Flight 370, CNN's Don Lemon read several tweets he had received from CNN viewers.

The tweets suggested suggested the plane's disappearance could be the result of a "black hole," Bermuda Triangle or something you'd expect from television's "Lost". 

Lemon went on to say we've seen similar things on "The Twilight Zone" and mentioned the "supernatural".

He turned to Mary Schiavo, former inspector general of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and said, "I know it's preposterous, but is it preposterous, do you think, Mary?"

Schiavo's response is classic.

Hey Don, not everyone with a Twitter account is worth quoting! You don't need to be a genius to open a Twitter account.

It appears you don't need to be a genius to be hired as an anchor at CNN, either.
