    Just take the unexamined government news feed and run with the story.

    Well that looks like a teleprompter error.
    Shouldn’t it say News Scarce in Search for Clues?

    I think it’s a commentary on the US news industry in general rather than specifically the missing plane search. Since the advent of the 24-hour news cycle, networks tend to latch on to a major story milk it for all it’s worth rather than developing worth while stories through investigative journalism.

    Perhaps they need the help of a Chinese or British satellite company.

    Maybe they should just take Don Henley’s advice (Dirty Laundry)….

    The scary thing is the stuff used as filler that is now taken as relevant news that actually has import rather than being the commercial tripe that it is. The search for flight 370 is just an unfortunate example of what happens with all news – we have airtime to fill and fill it we will.

    Turn off the TV. – I sat through the news report of a multiple car jacking in Denver while having my car serviced; waiting room TV. They had maybe 3-4 minutes of facts and kept repeating them, making comments, and trying to make new comments. It was very sad and became incredibly boring.

    What? Justin got TWO of the Kardashians pregnant? At the same time?
    Wow, where can I find more on this breaking news?

    What’s really scary is that The Comedy Channel is now a news source…

    There is a real dearth of serious, on-site journalists out there, digging for the truth. Instead, it’s more cost-effective to mine the ‘nets for sensational gossip, political faux-pas, or personal tragedies (“If It Bleeds, It Leads”) – and then beam the king-crap stories from opulent, electronics-oriented studio sets crewed by busty bubble-headed bleach blondes who can tell you ’bout that plane crash with a gleam in her eye (and a nod to Don Henley).
    .
    Then again, I’m just as guilty – I like to ogle Robin Meade in the morning before work, and am fascinated with Dagmar Midcap telling me all about the weather in the late afternoon (never much of a weather change ’round here, but she makes the most intricate and sensuous gestures, outlining the marine layer, off-shore winds, high surf conditions…).

    It looks like Bill O’Reilly was correct ten days ago about what happened to the jet.

    “I listen to the BBC on Sirius and am SO ashamed of our “news””

    I’m with you, Joadtom. I also watch Al Jazeera. The breadth and depth of the news that either one of the aforementioned organizations far exceeds the combined coverage of our domestic news.

    So, mike, the foreign propaganda is way better than the domestic propaganda is it?

    :D

    “So, mike, the foreign propaganda is way better than the domestic propaganda is it?”

    propaganda

    1. information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.
    2. the deliberate spreading of such information, rumors, etc.
    3. the particular doctrines or principles propagated by an organization or movement.

    No, Enoki. It is the much greater lack of propaganda in their news casts than is in our domestic news casts.
