Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 update: MSNBC blasts CNN and Fox News coverage

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, and the 227 passengers and 12 crew members aboard, are still missing. The search continues for the plane, which took off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8. It has been two weeks, and the only credible information that may give clues to the whereabouts of the missing plane came from satellite images. After a second day of searching an area in the southern Indian Ocean — where the satellite showed two possible objects of debris — nothing has yet been found.

Of course the lack of information regarding the flight hasn’t stopped outlets like CNN and Fox News from spending an inordinate amount of time reporting on the tragedy. It is disaster porn in the form of conspiracy theories. Rather than focusing on closure for grieving families, the search has taken on Hollywood-like proportions.
