CNN’s Don Lemon has been entertaining all sorts of theories about the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, including the chance something “supernatural” happened, but on Wednesday night, he actually asked panelists about the possibility a black hole was involved.This would be the same Don Lemon who was obliged to wonder whether God took it, and we should not mock him, we should have sympathy for this poor man. He comes to work each morning and is given instructions like "Talk about the missing airplane until it's time to leave again. And there's probably not going to be any new news that we won't be walking back tomorrow, so be creative." He doesn't get to be anonymous about it, like some senior network executive puffing to the papers about how CNN is just nailing this whole new no-information story concept. Jeebus, the poor fellow is probably full of bourbon within the first twenty minutes of coming home each night.
Lemon brought this up along with other “conspiracy theories” people have been floating on Twitter, including people noting the eerie parallels to Lost and The Twilight Zone, and wondered, “is it preposterous” to consider a black hole as a possibility?
It's a lucky thing this story is in the CNN wheelhouse. I'd hate to see what would happen if the cable networks did not spend every available resource covering it.
