And it is a known fact that the peanuts served on Malaysian airline flights causes flatulence.
[rant]This is about as desperate as the news media's attempts to fill dead air has become. I can't begin to imagine the pain and anguish felt by the friends and families of the missing crew and passengers, and I know they are hungry for any information. But their is something almost mercenary about the meaningless noise being substituted for news that's got to be even crueler.
Friday night Rachel Maddow made what, IMHO, was the most profoundly compassionate and honest statement I've heard yet regarding this tragedy. She said (paraphrasing), The latest news about the missing Malaysian airplane is that there is no new news.
The media needs to respectfully and responsibly back off this story and tell their audiences that they will report verified developments only as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you talking heads go suck on a cup of coffee.[/rant]
I agree. I'm already tired of every spec on a satellite image being called "a potential piece of plane wreckage" only to turn out to be a boat, tree limb, floating garbage, or a finger smudge on the screen of the viewer.

HLN is just as bad. Over & over they keep showing videos of the relatives screaming, falling out, fainting, some fighting & crying over this "breaking news." I guess I can forget about watching the Oscar Pistorius trial.
