CNN’s Vital And Serious Missing Plane Analysis Continues To Be Vital And Serious And Not Dumb. And Also Awesome

This CNN panel guest is offended by the use of flippant and childish terms that, really, minimize the seriousness of the situation and imply negatives that are not yet in evidence. Saying things like ‘zombie plane’ is frankly offensive, he thinks, and lets the rest of the panel guests and the host know that he, for one, will not stoop to the level of using such childish and sensationalistic terms. This is a story about a serious incident, involving serious problems, not some silly black hole nonsense, and doggonit, it should be dealt with seriously, not played up for ratings with inflammatory language. Here is his suggestion:

“I prefer to call it a ghost plane.”


This … is CNN.

    Wait a minute. I think I detect a ‘black-hole’ here. And right above him is a ‘feminista-hole’ and next to her a ‘climate change-hole’ and below him a ‘globalist-hole’.

    Come to think of it, I guess they are ALL ‘donkey-holes’, now aren’t they.

    • stage9

      Yeah what ever happened to the good ole days when news anchors simply blamed black holes for gobbling up missing jetliners?

      Things have just really gotten bizarre in the world of news journalism these days. All of this talk about “ghost planes” is just silly.

      • Nukeman60

        I agree. And that talk about ‘zombie planes’? Real zombies wouldn’t act like this. Geesh.

        • NYGino

          Everybody knows that.

      • NYGino

        Maybe that’s what Obama meant by transparency.

        • stage9

          LOL! LOL!

            Thanks stage!

      • tvlgds

        There is very little journalism in today’s world. It’s a bunch of worthless blathering about nothing!

    • MattMusson

      Who took Flight 370? Jeff Zucker of CNN in a last ditch ratings grab.

  • NYGino

    Who you gonna call?!?! Come on now, everybody……

  • stage9


    Where is Ghostbusters or the Scooby Doo Mystery Sleuths when you need them? Maybe we should elicit some teenage Zombie killing X-Box gamers to look into this for us. Or maybe someone should call Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin to investigate if you’re REAAAAALLY serious.

    Can anyone else remember when CNN was a news channel?. I think I can.

    • NYGino

      I remember back when Sadam Hussein ruled Iraq, CNN was aware of the atrocities he was committing against his own people but would not say anything because they were afraid to lose their bureau there. it was quite embarrassing for them when that got out.

      I’m not that old ;- /

    • John Hornak

      Yep 1957 …Oh Yea,,They weren’t around..OK, I got it right! And I was waiting for Hillary to call!

  • lawngren

    No ghosts, please! My AK doesn’t affect them. Zombies I can shoot.

  • lawngren

    If any of you start seeing red-eyed Boeings, don’t tell me, OK?

    • TexasPGRRider

      Thanks TONS, lawn…What a TUNE ! ! ! The gentleman standing far right, is a young Roy Rogers….

      • lawngren

        I hadn’t noticed, but I do remember that he was one of the Sons of the Pioneers. Yep, that’s him, all right. A better kind of man from a better time.

        Goodnight. I’m off for the weekend.

    • johnfromjersey

      Thanks lawn, what memories that brings. They were my dad’s favorite, he loved cowboys.

      • lawngren

        You’re welcome. I too grew up with Roy Rogers and Hopalong Cassidy and the Lone Ranger and cap pistols and cowboy outfits as part of my childhood world. It was a privilege. Cowboys, as we knew them then, were wonderful examples of honor and courage.

  • Laurel

    CNN has jumped the shark.

  • DebbyX

    How about just a bad really bad plane!
    Where the heck did I put that plane, must be with my car keys.


    … I do not care. Cancelled CNN FOX and the rest of the lame stream media 2 years ago .”

  • Mac in Texas

    In the end it’s all about ratings and their hairdo’s. Fox is trying to be CNN 25 years ago and it’s disgusting.

  • kong1967

    That wasn’t CNN. That was a safety science professor at an aeronautics university. I personally don’t have a problem with the term “ghost plane” because it has me baffled as well and it kinda fits the fact that it vanished like a ghost.

    I still think the plane was hijacked and is on the ground in a hangar somewhere. That is, unless there’s been developments I haven’t heard. I’ve been watching NCAA basketball the last couple days.

  • tvlgds

    I just wish everybody would STFU with all the speculation and constant blathering just to fill air time. Wait for FACTS and then report them. If these yapping heads would report the important stuff, maybe there would be charges filled over Benghazi, the IRS scandals, and the things that really matter, but isn’t on the lamestream’s agenda!
