What Became of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

Friday, March 14, 2014


From terrorism to catastrophic structural failure to alien tractor beams, theories on the vanishing jetliner have come fast and furious. And one after another, they have themselves disappeared into nothingness. Bob reflects on how a story that lacks not only the “why,” but also the “what,” gets covered in the news.

This is a typical example of what to expect in the future of media dystopia. Nobody knows anything about what happened but there are many programs based on hype and speculation. And believe it or not a lot of it is coming from NPR. This is clear evidence that they effectively compete for ratings. Truly "bread and circus" for the mind.

Every time the media mentions that there were 2 Iranians with fake passports ,they're pushing the Muslim angle. Initially the report was that there were 4 or was it 5 people with fake passports. All we hear now is about the 2 Iranian ones. If it is the case that everyday hundreds of people travel with fake passports on planes, then to bring up the 2 Iranian and their fake passports how common an occurrence fake passports are, and to fail to mention the other passengers without fake passports is to do exactly what you claim the media is not doing; pushing the Muslim angle.Is it that you're bothered the media is not pushing it enough for your taste? So under guise of exposing your perceived surprise[failure?] of the media in not pushing a Muslim angle,you push the Muslim narrative yourself. As you should and probably do know that people fly every day on fake passports and the 2 Iranians were not the only ones with fake passports but fail to mention that.

So many excellent expert i have listened in your program telling all no brain details without any real knowledge of the Airplane systems. NO body , no body yet have question a simple factor: The cargo list manifesto still is un-know. Now after several days my theory is surfacing and some "expert" are writing that that because an airline pilot have a sophisticate simulator at home he is an Airline transport Pirate! I can show my IFR simulator is you wish!!
Afer 9-11 all the aviation enthusiast become potential terrors, are we going down this road again? please stop stupidity in the media and pray with me that the plane had been stolen and landed somewhere .and all passengers are alive I hope.
