The Odyssey of Flight 370: Has CNN Considered This Possibility?

CNN's Ratings Surge With Coverage of the Mystery of the Missing Airliner.    (The New York Times, 3/17/2014)

This can probably be taken as a "yes".  At one point the anchor Don Lemon used a toy model of the plane to illustrate a point being made by one of CNN’s aviation experts. During another interview, Mr. Lemon raised the question of whether something otherworldly happened to the plane. 

“Especially today, on a day when we deal with the supernatural, we go to church, the supernatural power of God,” Mr. Lemon said. “People are saying to me, why aren’t you talking about the possibility — and I’m just putting it out there — that something odd happened to this plane, something beyond our understanding?”

Not to mention no CNN "visual pizzaz".  There is no resolution in The Odyssey of Flight 33. No happy ending. No explanation of events. We are left to wonder what happened to this wayward flight as Captain Farver tries again to return home.
