Don Lemon Asks If A Black Hole Swallowed Flight 370


Is it any wonder CNN’s ratings are in the tank? Personally, I’ve been flogging the “it was the aliens” meme in discussions (solely as a joke, though it would be amusing to see some faces if it turned out to be real), but this one is beyond stupid. This is the kind of stupid following the phrase “hey, y’all, watch this!”

(Mediaite) 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.

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?

Yes, yes it is preposterous. Foolish, idiotic, beyond stupid. Find your own adjective. The other panelists did a good job of not performing a double facepalm and/or laughing in his face. Remember, this is the same fool who asked Bill Nye, a TV science guy, if global warming caused the near earth asteroid.

Anthony Watts: “Remember this the next time one of these idiots discusses the science of global warming.” We should, because Lemon brought up all sorts of crazy theories on the show besides the black hole. Which would have destroyed the Earth.
