    Actually, the guidance system aboard the flight (designed by GM) malfunctioned, and the plane was diverted to Benghazi. It as only on landing that the passengers, who been too busy texting to notice the change in the flight path) learned that they were missing when their CNN apps issued an alert.

  3. That’s very good, Greg. I said in my Media Criticism class — and then found myself quoted by students on Facebook — that “the only way CNN will cover Syria is if they find the plane there.” But you’ve managed to bring together the disparate elements of each network’s coverage to come up with what CNN would consider a perfectly logical explanation.

    And by the way, this morning while MSNBC and Fox News were both talking about the Supreme Court, CNN was talking about … the plane.
