Vanity: Has CNN's Wolf Blitzer gone totally hysterical about the Malaysia Air situation?
SELF

Posted on 03/13/2014 5:28:02 PM PDT by SilvieWaldorfMD

Been watching coverage on CNN about the Malaysia Airlines matter and Wolf Blitzer is starting to sound as hysterical as Nancy Grace.

Hypothesizing more than other network anchors and very repetitious.

What gives? He's usually as cool as a cucumber...

Anderson Cooper seems more calm and collected these days...

CNN loses all credibility when they keep bringing on that Mary Schiavo b*tch..whenever I see her talk about “Catastrophic mechanical failure” I want to punch her in the face

What's your gripe against her? Hasn't she always been very critical of the FAA and their cozy relationships with the airlines, especially over safety and crash investigations?

I’ve only seen Wulf Blister a few times in the last 5 yrs or so.
One was when Trump was scoffing at him over how few people were watching the show.

The comment was something like “there’s more people in Yankee Stadium this afternoon that are watching this program worldwide.

It’s something that I have a hard time admitting to — but it’s the only network that is covering Malaysia Air 24/7, so maybe I’m part of the problem!

LOL

it seems pretty clear from the latest US reports that the plane was “manually” diverted. that means its either rogue pilots, or someone on board took control. just guessing here, but i vote for someone on board.

Yup - Fox is pretty much ignoring it, so not much choice.

However - much of the stuff coming from the CNN “experts” is even sillier then the FR “experts”

Wolf harped on that Chinese satellite “piece of debris” yesterday for the better part of 6-8 hours... it was unbelievable!

Usually I like watching Wolf, but nowadays I only tune in at 4pm to watch Jake Tapper’s show....

Haven’t really been paying much attention to any coverage of this story because of all the hysteria, guessing, rumors and just plain inaccuracies. Until and unless the plane is found, it’s just not worth paying attention to anything about this story in the media.

Bottom line is no one in the media knows what happened. And people who might know probably will never tell the whole truth.

Some idiot caller called Michael Savage today and said that he thought the plane was downed by the Malaysian AF by mistake, and that the AF ‘cleaned up the debris field’ within hours so that no one would notice....

In the middle of the night?

How do you know you have all of the debris when it’s pitch dark in the middle of an ocean or sea?

Moron.

The ValuJet crash was horrific — I recall that many honeymooning couples were coming back from their cruises... Just awful!

Ironic that CNN is on in almost every airport terminal and their the network that goes wall to wall coverage on the missing Malay flight. How nice.

CNN will harp on anything to distract from their comrade leader’s failures. 4-5 hours of saying nothing is just a starter for them. They can drone on and speculate for weeks at a time.

Maybe a way to divert attention from Obama’s failed ‘there will be costs’ speech to Putin and the fact that he’s amassing troupes on the border of the Ukraine?

Just a thought.

Anything to keep the media focus off the Democrat disaster called “losing elections.”

********************
I have Fox News on daily from about noon through the prime time shows. EVERY program during that time frame has been running 1 to 3 segments on the airplane disappearance! Each program repeats what previous ones did and then provides some new speculative information. ...Getting real tiresome hearing the same stuff over and over. I wish they would just put a sock in it until some new facts emerge.

maybe he knows the flight was ‘disappeared’ and could happen to anyone

and maybe he’s received the ultimatum to stay on story or he or someone he loves will be next... and no one in the world will ever know what happened to them

As the old saying goes...”If it bleeds, it leads.”

The more you hype and dramatize a story the more viewers you might have watch. Considering where their ratings are they will do and say anything to up those numbers.

They (some number of governments) shot the plane down. It’s finally sinking in what “benevolent dictatorships” do as a matter of coarse, serving “the greater good”.

Imagine Blitzer realizing this is what he’s cheer led for?

He’s thinking now he should have kept his job as a lobbyist for Israel, at least the backup plan was hiding under some Israeli women’s skirt.

CNN’s Richard Quest is a JOKE.

The CNN morning show panel invited some terrorism expert to discuss the terror angle/possibility, and Quest just rips the poor guy a new one.

To his credit, the guy says: “You invited me to discuss the terrorism and that’s exactly what I’m doing. We can only speculate at this point!” Good for him!

Quest is a crazy crazy man..just look at him, he is actually ENJOYING this..this is the first time in YEARS this fruitcake has actually gotten airtime..he is also friends with the pilot and flew with him a week before this happened so I think that in some way he is trying to protect his buddy..I mean in a post 9/11 world to be hijacked would make the pilot look like a dummy so I think he is trying to divert responsibility away from him

lol... I didn’t say I was WATCHING Fox News all that time!

I live alone and usually am busy doing other things around the house, so the TV is more like a radio for me, as I can hear it through most of the rooms.
