Flight MH370 probably crashed into the ocean as a result of tragic technical failure (when in doubt, think Occam’s razor), but that hasn’t stopped the media from speculating ad nauseam about terrorism, black holes, and sinister supernatural forces for the past couple of weeks. Leading the vanguard were the cable news networks (lookin’ at you, CNN), and Jon Stewart took them to task last night, sparing no-one from his eviscerating wit.
Will this change cable news’ coverage of future tragedies? Of course not! But at least there’s Jon to remind us all that, yes, Lost really is just a TV show.
