It is my belief that the MSM is talking about CTs because, well, there's nothing else to report. You can only talk about people looking for a missing plane or talk about how to manually turn off a transponder for so long. The 24hr news cycle needs more talking points, that's all. They are by no means taking CT seriously, only filling the airwaves until the next big thing happens which, of course, will be the Crimean vote on Sunday. Heck, that was starting to get redundant.
The MSM needs news and, for the most part, the folks on this site need CTs...no matter how outlandish they may be. In fact, this site was jumping on the story that the Iranians would be made into patsies and then officials came out and said they weren't. Seems folks on here want there to be conspiracies so they can thump their chests and shout to the world that they were right along, but it never really seems to turn out that way. Those threads seem to just disappear until, just like the MSM, the next big thing happens...kind of interesting.
Unfortunately, this plane did not land in the Moldives and get hidden in a non-existent hangar; it, unfortunately, fell into the ocean and the families of 200+ people will never see their loved ones again. Perhaps, one day, when this plane is found and the black box is brought to the surface, we will know what happened.
I will admit that the path of the plane, after the transponder was turned off, is very odd. Could be a malfunction, but whether it was mechanical or human is still unknown and won't be known until they find the plane. That said, it could be anything from a vortex to aliens to gov't conspiracy to Lithium batteries; we'll just have to wait and see. Until then, the MSM will fill us on the Crimean vote.

Agreed and not trying to be the proverbial "troll" on your thread, I just feel that there needs to be opposing viewpoints. I still don't think your theory is correct as I've stated but, hell, it very well could and I could be completely full of it.

Just checked it out. This is about to get a LOT more interesting. Wonder if it was landed and refueled already. Still completely baffled by how a commercial jetliner can go undetected for this long.
From the mouth of the Chinese government, via a commentary, 3 unidentified sources reported that the craft headed westbound. They base this on military satellite data which indicates the plane was flying the normal corridors to the Middle East/Europe.
The commentary also mentions how "silent" the West is on the whole issue compared to their normal reactions, i.e., Lockerbie.
Actually, quite an interesting read, especially with their references to "deep throat", but consider the source:
So, does China really care about a conspiracy on the part of the West, or are they trying to deflect?
India claims USA-Malaysia conspiracy. They have also debunked the theory that it entered the Indo-Pak aerospace.
Officials suspect that there is an arrangement between Malaysia and US agencies. Not sufficient of what Malaysia knows is being transmitted to India or other countries involved in a 'wild goose chase'.
