I think the core question here is whether the people are led by the media or is the media driven by the people.
Personally, I believe that it's the latter.
The media gives us what we want to hear. If there was no interest in the story, ratings would drop, income would dry up and stories would move on to
something else. Simple supply and demand.
I don't watch CNN here in the UK, but it seems like they've decided to make the plane story their "thing" and it would appear that there are enough
people still tuning in for it to be working for them.
As to why it's interesting to so many people, well maybe the 'mystery' aspect is part of it but this story also challenges our perception of the world
we live in. How many times have I heard people say "How is it possible to just LOSE a plane in this day and age"?
Psychologically it's almost easier to buy into theories where the pilots or terrorists took deliberate action to disable communications and avoid any
sort of tracking than it is to acknowledge that perhaps we're not as in control as we believed and that the technology to keep us safe and protected
isn't without its limits.
I honestly don't know what I think happened to that plane, but I just hope that answers are found even if it's just so that the families affected can
get some closure.
