CNN Panel Speaks Absurdly About Possibility That Black Hole Swallowed Flight 370

The Right Scoop's headline is precious: CNN Smears Black Holes in Latest Bout of Wild Speculation.

The only thing I can say in Don Lemon's defense is that he was... well, he said he was trying to respond to viewer questions. Apparently some people inquired about what I will call "The Black Hole Theory of the Crime." I guess you could say he was trying to inform people or something.

Of course, as usual, he was asking a non-expert to offer her expert opinion on the question. The woman he asked this question of opined that a black whole would swallow "our entire universe," which is... well, metaphorically true, I suppose, but only that. She did not note that there are theorized to exist microscopic black holes. If you remember, there was some fear that the Large Hadron Collider would produce some of these microscopic black holes, and do significant damage to the earth. (Spoiler alert: It didn't happen. And btw, I have no idea what the destructive potential of a microscopic black hole would be.)

I mean, if you're going to "explore the question" or whatever, then explore it. It's a silly idea, but if you're going to disabuse people of silly theories about black holes swallowing planes, then have an actual expert on black holes on to explain, as a scientific matter, "Nah, bro."

Meanwhile, Australia has announced "new and credible" information about large objects floating at sea which are possibly wreckage of the plane, spotted by satellite. They've deployed planes to take a closer look.

"Verification might take some time. It is very far and it will take some time to locate and verify the objects," the source said.

Watch out for the black holes, mate. Some say there's a swarm of them.

An ABCNews report on the search for the objects, stolen from Hot Air, below.
