*CNN has been on a ratings tear since launching its saturation coverage of missing Malaysia flight MH370. But unfortunately, it leaves producers struggling to fill blocks upon blocks of airtime when nothing new is happening in the story.
It’s no surprise that discussion eventually turned to the various conspiracy theories that have followed the case.
Then…Lemon asked Mary Schiavo, a former U.S. Department of Transportation inspector general, if the missing Malaysian Airlines jetliner could’ve been sucked into a “black hole.”
“That’s what people are saying,” Lemon said. “I know it’s preposterous — but is it preposterous you think, Mary?
“Well, it is. A small black hole would suck in our entire universe so we know it’s not that,” Schiavo said. “The Bermuda Triangle is often weather. And ‘Lost’ is a TV show. So I think — I always like things for which there’s data history, crunch the numbers. So for me those aren’t there.”
“But I think it’s wonderful that the whole world is trying to help with their theories and I absolutely love their theories,” she added.
