    good grief...even today this is CNN's top story. They themselves helped create this crap reality TV story. Stuff like this really makes them look like joke as a news reporting agency.

    I didn't think that it was just CNN who made this into a story. If CNN was aiding and abetting these hoaxer parents CNN also set this duplicitous duo up for exposure by their own little gang member. Did not the kid still the beans or was it his lunch on CNN ?

    It was all over MSNBC and Fox News as the main story of the day as well.

    That was my thought before it became a hoax. To me, we shouldn't be responsible for this family's stupid invention mishap.

    It's fantastic that children have a way of revealing the truth.

    I am so scared for those kids tonight, especially Falcon. To be so upset that he was vomitting, suggests a very dark world inside that home.

    When this happened CNN was all over it...preempted all other news to cover it. They didn't vet a thing and kept trying to make up the story as they went.
    It was all about sensationalism and publicity. It really wouldn't suprise me if they were in on the hoax.

    They continued to exploit the kid by putting him on their network while he was vomiting.

    I do not think criminal charges should be involved

    but they should be culpable for all costs this stunt created, including lost crops

    Really?

    Stop and consider not the local charges, but consider what the Federal Aviation Administration is going to do!

    correct me if I am wrong, but if you are in a car accident that renders you near death, you are fortunate to have a lifeflight helicopter fly to the nearest trauma center. of which you are 100% responsible for the cost.
    I fail to see how this is any different
    the pulled a foolish practical joke and they should pay the price.

    if you get lost in teh wilderness you are culpable for the search efforts to find you

    or am I wrong about this, and a link would be nice to back up such a claim
