    How much does the missing Malaysian airliner affect you?

    The media has incessantly covered the missing Malaysian airliner. This is extremely cheap for them to do - rather than having investigative reporters around the country and world for actual domestic and foreign policy matters.

    Amazingly, most people are so gullible they will agree that a missing Malaysian airliner is THE most important topic and issue in the world to them going right along with it. And, then, our government decides "yes, the missing Malaysian airliner is a top US government priority!"

    I haven't watched about it or read about it myself. There are constant tragedies all over the world 24/7 and a missing Malaysian airline has exactly no relevancy to my life whatsoever.

    Not at all, and I'm shocked at the volume of airtime it is getting.

    Sorry, once again when I clicked to add more poll questions forum software instead just loaded it.

    The last poll question was to be: "I am curious but it does not affect my life."

    I don't care at all. That's not an option on the poll.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Other than having to switch the channel the answer is no it doesn't effect me. I have no relatives or loved ones on that plane and my family travels by car or bus.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Not at all.

    If I never hear another word about it that's fine with me.

    Maybe the aliens took the airliner and the passagers for a bit of anal probing. Just saying...

    Re: How much does the missing Malaysian airliner affect you?

    It's sad for those people and the families, but the amount of media coverage this thing is getting is ridiculous. There are other things going on in the world, quite possibly the beginnings of a major war. So yeah, 24 hour news stations can go **** off.

    I agree with YS. I feel so horribly for the families, but damn. Enough is enough.

    Re: How much does the missing Malaysian airliner affect you?

    NBC News political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd publicly criticized CNN this week for its relentless use of the "breaking news" chyron on stories related to missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370.

    "Another day of 'breaking news' based on finding nothing or in other words, 'not breaking news,'" Todd, who also hosts MSNBC's "Daily Rundown," wrote on Twitter on Friday morning.

    "I know it may look like I am casting stones while potentially living in a glass house. But the mistakes of one news org hurts ALL of us," he wrote. "Then it becomes 'the media' is abusing 'breaking news' -- no it's not 'the media' in general."
