Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: 'pulse signal' detected, Chinese report says - World - CBC News


W.T.F. is the point of reporting pulses from the Black box if it is NOT from the missing plane?

We are living in the information age where news is the new entertainment media.
We are over the shock of reality shows so unreal happenings in real life are all we
have left. The new real is he unreal

it is no win for the report either way, they will be trashed if they say nothing, and like you did, will
be trashed for saying something, so i say, say something, and let those who want to follow up along with
them do so, and the others can ignore the report.
realistic people will know that it could be, or not, and will accept that.

maybe there is something else down there that has been missing, the signal is 'something'.

Actually it was Admiral Nelson, Capt. Crane was the, er, Captain. I can't rmember if it was Jiggs or Kowalski, (Ski) who was the engineer.

True JLM. The media has been misleading at every step in order to grab a catchy headline.

It's the nature of the 24 hour news cycle, even news that isn't news is news. That's why I don't watch CNN or any other cable news network. They feed off those who try to be every bit in tune but are so without a clue that they run into you or walk onto roadways oblivious to their surroundings while they have their heads down checking their phones or other "connected"devices.

I quit watching the steady news cycle 3 months after I started watching it in '88. Nothing has changed since then, except how easily we can get it.

When the plane is found or the black box is in someone's hand we want to hear about it, until then focus on news! -

You know, I just wish they would stop calling them "black boxes", they're not black, they're orange. They are CVR's and DFDR's, or they could just call them data boxes, or recorders. The media just love to add that little bit of mystery and /or shock value.
