CNN’s coverage of the missing Malaysian airplane this week has been obviously embarrassing, what with its speculation of black holes and “the supernatural” and all that. But it’s really nothing compared to what’s been going on at its sister network HLN.

On last night’s episode of “Dr. Drew On Call” — yes, I know — the hosts brought on a woman who describes herself as a psychic to discuss where the missing plane might be. What came next is about as low as it gets in the news business.
