CNN’s Don Lemon Raises Every Crazy Theory About Missing Malaysian Plane (VIDEO)

After CNN anchor Don Lemon “went there” and threw out the possibility of a “supernatural” event causing the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, he spent Monday’s show inviting Twitter users to send in all their crazy questions and theories about the missing jet for debate.

Among the possibilities Lemon’s panel of experts evaluated: that the plane was “stolen” to use in a later terror attack (deemed possible), that the plane was actually in North Korea (not possible) and that pilots could depressurize the plane to cause passengers to pass out (possible).

One Twitter user even asked why CNN anchor Richard Quest filmed a recent story with Malaysia Airlines. Quest said he did fly with the co-pilot of the missing jet — but ruling out a CNN conspiracy, he said the encounter was “pure coincidence and luck.”

Lemon also highlighted some viewer feedback on his Twitter feed that didn’t make it to air:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
