There are few things that get CNN as excited as a missing plane.
In fact one of the station’s top reporters, Don Lemon, received a DART Award from Columbia Journalism Review for some of the worst journalism of 2014 in part for postulating that Malaysia Flight 370 — which disappeared in March — may have been swallowed by a black hole.
So in light of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 going missing Sunday, the Twitterverse is begging CNN to not go into a missing flight frenzy this time.
AirAsia Flight 8501 has lost contact with air traffic control in Jakarta, Indonesia, the airline says. http://t.co/qLbFpfIZV1
