Re: Our Malaysian Airline coverage
People tend to root for an interesting story — the Hollywood version — rather than a boring truth.
We're seeing that to a degree with the Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 story. As the mystery grows, more and more theories abound about its disappearance. Some are outlandish (aliens and meteorites) while others are sinister (terrorists and Snowden). And then there are the more straightforward: mechanical failure, fire, weather, etc.
