Missing Malaysia Flight MH370: CNN anchor genuinely entertains missing plane black hole theory

Lost and Twilight Zone connections also discussed

In the face of little concrete information to go on, CNN has been struggling to fill its hours of rolling coverage of the Malaysia flight MH370 disappearance this week, leading it to at one point broadcast a panel discussion on the conspiracy theories circulating.

"Is it preposterous to consider a black hole was involved?" CNN's Don Lemon asked a panel of floating heads to their bemusement.

Mary Schiavo, a former Inspector General for the US Department of Transportation, shut the debate down fairly quickly, replying:  "A small black hole would suck in our entire universe, so we know it’s not that."

Lemon also plundered the depths of similarities between the mystery and the shows Lost and The Twilight Zone, and was surely seconds from questioning the Illuminati's part in all this.

Black holes theory notwithstanding, two large pieces of debris have been found four hours from the Australian coast today that authorities say is their "best lead" yet as to the plane's whereabouts.
