Possibility a black hole was involved

Mediaite reports:
CNN’s Don Lemon has been entertaining all sorts of theories about the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, including the chance something “supernatural” happened, but on Wednesday night, he actually asked panelists about the possibility a black hole was involved.

Lemon brought this up along with other “conspiracy theories” people have been floating on Twitter, including people noting the eerie parallels to Lost and The Twilight Zone, and wondered, “is it preposterous” to consider a black hole as a possibility?

Mary Schiavo, a former Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Transportation, said, “A small black hole would suck in our entire universe, so we know it’s not that.”

Here’s another theory I’ll just throw out there: what about the plane entered a wormhole into another dimension? I don’t know if that’s how the science works, though.
Schiavo's comment is crazier than Lemon's. All of the proposed Flight 370 theories appear to contradict some of the supposed facts, so it is almost reasonable to list some outlandish theories. They both seem to have some misconceptions about black holes. They have probably been watching PBS TV or the Discovery channel.

  1. You only have to examine CNN's ratings to see where this kind of reportage is taking a once respectable news source. At this rate of shrinkage, it may be CNN itself that disappears into the unknown.
