During a segment about Malaysia Airlines flight 370, which has been missing since last weekend, CNN scrapped the on-screen graphics to add a more realistic look to the story:

Is it possible that CNN execs are getting a little tired of all the on-screen graphic mistakes and are switching to stage props instead?

It could happen. Because THIS. Is CNN.

    Good. When discussing abortion,she can break out a toy fetus…….say at 20 weeks.

      I thought that was what the traveling vagina costumes were for. (if they included the fetus.)

        The Dancing Vulvae were just demanding rspect.

    CNN also presented this enactment of an “expert’s” theory, for the missing airliner …

    Hey, look on the bright side.

    At least she wasn’t wearing tampons as earrings.

    • Hirogen

      Tampon earrings? That was Melissa Harris Perry.

      Oh wait. She is a black female on TV and the plane lady is a black female on TV.

      Oh now that’s comedy!

    And in other news, CNN has announced that Gallagher will take over the 9PM Eastern hour (which is being vacated by Piers Morgan’s departure) to do his unique brand of reportage and commentary on the issues of the day.

  • WhoMeToo

    WTF??? That’s so offensive. Could you imagine them using a 9/11 plane model like that? Perhaps crashing into some model Twin Towers?

  • Maxx

    Apparently, eight year-olds are CNN’s new target audience. Stay tuned for the latest Afghanistan update using GI Joes.

  • grais

    OMG !!! It’s gonna crash into her head !!!

  • Scorpion

    Arvin Sloane is having it repainted as Air Force 1 at an undisclosed location. Who knows where it will end up next.

  • Walter Sobchak

    At least she didn’t smash it and light it on fire a la Tommy Boy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2XvxDaIwCw

    CNN Explainer: This is when the plane flew into my $1500 dollar hair weave and I flung it between 2,000 and 5,000 miles away from me.

    “This is a Boeing 777. It doesn’t carry any assault rifles that should be banned to protect our children, but it has these black box thingies that quit working.” :-)

    • 4liberty

      Calling them “black boxes” is racists- now this “news reporter” on the other hand….

  • RanierWest

    well atleast it wasn’t a spoon full of food (making airplane sound) so she could spoon feed news to her target audience.

  • Janice LEE

    CNN knows their audience. People with second grade IQs.

  • ToyZebra

    Here’s the airplane. And here is Cobra Commander coming to capture it. But Superman and Mr Potato Head come to save the day!

    I followed the MH370 March 8, the aircraft disappeared and reappeared on Chinese soil 175 km north.I have said it to BBC.take it seriously

  • John

    Yes, that is a plane
