Australian Media's Wild Speculation About Missing Plane a New Low

12 March 2014, 11:30am

Chopper Read famously stated that he never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn. A motto that Australian media companies have clearly taken to heart.

A plane on a flight from KL to Beijing has infamously gone missing and the authorities are at a loss to explain the disaster.

This has not stopped Australian media outlets from speculating wildly about the possible reasons the plane went down. In the past week News.com.au has published articles that focused on wild theories being churned out by other news outlets, included but not limited to: terrorists with fake passports, a Malaysian cover-up and even a bomb. Speculation reached a surreal peak when they ran an article on the most "epic conspiracy theories" surrounding the disaster.

It seems that Australian media outlets will run a story based on any unverified piece of information. Without a single thought being given to the terrified friends and families of the victims who are also relying on the news to keep them "informed".

If you ask us, global warming or over-fishing is to blame for this disaster. Speculate on lads.
