Vice: Media Conspircy Theories Rule the Day

Vice nails it.

Sprawling news organizations struggle to feed 24-hour news channels and constantly updated blogs with the meager rations available—each morsel is sniffed and inspected and toyed with hour after hour until every last drop of flavor has been extracted. And when the facts run out, you can always rely on the efforts of experts cum storytellers, who will be happy to spin yarns from the thinnest and most fragile of threads in exchange for a bit of exposure.

This crash is the perfect storm of page view driven media bullshit. I am surprised CNN doesn't have Anderson Cooper on a boat in the South Pacific looking for wreckage.
