( March 24, 2014, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Last week I wrote an article suggesting that the story surrounding the allegedly missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 could be a hoax. The reason I suggested that this was possible is because there has been so much misinformation and conflicting details about what happened along with a rabid media obsession about it. Plus, losing a Boeing 777 airplane is nearly impossible considering all the tracking technology and safeguards that are in place. Even professional pilots have been at a loss to explain what happened. Now new information has been revealed raising even more questions and increasing the possibility that the Flight 370 mystery is nothing more than a media staged hoax.
Apparently CNN’s Richard Quest met the Flight 370 co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid a couple of weeks before the news broke. A picture of Quest with Hamid was actually posted on Instagram showing that the two had indeed met. Quest was asked about this supposedly bizarre coincidence by radio host Robin Young earlier this week. During the interview, Quest plays dumb acting like he didn’t even realize he met the Flight 370 co-pilot. Then he goes on to say that he was doing a story on Malaysian Airlines for a CNN Business Traveler taping. According to him, this is why he was in Malaysia and on a Malaysian Airlines flight a few weeks before.
If this happened to a reporter from another news network it might be explained away as coincidence but the fact that this was with a CNN reporter raises a ton of questions. CNN out of all the major media networks has provided non-stop coverage of this alleged event almost 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The odds of Quest meeting both the Flight 370 co-pilot and doing a story on Malaysian Airlines based on chance alone just weeks before this news broke is astronomical. Quest was most likely meeting with Malaysian Airlines in preparation for this media driven hoax that was about to be unveiled. Hell, even the photo of the co-pilot the media has featured appears to be nothing more than a cropped version of the photo Quest is in. There’s no way to believe that all of this is just some random coincidence.
On top of this, CNN has been caught faking news stories before. Charles Jaco’s laughable Gulf War coverage is perhaps the most famous example of CNN broadcasting faked or manufactured news for ratings. With CNN’s ratings in the toilet, it would certainly be in their interest to do something drastic to boost ratings.
Even though CNN’s ratings have been temporarily boosted as a result of this circus, their continued Flight 370 coverage has become an increasingly ridiculous joke. It has degenerated into a mishmash of insane conspiracy theories referencing black holes, the Bermuda Triangle and even zombie planes. It is comical how CNN will focus in on all sorts of unproven conspiracy theories about Flight 370 but won’t do a proper investigation of real conspiracies like the 9/11 attacks, 7/7 bombings, the Sandy Hook alleged mass shooting, the Boston Marathon bombing and many others. It once again shows how their news analysis has zero credibility.
Blurry satellite photos showing nothing specific have prompted wide spread searches in a remote part of the Indian Ocean for the allegedly missing plane. Conveniently the search is focused in on an area that is extremely difficult to search due to its location, ocean currents and climate. It is too bad for the searchers that it looks as if they’ve been intentionally sent on a wild goose chase. Guess the hoaxers need more time to come up with a proper story to explain all of this. The fact that the search is focused in such a difficult area to explore is also something that should be questioned as this allows the story to be prolonged even further.
Going back to Quest, this guy is a shady media whore and highly untrustworthy. Nothing he says should be given any credibility. Apparently before his run at CNN he spent several years spreading propaganda at the BBC. It also turns out that Quest is a perverted homosexual Jew. In 2008, Quest was arrested after being found in New York’s Central Park with another man after the park had closed. Police discovered that Quest possessed methamphetamine, a sex toy and had a piece of rope tied around his neck and private parts. The man is clearly a sexual deviant. Is this really the type of guy you want to trust to get news and information from? This is the type of sicko you would hire to spread misinformation, lies and propaganda which probably explains why CNN has kept him on the air for all of these years.
To conclude, the fact that a CNN reporter met the Flight 370 co-pilot a few weeks before all of this happened is just too much of a coincidence to overlook. This is especially considering that CNN has been leading the charge with never ending Flight 370 coverage. This new information vastly strengthens the possibility that this whole thing is a wild goose chase hoax. None the less, it will certainly be entertaining to see what sort of official story they use to explain what happened. After all, they really can’t use this as a distraction much longer. They will have to offer some sort of explanation to tie up all the loose ends and they’re probably struggling with that as we speak. No matter what official story they choose, it will be a lie. That much is certain.
