Why so much coverage of flight 370?

Malaysia, plane, 777

I know there has been criticism of all the coverage of missing flight 370. But the article below may tell you why….those 239 are not just a statistic. And what do you think happens to the intensity of the search, or the candor of the Malaysia airline when the media spotlight fades? Yes, it is true there are many other stories to cover but there are also many many news outlets, and the internet. Those stories are getting coverage. You may have to hunt to find other stories, but they are being covered. There is also no magic formula as to how much is the right amount about any one topic…and many topics get short sheeted…I realize that but you do the best you can.
