When CNN did this I first thought (and this may actually be true) that our governments and world governments in general didn't want people thinking too much about what is happening regarding Russia, Crimea and the Ukraine and so directed all these networks to cover the flight instead.
However, it has also come to my attention that CNNs ratings doubled (the amount of viewers of CNN doubled) when they put information regarding the disappearance of the plane out 23 hours a day. I suppose you still get about 1 hour (total) a day of actual important news but it sort of makes me and hopefully you wonder what is actually going on?
If you actually want real news about what is going on in the world I suggest Google news or:

- www.cnn.com/WORLD CachedCNN brings you headlines, video and news stories from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas.So, if you want to find out about something quickly around the world Google.comor CNN.com or pbs.com likely would be your best bets for finding actual news that is important to you and your survival rather than entertainment news which is "mostly for entertainment" more than actual survival. So, basically what I'm saying is that (in order to keep the most people's attention) the TV networks CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are much less about actual news and more about getting and keeping viewers 24 hours a day more than any other thing. This means that what grabs the most people's attention gets covered. But that doesn't mean it will necessarily help you survive what is actually coming in your life and the lives of those around you.
