Good panel discussion of the crash of Flight 9525--as much as CNN gets mocked for this type of coverage, I actually find listening to the theories and even speculation of what may have taken place on the plane fascinating--it remains to be seen what the ultimate explanation for the crash will be but AC, David Soucie, Richard Quest and the other guests offered up some interesting possibilities. The crash of MH370 took place only a year ago this month and it seems there have been far too many crashes since then. How horrible for the families/friends who now have to deal with another loss.

Glad Anderson interviewed Bowe Berghdals attorney instead of some politician with an agenda.

Wednesday's 360 was again almost entirely on Flight 9525. The only other topic was the desertion charges against Sgt. Bowie Bergdahl.

The first two segments were all I needed; the latest news, the panel discussions and theories of what happened and what will happen next. Although I liked hearing from Richard Quest and 9525 is still an important story, it began to feel like 360 was overdoing it.

At the start of the segment of Anderson interviewing two friends of one of the passengers lost on 9525, I switched to Hayes. He covered the apology of one of the Univ. of Oklahoma frat boys for that racist song. I stayed for the discussion about that incident, the apology and other bad frat behavior.

I didn't pay close attention to the segment on Sgt. Bowie Bergdahl but did stay for most of the Q&A with Barbara Starr.

Lastly I watched, as well as i could, Anderson's remembrance piece for the victims of the 9525 crash and Hayes' piece 'The Empire Effect' on minorities on network shows.

Unless there's really big and outstanding news about 9525 on Thursday, 360 needs to cut back on this at least to just half of the show.

I didn't see the second hour. Was it also almost all on 9525?

CNN will never cut back on stories that give them big ratings such as plane crashes like 9525.
Management lives for these stories, like it or not. Viewers love the gore. It is better than a horror movie because it is reality at its best.
