On The Daily Show Monday, Jon Stewart drew attention to CNN's non-stop coverage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

In one clip, Stewart shows CNN hosts discussing the possibility that the plane was swallowed by a black hole or the Bermuda Triangle. One person even asked if the story of Malaysia Flight 370 could be "like the movie Lost."


One anchor even suggested that investigators use a credible psychic who specializes in missing persons. "It sounds incredible, but it has been used before," said CNN.
