Don Lemon and others used a scale model of the missing airliner – essentially, a child’s toy plane – to illustrate their coverage, at times pointing at parts of the scale replica.

The reaction on social media was swift and cutting..

“A toy plane. That’s real journalism right there,” said one viewer on social network Twitter.

“Watching [presenter] Don Lemon point to areas of a toy plane as he describes various scenarios. Thanks, but I’m not ten,” said another.
But CNN is, to some extent, caught between the commercial devil and the deep blue sea.

“You know CNN has been running out of things to talk about in their 24hr koverage of the plane disappearance when they start using toy planes”source

In the arena of round-the-clock broadcasting, the news network has in recent years been outdone by Fox News to the tune of millions of viewers.

That is, until CNN gets the exclusive on the story on the case of missing TOY Malaysia plane.
