2014-03-31 Media Coverage over Missing Malaysian Jetliner MH370
   2014-03-31 12:57:03    Beyond Beijing      Web Editor: Zhang Kun

Panel discussion:
It's over three weeks now since the disapperance of the Malaysia Airlines MH370 jet and to be honest, we now know a bit more than three weeks ago as to what might have happened to the flight itself, but in reality, there's very little to go on in terms of where it is, what happened to it and the fate of the passnengers--many of whom are Chinese.
And you can understand the frustration of the relatives who are still none the wiser as to what'd happened. Their anger and frustration would not have been helped by the intense and endless speculation on news channels--some of which bordered on sensationalism and often at times, grossly ridiculous and insensitive. We'll talk about that but also the shortcomings in the Chinese media's own reporting on this story in what is essentially as a national disaster.

Global Talks:
Today we are debating the search continuing for missing Malaysian jetliner MH370, now in a new area, no breakthrough being made between the US and Russia on the Ukraine issue despite holding talks, the Turkish Prime Minister claiming victory in a local election, as well as France's governing Socialists suffering big losses in municipal elections.
