CNN: "zOMG!! Something is Floating in the Indian Ocean!!1!!"

Nearly two months after debris from the vanished Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 washed up on Reunion Island, a large object reportedly floating off the island has piqued the interest of French officials there.

An Air France pilot reported seeing "a white object" floating in the Indian Ocean on Tuesday morning about 70 kilometers (43 miles) northwest of the French island, said Siva Vadivelou, assistant director of the French Civil Aviation Authority on Reunion.
Really? Somebody saw some big hunk of something floating and that's enough for CNN to go all, well, whatever the fuck it is that CNN does?

Which isn't, apparently, journalism.

Perhaps the white object is this notorious black hole I've heard of.

Did it have harpoons sticking out of it and a guy with a pegleg tangled up in them?
