'This is why human beings are not going to survive because they couldn't see what was the important one'

Maher: ‘Least Important Thing We Could Pull Out of the Ocean Is that Airplane’ (Mediaite)

On AMERICA with Jorge Ramos Wednesday night, Bill Maher denounced the focus on MH370 given all the waste in the world’s oceans, and lamented the loss of CNN as a “down the middle” news station to “tabloid journalism.”

“I honestly think the least important thing we could pull out of the ocean is that airplane,” Maher said. “It’s been a sobering experience when one week after another we see all this debris floating around in the ocean and all this stuff we have to get out. That’s the stuff we need to get out of the ocean — oil slicks and dead whales and cargo and plastic.”

“The focus as always in America is on the wrong thing,” Maher said. “There are two parts to this story — the ocean and the plane. This I think is why human beings aren’t going to survive, because they couldn’t see which was the important one.”
