PRESS RELEASE No.7 – MH370 **
May 11, 2014
By: John E. Fiorentino
This is our seventh Press Release relating to the Malaysia Flight 370 investigation and CNN's role in reporting the incident.
I am happy to announce that after much effort, CNN and Aviation Analyst and former FAA Inspector David Soucie, author of “WHY PLANES CRASH” An Accident Investigators Fight For Safe Skies, have broken the news relating to my research on the underwater “pings” detected in the Flight 370 investigation.
Soucie appeared at 7:17am ET on CNN's NEWDAY Saturday to comment on the recent air balloon accident in Virginia and to field questions with Mary Schiavo, former Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation about the Flight 370 investigation.
Under questioning by CNN Anchor Ana Cabrera, Soucie discussed breaking news about the Inmarsat satellite data and the underwater “pings.”
ANA CABRERA, CNN ANCHOR: “There was a news story in the Atlantic Magazine that's now questioning that Inmarsat data and the analysis of the data and wondering if it can even be trusted. There's also a new CNN/ORC poll finding that nearly half of all Americans do not believe that Flight 370 is in the Indian Ocean where the search is taking place. So David have searchers been looking in the wrong place??
VICTOR BLACKWELL, CNN ANCHOR “The wrong Ocean?”
Soucie “Well, it's, it's very troubling for me right now because we have this convergence of data we've been talking about. Convergence of information, where we say Inmarsat data may have some questions about it, and then the pings in the ocean may have some questions about it. But if you put the two together it puts you in that area, But subsequently, we've found now that Inmarsat data after the Atlantic report yesterday may be very much in question as to how those things were arrived, but more importantly for me, .. I've taken the stance that these pings we've found in the ocean were actually from the aircraft and that no one's been able to show me what else could be producing this. But a gentleman by the name of John Forentino,, Fiorentino, ah and he has a Newsvine article, he's been blasting me for sticking to my point on this. But he actually did - he's the only one who did - provide me with some information about a pinger that's located in the ocean that's used on nets, fishing nets, that does produce the same pinging at a 33 megahertz frequency.*. So that's incredibly damaging to my position on that and it's incredibly damaging to the Inmarsat data as well because Inmarsat data was only 100% credible if it had corroborating evidence, which that corroborating evidence, thanks to John Fiorentino, has been eliminated. So, I'm very concerned that we have been looking indeed in the wrong place...”
Special Thanks to David Soucie
It isn't easy to change a position you've held with conviction for a fair amount of time. After talking with Mr. Soucie, the delay in getting my information out was apparently on CNN's side. In any event, I commend David Soucie for his courage and honesty.
It can only be hoped now, that the investigatory authorities will consider this evidence when making any forthcoming decisions regarding their official investigation.
