Her plane disappeared on July 2, 1937.
You can read more of the story here
But it isn't the story that bugs me.
It was a smiley happy morning show host delivering the story that pissed me off.
See, if this story ends up being true...and the 70 + year old mystery gets some closure it means that Earhart and her navigator lived as castaways on an island. That meant that her death was probably a slow painful one. Not something that should be delivered with a smiling face.
No joke. I think that's pretty insensitive.
I wish the media could learn that even if a story is old, if the ending isn't happily ever after, it shouldn't be delivered with a grin.
