Are MH370 searchers looking in the wrong ocean?

Are searchers of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 looking in the wrong ocean?

According to a new report in the Atlantic, experts now have serious questions the satellite data from Inmarsat can be trusted.

Nearly 80% of Americans think no one survived Flight 370, CNN poll finds

This comes after authorities have based almost the entire search spanning tens of thousands of miles on this satellite data.

Was it all for nothing?

OutFront, Michael Exner is the founder of the American Mobile Satellite Corporation and one of the analysts who looked at the data, and David Soucie is a CNN safety analyst and accident investigator.

    Satellite data is like an ECG or an EEG or a CT / MRI scan or may be even a clinical diagnosis.

    The interpretation depends on the calibre of the person who is doing it . And this in turn depends on how many ECG s or EEGs or CT / MRI scans one has seen before and interpreted correctly . The more you have seen , the better is your interpretation .

    A rare diagnosis always calls for a second opinion. No surgeon will ever operate on a patient following the opinion of a radiologist who has never before identified a similar lesion on a brain scan

    This is what has happened in this case .

    Embarked on a multi million $ project following the advice given by someone who has never ever seen a similar case, and hence reached nowhere near where the plane really is
