Insular News

It was really quite comical. In 1998, Secretary of Defense William Cohen was testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Cohen said, "Based on intelligence estimates, the North Koreans are years away from multi-stage rocket technology." Three weeks later, the North Koreans lobbed one over Japan.

Now, the North Koreans are preparing to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile, which is capable of reaching our country.

News, you'd think, right? Wrong!

Just look at today's front page of the online editions of the NY Times, Washington Post, Washington Times, LA Times, or Chicago Sun-Times: Not One Word.

But the MSM hasn't totally failed us, the Chicago Tribune does have a front page story.

The NY Times mentions this news in their World section (7th item); the LA Times mentions this news in their World section (8th item). The Washington Post, the Washington Times, and the Chicago Sun-Times cannot even link to a story on the BBC News.
