It used to be that you could depend on news programs to keep you informed. Now the news has devolved into a reality show dumbed down to a fourth grade level.
A week ago we found out about a nuclear test in North Korea on the crawl during an episode of Clinton verses Trump. A couple of days later it was mentioned briefly in passing on another news program.
Yesterday we learned about the South Korean fly over by two U.S. B1-B supersonic bombers - again on the crawl. The flyover was a show of force to North Korea for the detonation of a nuclear device.
The B1-B bomber carries the largest payload of any U.S. aircraft and is capable of nuclear deliveries. This is our big boy replacement for the B-52, which by the way is still commissioned.
Why hasn’t this taken top reporting in our news? We have a psychopath in charge of a bellicose country developing nuclear war heads and a delivery system that could reach the west coast of the United States, and we are focused on the basket of deplorable.
The 24/7 news channels have destroyed serious news reporting.
