China landed on the Moon today!
With the most technologically advanced planetary landing machine ever known to be built by mankind in all earth's history (as we know it), successfully softly land on the Moon.
But oddly, or perhaps not so oddly, dependent upon your Country of Origin and contemporary indoctrination.....
America today, remained virtually mute about the whole thing for many hours. Until the recent hours (at the time of this post), more than 12 hours after the fact.
This Major Unprecedented Historical event, for All Humanity, didn't even make the Top Ten Breaking News Releases in America, while China was intensely watching every moment. And so most American's for the most part didn't even know it was happening yet!
Since America today owns and controls the majority of the Global Media....there are numerous Countries people's were also not yet aware that China landed on the Moon today.
I need not provide links to reliable articles to read, as such are easily web-searched. And if/when this post is ever read in the future, there will be numerous retrospective resources of information readily available on the net, to help make this Non-News Lapse more deeply understood.
As any future people will well know China landed on the Moon on Dec 14th, 2013.... The purpose of this thread is to record the News reality of the American News of this day.
"News" being defined as something normally reserved to inform people of that which may be considered important, distinctly unusual, historical, Politically important, earth changing, etc.
What was the American Mainstream Headline News Stories of Dec 14th, 2013? The Day China first softly landed a spacecraft on the Moon.
I started to compile such here below, and surprisingly, the "Breaking" News Stories began to change in real-time as I was posting the Media Headlines in order of listing. They went from having No mention of China's Lunar landing being included in the News Headlines, 12 hours after the fact, to a some Media adding News Releases in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th listing of Headline importance.
hmmmm, I think now in retrospect this thread will seem rather odd. Having little importance. But while it was intriguing to me to watch the US Media display a pausing resistance to post Headline News of this event, which they well knew was happening hours before publishing anything about it.
If it were a US Lunar lander, we North Americans all know from experience, that it would have been Headline News for days Leading up to the landing. And the #1 Headline News Story in all Media Sources and Talk Shows.
But ironically, at the time of this post-edit, this opinion piece is all already old news.
C'est la Vie.
