Well in all fairness Newsboy, how long did it take for it to be announced/admitted to, last time?
How many 24 hour news channels were there in 1986? How good were the Communist Party in the USSR at keeping info to themselves? How many journalists could have gotten that info out in realtime under the circumstances then even if they did know?
We now live in a completely different news environment. Live broadcasts, e-mail, satellite phones etc etc. The chances of a major story such as this if it were to occur, not being on the newswires in the space of an hour in todays mediacentric world are highly unlikely.
....and i'm not seeing anything anywhere.
