Surprise: Networks Ignore Yet Another Successful Missile Defense Test

The test had two twists: the interceptor was launched from an airplane, and the target was a two-stage missile whose warhead separated from the main missile.

So, this was new, and it was news.

The networks didn't cover it and neither, it seems, did most print outlets.

Dave in Texas did over the weekend. I guess he just doesn't understand the importance of The Narrative (TM).

Update: Newsbusters did find one network reference to the test since they first published the post. The "Today" show mentioned the test once in a 9 AM news summary.
