Top Story in China vs Top Story in America

Hmmm. Youngkin and McAuliffe is certainly an intriguing race in Virginia, but at the end of the day, it's a Governor's Race, it doesn't really matter outside of Virginia. It doesn't affect the Presidency or Congress, I guess you could argue it's a bellwether race for both political parties.
I wonder what the top story in China is today?
11/2/21 9:40 AM South China Morning Post
Uh, nuclear submarine incident? That seems important.
"The US Navyon Monday said the Seawolf-class submarine USS Connecticut 'grounded on an uncharted seamount while operating in international waters in the Indo-Pacific region,' but did not say what caused the incident." - SCMP
Half of me says "international waters? China can suck it."
The other half of me says "uh-oh."
Now the South China Morning Post is a Hong Kong based publication that publishes in English. [That should be the first red flag.] But remember, many Chinese publications, in Mandarin, aren't available in Western Markets at all. I think it's curious, that on a slow news day, there seems to be a healthy amount of saber rattling coming from the Chinese government. In my head, a nuclear submarine running into underwater sea mountain seems like serious business.
You think a cartography error isn't news?
I don't know....
