Juno arrives at Jupiter; PBS virtually ignores it



Re tonight’s PBS Newshour program (July 5, 2016):

The hour long program contained the following segments:

Hillary Clinton email scandal (latest developments)

fighting in Eastern Ukraine

Iraq bombing death toll

Freddie Gray case (Baltimore)

 how much playtime should young students get?

 Harry Potter play

 Where, I ask, was – is — coverage of the arrival today at Jupiter of the Juno spacecraft?

This not a big story?
