How to identify fake news, any so-called news pedaled as science, from Washington Post:

The history of the Doomsday Clock as it moves closer to ‘midnight’

and New York Times

Doomsday Clock Moves Closer to Midnight, Signaling Concern …

Yet no mention of the 1963 crisis where two national leaders, John Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev playing a fame of chicken with nuclear weapons, from  Investor’s Business Daily:

“Closer to ‘Doomsday’ Than Any Year Since ’59” screams the headline in the Huffington Post.


The story, and many others like it, point to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ famous “Doomsday Clock,” which is supposed to be a reliable indicator of the risk the world faces of a nuclear war.

Plus, does anyone really believe we are 64% closer to global destruction today than we were during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962?

Funny white the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists lauds the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, hat tip \ to Ronald Reagan, but omits its construction, hats tips to Nikita Khrushchev and John F. Kennedy,.
