That being said, an attempted coup in the USA is nothing to be sniffed at. Apart from being (allegedly - personally I disagree) the "world's greatest democracy", the "special relationship" between the USA and UK and the fact that the ongoing US Election saga is probably the number two story in the world right now, merits a bit more than the UK broadcasters did. I don't necessarily think that abandoning scheduled programmes for rolling news would have been the right thing to do. However, I do think a quick newsflash to highlight the story and promote the news channels and/or late news bulletins wouldn't have gone amiss.
