Under Reported News: Chinese Submarine Stumbles into US Naval Exercise

I've seen very few US news sources reporting this story. A Chinese submarine surfaced within shooting distance of a US aircraft carrier during a naval exercise. Chinese officials "dismissed the affair as coincidence."
The lone Chinese vessel slipped past at least a dozen other American warships which were supposed to protect the carrier from hostile aircraft or submarines.

The incident, which took place in the ocean between southern Japan and Taiwan, is a major embarrassment for the Pentagon.

Analysts believe Beijing was sending a message to America and the West demonstrating its rapidly-growing military capability to threaten foreign powers which try to interfere in its "backyard".

Go ahead, search for this story. I get 11 hits, many of which aren't about this incident. Yeah, this sounds way less important than a has-been pop star running a red light, which gets hundreds of hits.

Wasnt there something with the US doing the same thing recently?
