Not much info yet, but Yonhap tends to be a trustworthy source. Will be keeping an eye on this.

From CBS News:

North Korea attempted to launch a missile that is believed to have failed, a U.S. official confirmed to CBS News. The official said the missile was not an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which North Korea has claimed to possess but has never successfully tested. It’s unclear why the missile failed. The Yonhap news agency in South Korea first reported the failed launch, citing the South Korean military.

Well, that was the shortest news story I've ever read as it's just a headline. Hopefully this will be just nothing. Thanks for finding this.

Are you sure? It's working fine for me. There is just the title on the news yet, though, as that's something they do on that website. As the story develops they update it, for now there's just an (END) on it.

Channel 9 Morning news in Australia just had it as a breaking bulletin.

So somethings happened.

Don't wait for a biased source, it's clear that if anything big happens we'll all be here debating links while the world burns.

Years back.. we'd be ahead of the news, now we sit and wait for our masters to tell us what to think.. sad..

Here's a link from Reuters confirming:

ETA: About 4 other posters came up with additional sources while I was fumbling around with this post, so it's not nearly as meaningful as I thought it was going to be!

I wouldn't be surprised if the U.S. didn't hack into their launch codes. I guess Kim lost his thunder today. Instead he had to settle for a parade of mocked up missiles.

No way would they allow a failure to be reported.

Fake news.
