Dumb Reporting

You just have to love the Nine news web ( formerly Ninemsn). Today, it carries a story about NASA planning to take civilians for a stay on the Space Station.
The report has two pictures; each one with huge NASA signs on a blue background. Each shows a speaker from NASA. Superimposed in front of each speaker is a lectern prominently labelled "Nasdaq".

Apparently the space exploration authority has teamed up with the Stock Exchange.

Edit: Someone must have received a swift kick - the item has been removed.

Sorry, but the title of this thread should be Dumb Forum Posts.

NASA is not teaming up with Nasdaq to fly people to the ISS. They did hold their press conference at Nasdaq though, hence the lectern with the Nasdaq logo on it.



Nine have not removed the item (you can see it here) because there's nothing wrong with it. But in case you don't believe it, you can watch the announcement (which begins with the words "Welcome to the Nasdaq site in New York City…") on one of NASA's own YouTube channels.

I doubt that Media Watch will be that interested in a dumb post on Railpage.

This is interesting.

The pictures put up by justapassenger are nothing like the ones I saw - both were of one person only; not a group, and there was no commentary about Nasdaq.
The entire original article did disappear from nine.com.au, and it seems that Nine has recognised dumb reporting and replaced the original with something more informative.

Edit: A check just now still has the complete item missing from nine.com.au.(the new Ninemsn)

The Nine article (which takes its text and images from the Associated Press wire service) is not missing, it is located at https://www.9news.com.au/world/us-news-space-nasa-international-space-station-holiday-travel/26a833fa-4c76-4e91-b593-a75fe1159ec8

The images on the article are clearly a zoomed in view of the same scene, not a "superimposed" lectern. Even NASA's own video of the press conference zooms in on the lectern with the speaker at the time after the initial introduction from the communications person.

All of the above is no doubt true. The truth is not in dispute. What you have told us merely emphasizes the fact that nine.com.au was bl00dy dumb reporting; exactly as I said in the first place.
