Transcript of Comments Made by Editor Keith Cowing on CNN's Space Shuttle Launch Coverage

"... perhaps they need to hire some media types and teach them a little engineering, somewhere in the mix you might a better explanation for things. Oftentimes it's [not] NASA's technical abilities, [but] it's ability to relate, not only decisions it's made but also what it's doing and why that's important to a broader audience. So this is a bigger and more long-term problem that NASA's had -- communicating clearly with the public."
