NASA and CNN Get The Dark Side Of The Moon Thing Wrong - Again

From a Million Miles Away, NASA Camera Shows Moon Crossing Face of Earth, NASA (2015)

"A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a unique view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth last month. The series of test images shows the fully illuminated "dark side" of the moon that is never visible from Earth."

Keith's note: Ok, putting aside the inaccurate nomenclature for a moment, NASA, if the "dark side" is "fully illuminated" then its not the "dark side", right?
