Bolden: Page 19. “I don’t read the blogs. You all can read them. You know all they do is just upset my day so I don’t read them, and you read them if you want. I know what you’re doing. You know what you’re doing, and you don’t need anybody else to tell you, you know, what you’re doing and the quality of your work. So if you want to go read somebody who’s going to be critical of you everyday, have at it. I don’t recommend it. If you need that, that’s okay.”
Bolden: Page 30: “I was in Prague. Let me tell you why I tell you don’t read the blogs okay? You can. I can’t stop you.”
Keith’s note: NASA MSFC PAO has decided not to post this for the rest of NASA and taxpayers to read.
It is fascinating how Charlie Bolden can claim not to read “the blogs” yet his staff certainly do – as do White House and Congressional staff. Yet he always seems to know what they say. Meanwhile he continues to be afraid to speak on the record with the media and/or to have details of his official trips to Saudi Arabia, Nepal, and China made public.
If you refuse to talk to anyone outside of closed doors, how else are people going to know what you are doing if they don’t read “the blogs” Charlie?
