It’s been nearly a month since Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama formally repudiated his previous position on the Constellation program (although he had been edging away from it from months in other remarks), which means that just about everyone has heard about it, right? Apparently not at the Associated Press, which included this passage in an article about the challenges Obama would face implementing his proposals, specifically his education program:
Obama would pay for his plan by ending corporate tax deductions for CEO pay and delaying NASA’s moon and Mars missions.
Looks like the AP hasn’t gotten the memo yet. While they’re correcting that, perhaps they can also correct a similar passage in a sidebar comparing Obama’s policies with those of John McCain—and while they’re at it, add a section on space policy. Just a suggestion.
