MSM needs patience

A story on the front page of was headlined "NASA delays shuttle launch...again." My advice to the media: lay off them. In an MBA class I remember watching a video about group think that showed how the challenger launch crew was pressured into going ahead with the launch, even though there were major concerns. The video showed a clip of Dan Rather reporting on a previous launch cancelation and being very critical of NASA for the delay. The media can't pressure NASA to launch and needs to realize that peoples' lives are at stake and safety is more important than the news cycle.
