It is interesting to note that CNN.com has attached a specific date to the next launch ("Late Next Week") while FoxNews.com has the flight delayed "Indefinitely." Obviously NASA has to get the fuel sensor fixed in order to get the Shuttle flying safely. However, one news story provides a specific date while the other doesn't. One offers hope, the other doesn't. Assuming that CNN represents the "left" and Fox the "right," I must confess ignorance about Fox's angle on this story. Are they being more pessimistic or more realistic? I must confess that I like CNN's space coverage better, just because there's more of it. I just felt that the story titles were telling in their differences; the question is, what are they telling?
