NBC Reports Death of Astronaut Neil Young

Maybe NBC wallows in loony tunes liberal propaganda because its personnel lacks the competence required for factual reporting. For example:

NBC News was one of the first to learn of the death of astronaut Neil Armstrong on Saturday, but instead announced the death of astronaut Neil… Young.

“Astronaut Neil Young, first man to walk on moon, dies at age 82,” read the NBC News headline shortly after 3 pm EST, which was tweeted out and picked up by thousands of others before it was changed.

As a refresher, Neil Young is a 66-year-old rock star who is very much alive.

Neil Armstrong, an American hero and the first man to walk on the moon, died on Saturday a few weeks after heart surgery.

As reader Bob Roberts predicts,

Next thing you know they’ll be reporting about his cousin, Lance Armstrong, the first man to bike to the moon!

You would think even NBC people could get the facts straight on stories pertaining to the moon, being moonbats.

Maybe this explains it.

    NBC, “we just make shi* up”.

  • .
    This is the same NBC that selectively edited the George Zimmerman 911 call to “prove” that he’s a “racist”, correct?

    It’s no wonder that their ratings have plummeted like a stone.

    I remember it well. Nash and Young walked on the moon, while Crosby smoked dope in the command module. Stills had to stay home because the capsule only had three seats. Bummer.

  • AC

    Figures. Media these days cares more for entertainers than scientists or national heroes.

    The entertainment industry has become a cancer.

  • Joe, I almost wet my pants – that’s some funny shit right there!

  • Dien Cai Dau

    Hey Joe… I thought Stills couldnt go cuz he had the mumps or sumthin???

  • Jodie

    It’s sad, Crosby went to the moon and he still couldn’t make his dad proud.

  • Spot on, A.C. Agreed…

  • bobdog

    Did I just get redirected to The Onion or something?

    You can’t make this stuff up.

  • Val

    Maybe they meant that Armstrong was too young?!LOL Spin it, spin into butter!!

    I’d have rather it been Neil Young rather than Neil Armstrong. The first being a clueless liberal hippie no-talent douchebag with minimal musical skills and a horrible voice; the latter being an accomplished pilot, astronaut, family man, and Great American.

    “Well I heard Mr. young sing about her
    Well I heard ol’ Neil put her down
    And I hope Neil Young will remember
    A Southern Man don’t need him around anyhow…”

    I believe the problem with NBC is they hire ex-employees of fast food restaurants, most of whom are graduates of the American academic system.

    Can’t you just picture the twerp that made up that web page: rings through his/her nose, tattoos in places the sun don’t shine, and other unmentionable body modifications?

    Not even Armstrong was on the moon. No problem reporting Young was on the moon too.

  • smokeclay

    Back in the day, the USSR news agency never reported our successes in space. They always seemed to go down the dismissing and mocking road. They firmly planted themselves in our MSM and Hollywood without firing a shot. I can’t even duck and cover.

    I thought the late David Crosby had eaten most of the moon being all it’s all green cheesy like….

    I think Neil Young has taken enough LSD to allow himself to astrally PROJECT himself to the moon. No rocket needed.

  • Nathaniel M

    Oops my bad…. Crosby still lives! duh…

  • dan

    Like ,far-out man…how do you suppose he played his trumpet with a space helmet on, man

  • B Hussein Da Da, President for Life

    wait a minute, I was the first to walk on the moon!!! I had birth cert forger make a certificate to say so…….

  • James McEnanly

    The reporter who wrote that probably hadn’t been born when Armstrong made his ‘one small step’, nor when Harrison Schmitt left the Moon on Apollo 17.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if the latter weren’t addressed as ‘Harrison Ford’ when his comes.

  • russ cornell

    I am surprised they didn’t say the great one, Obama was the first to walk on the moon.
