More Major Media Retreating on Space Journalism….

Long-time space correspondent Miles O’Brien is leaving CNN as the U.S.-based cable network shuts down its science, space, environment and technology unit. Miles has covered NASA and many shuttle launches. This decision follows Aviation Week’s decision to close down its Cape Canaveral bureau and to lay off veteran space journalists Craig  Couvalt and Dave Hughes.

All I can say is: Good luck. It’s tough out there. Maybe it’s a good time for these guys to write memoirs. They’ve certainly been witness to interesting events.
