Is Google News perfect? Machines will never best human brains in delivering the news, as the automatically generated portal's coverage of the Columbia disaster suggested. A couple hours after mission control lost contact with the shuttle and pieces of debris streaked like comets through the sky, this was the leading headline on Google News, with a link to a three-hour-old story from the Washington Post:
"Columbia streaks toward landing"

Also, note the spiritual tone of both the Reagan Challenger speech and Bush Columbia speech.
