Fernbank Science Center & Fernbank Museum mixed up in racial discrimination news story

Local Science Center & Museum mixed up in racial discrimination news story

A damaging mistake was made in the local news here in Atlanta yesterday evening (9/2/2010).

Fernbank Museum was incorrectly identified as the target of racial discrimination lawsuit, when in fact the subject of the story was Fernbank Science Center.  Fernbank Museum has been receiving calls and e-mails regarding the confusion and are actively trying to clear things up as Fernbank Museum is not the facility involved.

This is an unfortunate situation and will hopefully get resolved soon.  According to local Atlanta news station WSB-TV, Fernbank Science Center is being accused of racial discrimination against children.

I have not had time to research the situation in detail so please refer to linked materials for more information.

I think Fernbank Museum should use this incident to boost their fund raising by suing the station for millions. They would be justified in doing so.
