Ummm...let's see if I can think of one beef... Oh yeah, how about losing or destroying all the original video footage shot on the moon by the Apollo
Either NASA is lying about that (Which is what I suspect.), or they are the most incompetent government agency in the history of mankind!
It's no mystery to me why people distrust NASA.
There is a third possibility you should open your mind to.
Your mind is full of delusional, malicious fantasies.
First, the astronauts never shot 'video footage' on the Moon. They had one still camera, and a 16-mm cine camera set up in the LM window, running
automatically -- whose images still exist and are fully available.
Second, no scenes from ANYWHERE are gone -- all televised video recorded during live transmission exists and is available.
SOME sequences of the live TV during the initial crew descent to the surface were recorded both at the receiving site in Australia, and then
converted live to US TV format and rebroadcast there immediately -- and recorded, permanently and openly.
The original signal was recorded, and folks there recall it looked sharper than the converted images. THOSE recordings came up missing. But these are
the same activities ALSO observed by the 16-mm cine camera, which showed them in even GREATER detail than either TV format.
The reality here differs greatly from common myths. Make this a 'teachanble moment' and dispel delusions that have polluted your mind.
None of this substracts from possible substantive criticisms of NASA.
Then, of course, there's THIS idiot:

Did you believe them when they claimed to "lose" the original Apollo 11 landing tapes? Would even an idiot do that? Would even an idiot believe they
were "lost"? Not this idiot.
