Because, as usual, the MSM screws up anything resembling science. It is the first video from the GRAIL probe, not the first video from the far side (there is no "dark side") of the Moon.

I don't think they were actually referring to the Moon.
The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

It's FoxNews. How many of their regulars are going to know better?

What I wanna know is:
- Why do we always see the same side of the moon?
- Is this side heavier?
- Has it ever spun on any of the three axis?
- Is this the only satellite in the universe (besides man-made satellites) with this distinction (and don't they require constant minute adjustments)?
- How would "amateur astronomers" get pics of the far side of the moon?
- Is it just the edges we're talkin' about here?
- Are they taking the photos when the angle is extreme (telescope almost parallel to the ground)?
- And why can't people realize that when you have something large and bright in the center of the frame, aperture dilation is almost entirely constricted (dilated), and unable to see little tiny specs of light?

What is really funny is that what they are seeing 'fizzling out' is space debris re entry

I've spent A LOT of time watching NASA TV, footages from the ISS cameras and comparing with several other videos of NASA database, specially during Shuttle missions and it takes NO Einstein to figure out that NASA videos are severely filtered for preventing UFOs showing up, that's WHY we don't see background noise aka stars, in most of modern NASA videos. And I'm sure I'm not alone in this conclusion

I hate to burst the bubble of fun conspiracy that some of you like to create, but when you are in space taking a photo where the moon, sun, earth, floating astronaut, or anything bright like these are in the frame, the exposure setting that lets you capture them prevents the camera from recording any starlight. It is NOT edited out, or CGI... good grief.
Now what makes this film also useful is that it is filmed with the low resolution black and white camera and even when the camera points at the bright moon, you can still clearly see the stars.
