story is incorrect
"The CEG gave four agencies -- the Department of Defense, Securities and Exchange Commission, Department of Transportation, and Department of the Treasury -- a failing grade because they missed most of the criteria for their websites, specifically having weak electronic reading rooms."  Actually, these agencies did not receive an overall failing grade, as indicated in the chart and your earlier sentence, "Only eight agencies passed, earning grades of 60 or more out of 100 points."  These agencies did receive a failing grade in one or two of the performance areas.
