10 Close Encounters
There are two primary possibility's that can account for the wretched shameful excuse for real journalism, that the NBC Dateline special aired on 5-18- 08 on 10 UFO cases can represent. Either causation is damning and reflects a colossal failure of standards and practices of real journalism.
An explanation is an indictment. If the news story was a real and sincere attempt to get the truth on UFOs the entire staff should be either fired with investigation into hiring practices or
the current editor find another line of work, such as reporting professional wrestling.
Why when the reporting topic is UFOs and strange lights in the sky, that a high majority of journalists mind and usual due diligence, fly out the window or fall to the ground?
Why when UFO's are discussed a strange new form of zero based journalism does occur? Previous UFO research from books, or a hundred analogic cases , or numerous prior
instances that are building blocks of the current cases vanish. Previous decades largely disappear, a broader context is missing.
Imagine a mathematics class , where one kept going over and over, and over,
the first few pages, on real numbers, rational, irrational, and every time, every day's
lesson was the essentially the same as the previous days . The class iterated over
and over what a number was, and operation's on those numbers, even on the two
hundreth attempt, never got past one plus one or the associative or commutative laws.
This simplifies the journalist process immensely, since there virtually no history
is laid out. Such as looking into the evidence that there was a small fleet of specially
equipped OV-10 acrobatic very quiet small observation aircraft that were based
at Steward AFB and that this operation was logistically related to CIA Operations.
Was this related to an attempt to add noise to the UFO signal?
What about the convenient timely appearance of this fleet AFTER BIG DELTA incidents?
Were there flares dropped after UFOs appeared?
Is this a watch the "flare'' birdies decoy operation?
At this rate we'll be stuck in this same futile circular and mockery of real journalism ---
ten years from now.
When is a serious national security beat reporter goingto truly bite into this,
seeing the magnitude of the event and activity and corpus of evidence?
One that will fight for resources and priority and when this goes up the management
and ownership chain, there is one owner somewhere at a network, major news magazine
cable giant, that has courage plus and will say "the evidence merits a full court press, that
will bet the company on busting this, go all out, flat out, enlisting added reporters
on a large heavy hitter team.
