Subject: Chat with Alan Boyle, Editor MSNBC's Space News


MSNBC sees over 3.8 million hits a day according
to recent 3rd party audits and perhaps one of the
most popular sections is the Space News division
headed up by Alan Boyle.  Boyle brings an acute
awareness of the public's need for truth and quick
information to his role in presenting the news.

In his recent audio interview with the UFO Forum,
(available now at http://forums.msn.com/ufo)
he discusses how valuable the internet has been
in presenting instant feedback from the general
audience.  However, as we pointed out, is this a
two edged sword?  When incorrect information
gets rushed out in order to satisfy our needs, can
it damage our understanding of what is truly going
on in one of the most influential yet controversial
portions of modern science?
