Whoa...hold the bus here! "Maussan is not by any stretch of the
imagination a scientist or trained/skilled researcher."?

How the heck did he get a job as top newsman for CBS then?
Unless you mean he's not a trained/skilled 'UFO' researcher.

Maussan graduated college and is a CBS boss. You don't get there
not knowing how to research. It's SOP in professional journalism
and believe you me, there're enough lawyers that CBS would have
down his throat if he was half-stepping on the professional
research end.

That's why Maussan is to be held to a higher standard. If he's
made goof-ups in UFO research I wouldn't fault him a bit
considering the source and presentation of UFO data. Or maybe
he's just playing the game card which is what many journalists
do when facing an issue of questionable tactics. That way if
something goes wrong the journalist absolves the network from
liability. Old school tactic.

Maussan is known by more people than, probably Madonna, in the
spanish world. He's spent over 2 decades reporting on government
etc. and if he was that innacurate he'd have been canned a long
time ago.

Too often us Yankees poke fun at the journalists from Central
and S. America. Yet many of them venture into territory so
hostile it's almost unfathomable. Drug lords, rain forests,
gangs etc. I know cause I've been there and let me tell you, I
wouldn't go to Mexico to report on school lunches without a
platoon of Marines with me. Brazil? For-get-it! How many
journalists have been killed and tortured for trying to focus on
the drug lords? No way!

Maussan is a top journalist in a rough neighborhood. That's
gotta be tough enough.

So he may or may not have made a goof up researching UFOs.

Who hasn't???


Best,

Greg
