>Clinton Library Offers Peek At UFO Files

>By Andrew DeMillo
>Associated Press Writer

>LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - In a move sure to provide fodder for

>documents recently released at a UFO buff's request.

Journalism Rule #1 for writing UFO articles: Make sure to work
in agitprop phrases like "conspiracy theorists" in the first
sentence whenever possible. The author gets extra points for
also using "UFO buffs" in the same sentence. For some reason, he
left out "little green men." I guess even profressional AP
reporters can't cover all the bases in a single article.

I noticed that this article mentions John Podesta, but not that
he was actually involved with Leslie Kean's efforts to extract
information on UFOs from the government. Googling on the search
terms "Podesta" and "UFO" are enough to discover that. But I
guess they didn't cover that in this reporter's journalism
school.

The article also didn't mention that Clinton aide Webster Hubble
said that Clinton tried to get information from intelligence
agencies on UFOs but got no cooperation from them.


Of course, referring to those kinds of facts might lead the
reader to some conclusion that the author did not wish to
convey, him being a serious "journalist" and all.
