I suggest that if it were simply 'self cover-up' as a function
of the reporters' individual personalities, you'd see a 'bell
curve' variation among articles about ufology.

I'm certainly no expert, but from the articles I see posted here
and in the limited mainstream media I view or read, there is
really not much variation. "Little green men" seems to appear
in a large majority of mainstream articles, for example..

One would expect a few really good articles laying out the very
best evidence, a few real stinkers ridiculing everything
ufological, and quite a few middle of the road articles.

Has there been on this List any discussion of a mainstream
article laying out the very best cases, in meat and potatoes
detail? If there aren't _any_, is it logical to think that,
gosh, darn, gee, ufology just always seems to get assigned to
reporters with self cover-up personality traits? For _60_ years?

And looking outside of ufology, there are instances where the
mainstream media clearly has cover-up agendas in place. So a
cover-up conspiracy in regard to ufology is not far fetched at
all, and seems to this observer as business as usual.
