Thanks Mike,

I too worked in mainstream news for decades. I can't believe it
was that long.

I'm beginning to think that only a select few newspeople are
given the real deal on UFOs and are smart enough not to cover
them except in a light hearted way.

Any other way means the unemployment line.

News in this country took a turn for the worse in the early
80's.  I was there, I saw it. It's been a controlled whore house
ever since.  It's a shame too as the crusading journalists of
the 1970's soon faded out to the corporate hush mouths and butt
kissers of the 80's and 90's.  Now the true journalists are on
websites and blogs and the people LOVE them.  Not only do the
people go to the web journalists but the ratings and advertising
revenue is the envy of the news industry.  Another goody is that
the web journalists are winning!  Often called conspiracy
theorists and tin-foil hatters, their data is proving out to be
as accurate as the mainstream and in many cases far more in

I didn't check to see if Walter Cronkite had a blog but if he
does I'll go subscribe.

I had a conversation recently with some journalist pals about
the UFO issue. It's still off topic and I was told the greatest
fear was that some blogger would break the big story and every
mainstream news service would die a rapid death because the
people of Earth would no longer trust them.  That was pretty
surprising and said to me that soon some news will break. It's a
no-win situation for the press because if they don't, someone
else will.  If they do, they have a lot of explaining to do.

Keep a fair weather eye out mateys!
