Up front Mr. Clarke, I must say that I do respect what you have
done with the National Archives. It certainly was a worth while
accomplishment and I offer my gratitude.

Given your level of knowledge and the work you have done in the
UFO field you must know that national media coverage of
unexplained aerial phenomenon has been sporadic and sometimes
tongue-in-cheek. Too often, the general public is not presented
with the facts in an objective and authoritative way.

According to researchers, elements of the US and UK governments
have used standard methods of censorship and propaganda as well
as covert ties to well-known news organizations in an attempt to
hide the existence of UFOs from the public.

I do not consider myself a UFO expert. I am versed in the
subject and have conducted research. I would however consider
myself a UFO activist. In that vein, I believe it is imperative
that journalist, such as you, are called on issues that might be
questionable. It is likely that you are exactly as you have
categorized yourself. If that is the case, you should understand
the level of frustration felt by many in the field.

Maybe you’re correct. It might be okay to call yourself a UFO
expert. I personally believe it is a little pretentious but that
is only my opinion.

As to the spin, it may be an honest difference of opinion. I do
not prefer spin even to make something more interesting or
newsworthy, but I see your point.

I concur with your opinion that UFOlogy disserves respectability
and that it has not been treated objectively by the media in the
past. In fact that is why I questioned some of your comments.

Holding journalists and politicians accountable is the only way
to get the whole truth. I wrote some of the organizations
running the story. I will continue to work to achieve
scientific, political and media credibility for the study of
UFOs while working for the release of official information.

Your comments are appreciated.
