CSI Skeptic Robert Sheaffer Doubts The U.S. Government Uses The
Media To Debunk UFOs
By Robert Hastings

In a recent blog post, Robert Sheaffer, a leading spokesman for
the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI), apparently dismisses
the idea that the U.S. government might be using the media to
help debunk UFOs. However, those who have actually studied the
facts say otherwise. Anyone wishing to have an informed view
about all of this should read the definitive expos=E9 on the
subject, journalist Terry Hansen=92s The Missing Times: News Media
Complicity in the UFO Cover-up, which has just been republished
as an e-book.

While the CIA=92s infiltration of mainstream news organizations,
to serve its own purposes, was first divulged during the U.S.
Senate=92s Church Committee hearings in 1975, and further exposed
by The Washington Post=92s Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein two
years later, Hansen credibly documents decades-long efforts by
the intelligence community and the Pentagon to spin or suppress
objective media coverage=97in both news and entertainment
programming=97directly relating to the UFO phenomenon.

Significantly, Hansen discusses in detail information suggesting
a government infiltration of Sheaffer=92s own group by persons
whose motives are other than their publicly-stated skepticism of
UFOs. CSI (formerly known as the Committee for the Scientific
Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, or CSICOP) has a
well-established track record of attempting to influence media
coverage of the phenomenon, ostensibly for =93rational=94 and
=93scientific=94 reasons. Hansen proposes that this is merely a
smokescreen and writes:
