UFOs To The Ratings Rescue?
by Billy Cox

The newsroom at Fox31 in Denver was so stunned by the response
its UFO coverage provoked on Nov. 8 that it actually did a
followup:

last week. "We've heard from hundreds of people from all over
the world", Ron Zappolo, the buoyed anchor, told viewers.

But really? Seriously? Surprised at worldwide interest in UFOs
when the acronym search dings 234 million hits on Google?
Granted, that's only a fraction of the 3 billion-plus returns
tallied by punching "sex" into the search engine, but hey,
"UFOs" beat "Jesus" by a whopping 83 million.

De Void's guessing the response was due to the fact that Fox31,
aka KDVR-TV, actually made an effort to apply a little journalism
to the mystery. And KDVR was so stoked it shared the emails and
voice messages and photos that came rolling in after Heidi
Hemmat's initial report. Clearly, the volume and intensity of
the feedback threw her for a loop.

"People have questioned my journalistic integrity," she remarked
during the followup. "People either believe it or they don't or
they think I'm just a jerk who's out there, y'know, shooting
flies and making it up and telling people it's UFOs, but I'm
not."
