From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Tue, 27 Nov 2012 08:38:46 -0500 Archived: Tue, 27 Nov 2012 08:38:46 -0500 Subject: UFOs To The Ratings Rescue? - Cox Source: Billy Cox's Blog De Void http://tinyurl.com/bvvhkb4 Monday, November 26, 2012 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: http://tinyurl.com/cuy4rpq 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."
