Phone home." Yes. Really. That's how the San Jose Mercury News chose to lead its coverage of this week's Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington. Simple. Predictable as an Ambien yawn. And with a local peg to boot: a retired California congresswoman sitting on a panel expressly convened to hear evidence of - quote - an "extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race". On Tuesday, Day 2 of the mock congressional hearings, Woolsey's CHoD colleague, former Maryland Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, was already torqued by the media's handling of this thing. As apparently tireless Huffington Post blogger Lee Spiegel reported, Bartlett read a piece that chided him and five other former elected officials for getting $20K to hear the witnesses testify. "That's just insulting, that we can be bought for $20,000 - that's ridiculous!" Bartlett bristled over the article. "It goes on to say that...'former member Roscoe Bartlett, in an opening statement, Bartlett said he hadn't fulfilled his duty in office by failing to hold hearings on extraterrestrials...' I NEVER SAID THAT!... I never said that I believed in extraterrestrials. I believe that there are sightings out there that cannot be easily explained away." Umm, dude - unexplained sightings are not the premise of organizer Steve Bassett's gathering. Let's read his website's wording again: "The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race will attempt to accomplish what the Congress has failed to do for forty-five years =96 seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time."
