 >>Fox in Focus! UFOs: Proof of Life?

 >>Saturday October 5 at 11 p.m. ET and Sunday, October 6 at 4 a.m. ET
 >>Hosted by Rick Folbaum

 >>From the first moment we looked up at the stars, we've wondered
 >>if there is life beyond our planet. Over the years, an entire
 >>sub-culture has grown up to study the phenomena - They call
 >>themselves "Ufologists" and Fox in Focus examines their most
 >>compelling stories and tapes from around the world. From the
 >>convincing to the bizarre, UFOs: Proof of Life? reveals both the
 >>science and the fiction behind the headlines.

 >>For those of you who would like to go even further beyond the

 >>Pamela Stonebrooke claims to have had a sexual relationship with
 >>an extra-terrestrial. Her story is that one night, she woke up
 >>and found herself making love to a gorgeous man. This man, then
 >>transformed into a reptilian being. Stonebrooke, aka the
 >>"Intergalactic Diva" is now a professional singer in the Los
 >>Angeles area and has written a book about her alien encounters.
 >>The book is called: Experiencer: A Jazz Singer's True Account
 >>of Extraterrestrial Contact.

Hi Scott,

Here's a critique of the show from another List. You may find it
interesting.....

I have permission from the writer of the review for it to be
posted with his name. He's Bob VanDerClock and his email is:

almike13juno@aol.com

Bob is ex-military, an author and a hard working UFO researcher,
especially regarding Roswell.

Hi Art and List,

My upcoming lecture sponsors clued me in about this show so I
watched it and taped it as well.

My pros and cons on the show:

Cons first:

Way too much emphasis on the exploitation factor...who cares how
many little green men trinkets are sold? Besides there are
capitalists looking to exploit every known form of PSI, that's a
given, so it should 've been given courtesy mention only.

The Army's Project Mogul "disclosure" was in 1994 (9/8/94 to be
exact) not 1995.

The first use of crash test dummies was in 1953 not 1954.

Poor coverage of "The Air Force's first UFO Investigation,
Project BlueBook" (wrong) and no mention of the famous Bolender
Memo (1969, just weeks before BlueBook closed ) saying that
national-security related UFO incidents (quote) "Are not part of
the BlueBook system".

I sent an e mail to FoxNews .com and ridiculed them for what
they DIDN'T tell you about Walter Haut; that an 80 year old
General Roger Ramey told Haut, years after, that the materials
found at the Roswell crash were "not from this
world"...shouldn't THAT critical anecdote have been mentioned,
given Haut's only other involvement at all was issuing 1947
press releases to the local media and becoming a cofounder of
the Roswell UFO Museum?

Fox tried to put 100 pounds into a five pound bag....covering a
tsunami of UFO topics while providing in depth detail on almost
none of them.

No mention of Colonel Corso whatsoever....seems Eisenhower's
National Security Advisor's comments on Roswell might have just
been "relevant"? No mention of the extraordinary comments of Top
Secret Canadian engineer Wilbert Brockhouse Smith, Corso's chief
Roswell contact and whose amazing 1950 Classified paper relating
to Geomagnetics was just released in its entirety only weeks
ago. No mention of Dr. Robert Sarbacher who was Smith's main US
Gov't contact on all of this. Scant mention of pilot-related UFO
encounters, some 3600 of which are documented, with more coming.

Bothering to even mention a sex-related claim from a jazz
singer...typical FOX "titillate" factor...poor judgement on the
producer's part.

No mention of Friedman, Randle, Schmidt, or Good,some of the
best UFO researchers around, and therefore bereft of their many
years of expertise on the subject.

No mention of what happened when a legal case regarding the
existence of UFOs nearly went to the Supreme Court (1983) and
how the Fed. District Court Judge, initially in favor of
disclosure, changed mid-case and supported suppression of same.

No mention of what happened when an American Professor sued the
NSA/CIA on clearly Constitutional grounds regarding disclosure
of the books on the "Black Budget" and how the entire case
somehow "switched" and ended up the NSA suing the Professor for
the right to suppress...which the NSA won, of course.

The pros;

Decent coverage of the Alien Implant problem being investigated
by Dr. Roger Leir.

Fair mention of the Roswell Museum though again too much
emphasis on their "Gift Shoppe" and not enough of what the
facility represents.

Fairly generous review of abductions, Budd Hopkins, etc.

Good mention of the Edwards AFB Incident, 1965... but why not
have Chuck Sorrells, who lived it at the time, come on and
relate his remembrances?

They covered the 1961 Hill couple's abduction case reasonably
well but in so doing, totally blew the opportunity to reveal
that Betty Hill of the famous abduction case of 1961 was given a
"Star System" chart by her captors and this module was
eventually verified completely by astronomer Marjorie Fish...
pretty important point since Betty knew about nothing of
Astronomy prior.

The telecast was in my view NOT connected in any way to
government disinformation and in that regard I praise FOX.

Generally a balanced presentation all around but I wish Philip
Klass the great debunker had been on...lately he has been
inadvertently exposing his true nature and I would've enjoyed a
few laughs at his expense.

They rightly stayed away from too much "Space Cadet-Conspiracy
Buff" stuff.

I would've liked the whole sandwich instead of about a third of
it, but the effort was ok... have seen far worse.

Cheers

Dave
