As my grandpa would say, "Great day in the morning!". To this
day I've never heard him use one cuss word and he's now in his
90's, lived through WWI and fought in WWII and raised my mom. If
anyone deserved to cuss he does but doesn't. I do enough cussin'
for the past 3 generations and that's why I didn't watch last
night's NBC Dateline special. I don't know how many times I've
said on this list in bold letters, well not really bold but
emphasized as if they were, that to never, ever, trust the
mainstream news media regarding UFOs! How many times do I have
to say this?

During the infamous Peter Jennings special I warned everyone but
it fell on deaf ears. People were made fools of by Jenning's
irresponsible leadership.

How many of the investigators and researchers on this List has
ever worked for a mainstream news service and seen what happens
behind the scenes? I can raise my hand, how many more?

I've spent the majority of my life in and around mainstream news
and not only that, I was there on two occasions when huge UFOs
flew right over our newspaper with multiple witnesses and no
news! Hudson Valley UFOs? Folks I was there dead center, ground
zero, up close and then some!

That lame excuse about a bunch of ultralights from Stormville
airport is true in part. There were ultralights flying around.
No doubt about that at all because you could hear them from
miles away with those loud ass engines.

I was in the newsroom when the reporter did the investigation. I
still talk to him to this day. Matter of fact I was the first
person to get the first photos of the big V-shaped craft from a
high school pal who took the pics while in the presence of other
friends including law enforcement and technical experts.

The Hudson Valley UFO incidents, and emphasis on the plural, are
the biggest conspiracy in UFOs since Roswell. The only
difference is that they've been going on for decades in plain
site and there was a time you couldn't avoid seeing the various
craft in that area.

Attributing every UFO report in the region to ultralight fliers
is incompetence, and laziness, and outright lying through their
teeth, and I'm so pissed they're still playing this game that if
one of those jerks ever said that to me about ultralights I'd
probably punch their lights out on the spot.

For cryin' out loud, we're on our second generation of

I was there I tell you. This crap has ruined many people's lives
and even though I'll admit that_some_ of the sightings were
aircraft both civilisn and military, not _all_ are. No way in
heck or highwater.

These lies and downright stupid investigations that the press
puts out is unfathomable to me to what depths they'll stoop to
undermine us all. Let this be a lesson to the well heeled, if
the press can screw up these investigations, how many more
issues are coming at us with such incompetence?

Timed well and another invalidation strategy? Vatican lightened
up this week and the U.K.s UFO files came forth. MUFON released
it's Texas UFO sightings report too.

I know the pattern, I know the drills. I'm not on any talk shows
so maybe that's why my voice is just a whistle in the dark but I
did check my website stats at my ufomafia.com blog and lo and
behold TIME Magazine linked to my blog! Don't know why but they
did. Go figure.

There's even some mystery about that too.

So more disappointment from the mainstream media? Like what did
you expect? The public doesn't believe these news clowns anyway.

I got my learning experience back in the 80's when Chernobyl
went up and the AP Laserphoto machine at our news office spit
out a dozen or so close_up photos from the scene of a saucer
maneuvering around the building. Those pics were confiscated
from me by our managing editor and I'll swear to that in court.
Not 'what I interpreted to be a saucer', it was a saucer in the
most clear photos of one I've ever seen.

End to that mystery.

So don't hold your breath for the U.S. news media to do a job
right because they can't!
