Just a thought Jerry, but might some of the ire be down to her
status as a 'newbie' ?

In recondite areas of human endeavour there is frequently a
sense of ownership built up by semi-closed groups of enthusiast-
protagonists. Much of the self-esteem of these individuals is
based on their self-ascribed status as expert insiders. When a
perceived outsider enters the field with a new information
source or hypothesis they often meet with automatic, sometimes
visceral, rejection, not as a result of what they have to say,
but simply because of what they are.

I make this point from a position of having no position at all
on the validity or otherwise of her Roswell claims, integrity as
a journalist, sexism real or imagined etc. ...
