Subject: Apology To Carol Rainey For Defamatory Statements

A prominent Paracast forum poster has apologized to filmmaker
Carol Rainey for defamatory remarks he made about her recent
articles and videos about abduction research. (The same poster
had for many months made defamatory statements about myself on
the same forum.) 'Archie Bedford', a research subject and friend
of both Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs, repeatedly claimed that
he knew Rainey very well, that he'd been with her recently and
was very aware of her filmmaking tactics and her motives.

It wasn't until Rainey learned 'Archie Bedford's' real identity
and profession and contacted him twice that 'Archie' reluctantly
apologized on the Paracast forum for his inappropriate claims.
He posted on 3/16/11:

"While I have met Carol Rainey a few times, I really don't know
her that well. So I shouldn't have claimed to know her
motivations; in the end only God knows anyone's motivations... I
guess this subject was a bit too close to me personally to be
really objective, and an internet chat forum is not the place
for that discussion. I hope I didn't offend anyone, and that
includes Carol Rainey!"


Rainey replied: "My path crossed 'Archie's' only _once, in
passing, for 5-10 minutes in October 2010 when he was visiting
my former husband Budd Hopkins... I was running around with pans
under the leaking radiator. I don't recall saying a word to
"Archie" other than hello.


The actions of the Paracast forum owner, Gene Steinberg, and
moderators in moderating these events resulted in Paul Kimball
cutting ties with the Paracast, as he outlined on his The
Other Side Of Truth' blog:


'Archie Bedford' added that he's taking a break from the
forums for a while.
