As journalism confronts an unprecedented opportunity
Billy I also think it's time you stepped up to the plate and put together a non-fiction book proposal on the subject. Jeez, all your DeVoid and Life in Jonestown work could serve as the basis for chapters. You could call it UAP For Dummies (that's a joke) and bring the public up on all the issues your readers know about through your work. You could probably knock it out in a month or two. Bryce Zabel (sorry to volunteer you) could probably hook you up with a literary agent. This is a hot topic and you could sell it easily. Just some unsolicited advice here from a fan.
I can remember Leslie Kean telling her FB followers the exposure Tucker was giving to the issue was beneficial and shouldn't be viewed as political. Clearly such sentiments won't fly now. Tucker could be handed the entire story and run with it and more than half the country wouldn't buy it. The Who's Who of UAP legitimacy should steer clear of Fox. LE, Mellon and others who have appeared on Tucker may prompt other reporters into NOT chasing the story. Do you think someone at the Times, WaPo, 60 Minutes, Frontline or other serious outlets want to be asked if they're chasing a Tucker Carlson story? I know it's not that simple but reporters/editors/producers have egos too and would check out a sources's clips and may be turned off by the Fox pieces.
brilliant piece with a few chuckles too
nice work Billy!
This piece is a perfect example of why partisanship and the UFO/ET topic do not mix.
It doesn't matter which side of the aisle a Congressman or Senator sits on, they're still going to be stymied by the intel agencies. Which will never publicly or privately disclose what they really know about the phenomenon to the politicians due to "national security" reasons.
They're statist sociopaths who above all else have to control the narrative. And if you want to see how real journalists get treated nowadays, look no further than what happened to Matt Taibbi and Michael Shellenberger yesterday.
Another great analysis piece.
Who are "the real reporters in Washington"?
Which other popular journalists in the US are putting hours into the UFO topic? I see Brian Bender has moved on to pastures new and Steven Greenstreet obviously covers it more from the angle of addressing grift and disinfo.
