THEY'RE HEERE (4-Star NYPost Review Praises Peter Jennings for Exposing Govít UFO Coverup)
NY Post ^ | February 23, 2005 | LINDA STASI

Posted on 02/23/2005 7:11:28 AM PST by dead

WHY would a serious journalist like Peter Jennings tackle a silly subject like UFOs? Maybe it's because 40 million Americans can't be wrong. It turns out that 40 million of us have claimed to have seen UFOs, while half — yes, half — of all Americans believe in their existence… < snip >

So, why, if millions of people have seen UFOs, are the eyewitnesses immediately reduced to the level of raving loonies (from "lunar")? Interestingly enough, that is the legacy of another successful government PR campaign…< snip >

The feds thought they could keep a lid on UFO sightings and keep a budding worldwide panic under control by making witnesses look crazy. Yes, it seems you could fool all of the people all of the time… < snip >

Good for Jennings for reaching for the stars!

Linda Stasi is the NY Post's liberal television reviewer.

She probably always assumed that UFOs were not real and people who thought they were real were nuts. But then Peter Jennings told her otherwise, so now she knows better.

Aliens will never control the minds of earth's liberals, because network television won't share power.

So this is supposed to be an expose showing that UFOs are actually interstellar craft?

What would we do without Peter Jennings? [/sarcasm]

Just damn.

If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...

More death of the MSM.

BatBoy on Dan Rather is next.

Actually, these type of "reports" are probably a step up for network news.

Art Bell to replace Rather.

Peter Jennings: UFOs are real and the Democratic Party is out to help the little guy. Trust me.

And some will.

In all fairness to Jennings, he likely has had documents from the 70s faxed to him that strongly indicate the existence of UFOs.

There was UFO stuff on the history channel all weekend.

There are UFO's. Unidentified Flying Objects. Everything you see in the sky that you do not know what it is is, by definition "unidentified".

The question is, are they our's, china's, russia or alien in nature.

The SR-71 was flying for 30 years before the government acknowledged it and I am sure, most of the aircraft we see is expermental US or man-made.

I did not see the show so did they prove the aircraft were alien or "off-world" or simply that the government will not tell us what they are building.

Well, that's proof enough for me!

Maybe it's because 40 million Americans can't be wrong.

Sure they can. About 50 million of them voted for Kerry last November, didn't they? Well, OK, 40 million plus 10 million deceased or fake.

The History Channel, Discovery, and TLC tend to go with lots of UFOs and ghosts during sweeps months.

Interestingly, at one time the Government took this stuff fairly seriously, contrary to their public pronouncements. Of course, they also ran experiments to determine if psychics could detect Soviet missile subs, so take that for what you will.
