Talk: UFOs: The Media Credibility Factor — Who Do You Believe?
Ever since the 1947 Roswell Daily Record changed its story from how the military had captured a “flying saucer” to a “weather balloon,” mainstream media has come up short in its coverage of the UFO phenomenon. From weather inversions, swamp gas, kites, Chinese lanterns, and many other explanations for UFOs, this presentation will look at some of the more infamous cases in which the media just didn’t get it right and also offer reasons why and how to do it better in the future. Lee Speigel is a writer and reporter for the AOL / Huffington Post Media Group and a former writer and host of nearly 1,500 programs about UFOs and unexplained phenomena, spanning eight years on NBC Radio.
