Mainstream media has historically cast a crooked eye on UFO stories, sightings, and its community of researchers. The stories have been relegated to the end of the newscasts as the anchors smile and shake their heads. It’s not just the media. Hollywood holds a large part too. With its constant barrage of “aliens attacking mankind scenarios,” it’s easy to understand how this view is so easily accepted.

It's Paradigm Research Group (PRG) executive director Steve Bassett's job to be optimistic about "the ongoing collapse of the truth embargo on formal acknowledgment of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race."
That's how he put it in his September 30 PRG press release, a reference, in part, to the widespread and uncharacteristically sober mainstream media coverage of Robert Hastings and Robert Sala's September 27 press conference at the National Press Building in Washington, DC.
In case you missed Technorati's coverage of it, the press conference was held to focus media attention on decades of UFO interference with U.S. military nuclear weapons installations. UFO researcher Robert Hastings and former U.S. Air Force Captain Robert Salas organized the conference, which included presentations made by seven former USAF personnel.
