Jennings' show was just a teaser, a strong 30 minute start, then it fell flat with weak research about Roswell: no mention of high ranking military
sources on Roswell (which could have been recapped in 15-20 seconds), no mention of an actual disk, just shards of balloons and a fake-seeming strip
of symbols (why would the USAF put strange symbols on a balloon?). The worst part was putting only Budd Hopkins up as an abductions theorist, coupled
with an ambitious blonde-haired young Harvard psychologist who explained that, in her analysis, it is all nightmares and rapid eye movement moments of
waking, confused. NO MENTION OF JOHN MACK, to counter the woman, at all (pathetic).
No mention of CSETI, Corso, and NO FEATURING OF JAIME MAUSSAN'S MEXICAN METALLIC ORBS--DOZENS OF THEM IN FORMATION MOVING BEHIND CLOUDS FOR MINUTES.
It was okay on the Phoenix lights and okay on Hynek. But what about Corso, Gordon Cooper and other astronauts, Steven Greer's briefing of Clinton and
the UN Secretary General, plus the CIA chief Woolsey? No mention.
In short, we can see where Jennings' crew cut corners, maybe trying to save money, maybe playing to the narco-cabal crowd and a few dumb-struck cows
out there in TV land. When you know these subjects and can quote them off of the top of your head, Jennings' quick take looks like a local TV crew
putting together a fast, if not weak segement, stuffed with opposite sides of a few well-known controversies. Roswell as a "myth," nothing more.
So sad that, 60 years after Roswell, this show got a good start and could have been historic, but failed when it got to Roswell, then literally
flagged therafter. Cable TV does a better job with actual documentaries, not corporate news jobs on a subject that is greater than epochal in
significance---because of its vast, multi-historic and enormous social, population implications, the subject is multiply more than epochal. Jennings
reduced much of it to trivia. He probably thinks he cracked the regime ice, just a little, so that people at least got ideas, certainly about the
Phoenix lights. But, in the end, the old top three networks no longer establish the mindset, here.
The irony in all of this is that nearly 100 million US citizens know the truth. We were watching the show to see how the propaganda goes, not to see
new facts. Score one for mediocrity. Pass me the Air Bud movie and get me some potato chips, yowzuh!
