The consensus at ATS concerning the "India Daily" is that it is a sensationalist source and not to be trusted. I accepted this point of view unconditionally until today, when I found in my Hotmail inbox the following message from Dr. Michael Salla, Ph.D., founder of the Yahoo group called "prepare4contact", and now I don't know what to think about the matter.

My intention is to seek out the opinions of people that are qualified to decide whether or not Mr. Salla's reasons for accepting the "India Daily" as a useful source are acceptable. I am in no way promoting this ufologist. As far as I know, he could be just another disinformer, or an honest researcher who can be expected to make mistakes lke anybody else.

The message:

Aloha all, like many, I've been intrigued by the stories coming
forward from the India Daily news journal concerning
extraterrestrial technologies or visitors.
These stories are allegedly based on leaks from within the Indian
military-intelligence community and I have suggested they
are possibly part of an Indian government initiative to educate the
Indian public about extraterrestrials. I've posted a number of
the India Daily stories and a number of individuals have responded
to the effect that India Daily is not a serious news journal, and/or
may be putting out disinformation as part of a psyop from a mil-
intel agency. I subsequently did some research on the India Daily to
determine how reliable it is as an information source on what is
really happening as far as any relationship between exterrestrials
and agencies in the Indian government is concerned.

The India Daily was created in April 2004 and is based in New
Jersey. It has enjoyed quick success and puts out quite a range of
news stories that cover news worthy items that are oriented towards
an Indian audience. The writers are a mix of correspondents
or staffers associated with the India Journal. A good number of
breaking stories are extracted from news agencies. To get an idea of
how popular India Daily is, I compared it to some other well known
news journals/websites using the Alexa Ranking which is a method of
registering web traffic for potential advertisers. You can enter any
website and compare it with others to determine its popularity. (See
developers.evrsoft.com... )
Basically, the lower the ranking, the more popular it is. I ran four
other news journals/websites to compare and got the following
results.

# Domain Name Traffic Ranking
1 www.post-gazette.com 4,260
2 www.indiadaily.com 15,502
3 coasttocoastam.com 4,558
4 www.aljazeerah.info 53,676
5 www.usatoday.com 252

Basically it shows that India Daily compares quite well with other
news journals/websites and out performs the english version of the
popular Arab website Aljazeerah. My conclusion is that India Daily
is more likely a serious news journal covering Indian affairs,
rather than a site promoting disinformation. Consequently, the
stories coming out of India Daily need to be considered as possibly
part of an effort to disclose information concerning
extraterrestrial technologies or entities that are known
to various Indian government officials and agencies. This suggests
that India Daily is a news journal to watch closely. (...)
In peace,

Michael S.

Has he even looked at the crap India Daily puts out or is he just going by numbers?

With so many things that are coming to us now it is all about discernment. Only you can know what is truth for you – no one else can do that for you. There are many things on India Daily, which I take with a ‘gain of salt’, others I sense are based on truth.

Doubt is the greatest inhibitor of truth.

That message was dated Mch. 29. Here's his most recent one (April 8), which also has to do with the source that some people associate with messy natural fertilizers:


Aloha All, here is the latest series of articles from India Daily on
various aspects of ET technologies and human consciousness. While
the articles are brief, they nevertheless raise interesting points
about ET technologies and the relationship with human consciousness.
While sources are vague, the issues raised appear to be on the
cutting edge of a secret world of black projects that is not known
to the general public.

The frequency of articles being released by India Daily looks like a
concerted effort to raise public awareness about the impact of ET
technologies in the defense and civilian sectors. Some critics
suggest this is little more than an attempt to attract readers
through tabloid style speculative stories. In my view, the news
coverage of possible ET technologies is important in getting the
general public thinking about what may be happening in the secret
black operations world of reverse engineering ET technologies.

In peace

Michael S.

I'm sure you'll find that The Weekly World News probably outsells the New York Times. Does that make it then a more reliable news source?

The bottom line is that India Daily fails to name sources, fails to be corraborated by ANY other news source, and uses stock UFO photos (without claiming them as such) in their UFO stories. All that said, it's for the reader to decide what is a credible source, but personally, I've seen too much from them that simply has to be relegated to fiction without any other support.

EDIT: By the way, it didn't take a doctorate, or a PHD for our members to ferret out the same info months ago (in the India Daily thread)
So don't be too impressed with the Dr's findings....

As an example of how unsupported their stories are, see the second post from Indigo Child here on page 1, as it illustrates this very well...an analysis of how they used unnamed sources.
