ABC’s Primetime “Abducted by Aliens: Believers Tell Their Stories
” (ABC 10:00
PM ET 18 August 2009) was another waste of time and yet one more example of how the media is too well trained to see... or at least report the
But rather than focus solely on this poor bit of reporting, we should instead make note of the larger problem of the ‘Fair and Balanced’
notion of news telling.
Life is hardly ever fair and rarely, if ever, balanced. To present any kind of research under this format… is to guarantee that the
end result will be neither convincing or even useful. To the contrary, to be ‘fair and balanced’ is to create a false sense of reality that offers
a hand of comfort to those who may not find their happy zone in the bare, naked facts.
‘Fair and Balanced’
is first and foremost a political mistake, originally forwarded under the pretense that to do otherwise, was not
politically correct to everyone. But again, life is not fair and not balanced... and to present anything resembling honest reporting under this
horribly false pretense, is a waste of time and utterly deceiving.
This latest example was nothing but yet another Peter Jennings' UFO denial party, where nothing was revealed except the media's unforgivable
culpability to the ignorance of the public.
