Coast To Coast AM - 26.8.2011 - 1/4 - UFOs & the Media

Filling in for George Noory, George Knapp welcomed journalist Terry Hansen for a discussion on the media's role in covering UFO phenomenon. Hansen said he became interested in the topic when he noticed a gulf between what happens in the real world and the way in which national news organizations portray or ignore certain events.

The government’s historical engagement with such fare can most thoroughly be discussed with regard to the Department of Defense (DoD), which has worked extensively with Hollywood in exchange for the right to edit scripts for sixty years


so for sixty years the DOD
has been censoring Hollywood movies
go figure

It's possible the DOD may have had a hand in this one.

A curious omission?

'History of Government Management of UFO Perceptions through Film and Television'

A major new article on the subject on government manipulation of UFO-themed media products is accessible from today as an advance publication for the Spring 2011 issue of 49th Parallel - a journal of North American Studies jointly run through the UK universities of Birmingham and Nottingham.

This is one of only a small handful of articles dealing with UFOs and entertainment-media-control ever to have been published in a peer-reviewed academic journal, and is all the more unusual in that it treats UFOs not as a mere cultural abstraction, but as a real, physical phenomenon of considerable concern to officialdom..

The question is: Why do they care what we think of UFOS and Extraterrestrial Life?
If they didn't know some important basic information about the subject they wouldn't feel the need to control our perception of it.
On this basis alone we can conclude that:
A) They know far more than they are letting on about and
B) What they know is important enough to bother with managing our perception of it.

I do find it fascinating that early movies the aliens were always the bad guys (98% of the time)
Suddenly there was a shift with Close Encounters and ET to aliens being friendly and benevolent.
Lately we have gone back to the original theme of aliens just want to kill and experiment on us.

Does that fit in any kind of psychological model for creating a desired outcome?
If so, what is it?
Call me confused because that's what I am.
Was that the goal all along?
