Now that you got that off your chest, read the book and refute what Klass says about Friedman, and the others. Stick to the facts, not ad hominem
A taste of what others say:
Stanton Friedman Questionable!
August 14, 2011 · by Ray · in Latest. ·
I often thought about how some of the so called UFO experts trying to discredit others and accentuate themselves. One good example of a such a person
is Stanton Friedman. And to be honest with you I`m getting really annoyed and irritated about this Stanton Friedman character. Stanton Friedman is
attending almost every TV documentary about UFOs, and of course he wrote the most significant books ( according to some ) inventing the most popular
UFO stories. I used to listen to him and wonder: The TV always said “nuclear physicist” under his name, so of course, anything he said had to be
true. At least I thought so in my age at that time. I didn’t know that his real career, in fact his only career since 1970, was writing UFO books. I
guess the TV producers feel that calling him a nuclear physicist gives him more credibility than calling a spade a spade
Stanton Friedman Doesn’t Like Me
by Brian Dunning, Dec 04 2008
A reader wrote me on Facebook that he was listening to the “Paranormal Podcast”, another of the usual promoters of nonsense inexplicably allowed
to remain in the Science & Medicine section of iTunes. The guest was Stanton Friedman, the principal author of the Roswell, Travis Walton, and Betty &
Barney Hill UFO mythologies. Anyway, at 25 minutes into the episode (#56, but don’t bother listening as it’s only a 15 second blurb), Stanton
mentioned that he “came across a piece on the Internet” the other day that got “40 flat-out false claims” about the Betty and Barney Hill
story, and added with a condescending chortle that he “couldn’t believe it.” It was the online transcript of my Skeptoid episode on that
Ufology War: Colin Bennett vs. Stanton Friedman
by ryguy » Thu Jan 20, 2011 2:18 pm
Well, there's a bit of a battle brewing in the world of Ufology this week. After Dick Farley distributed an email noting what he views as the
impending implosion of "old-school" Ufology (see Steve's post), Colin Bennett responded with his own observations - and in his signature style, in
one stroke he laid down the law against several notable old-school Ufologists...most notably the old "expert" many UFO shows approach when they need
a Ufologist to feature on camera - Stanton Friedman.
Last night, Stanton threw his own angry response back at Colin's comment that Stanton hadn't actually done any "nuclear physics" work in about
half decade. Apparently Friedman took issue with Colin's inaccuracy....it's been more like a quarter century, thank you very much.
on Larry King Live on UFOs
I thought eSkeptic readers might appreciate some of the more amusing (and nasty) letters I have received (appended below), plus one very revealing
letter about Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s “UFO sighting” on the way to the moon, recounted by him on the show (revealing UFOlogist Stanton
Friedman to be an incompetent researcher).
BAD GUYS/WOMEN (Bad=harms UFO truth - a partial list)
Stanton Friedman, M.S., engineer, defamer of relevant researchers, tries to mis-focus people on a half-century old crash instead of current Star
