I am not quite sure where you are coming from with your comparison of UFO pictures that cannot be proven to this picture that has been proven to be
authentic by various experts.
First, let's look at this straight on...
We live in an age when most still and moving imagery is digital.
We live in an age where $100 or less will give you softwear that can create images and video almost indistinguishable from the real thing.
We live in an age where trust is a very worn and broken commodity due to its constant abuse from nearly every quarter.
Where does that leave us?
In an age where the term 'expert' is applied so freely and haphazardly that it has no foundation of trust.
Any image, any video... be it of big foot or a UFO or our favorite overseas political slant, can be either real or not.
How do we choose?
Well, most often, we follow our preferences. If we want that image from the war in Lower Slobovia to make one side look bad or the other look worse,
then we buy into it. And because expertise is so cheap and so available to a media that has no foundation of morality in the halls of trust, it can
pass with the drop of a hanky.
So, like UFOs... where we dodge the responsibility of actually trying to be right over the effort not to be wrong... we take the friendly garden path
in other subject matter.
In sum... what this person or that says regarding the value of anything in the way of digital imagery or video, it has nothing to do with a single
thing that can withstand contest. We choose based on our personal feelings and then rely on the term 'expert' to back us up.
No sides taken here... because none are worthy... in my humble opinion
