I don't know how approriate this suggestion may be, but...
Would it be worth having some type of thread where members can post about UFO articles printed in local newspapers/magazines near to them? Similarly,
they could also post about TV segments related to UFOs as well? Keep the stuff fairly recent, so we're not digging through ancient history. The
thread could be archived each month or so, for search purposes, in case someone wanted to investigate a particular article reference from the past.
I only suggest this, as I hardly ever read or watch the mainstream media anymore. I prefer to read the internet for the little news that interests
me. However, I know that I miss out on reading some articles that newspapers print about UFOs. I have friends ask me at times, if I read so-and-so
article, but I never do, as I don't buy them.
It would help give other people a heads-up as to what is being put out in the media near your area, if there was a place where we could tip each other
off to a good article, possibly?
If it's a crap idea, than that's cool. It's just a suggestion so don't jump down my throat for it. I'm not fussed if it never happens. The
current month's print media could be a live thread, with previous months' media reports shelved as archive material. You can't have a long thread
grow over time without being pruned for clarity.
I'm always interested to read how the (print) media portray UFO sightings and how they write their (often misinformed) articles.
