SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - When the aliens finally invade Earth, you may wish you had listened to Travis Taylor and Bob Boan.
And if the invasion follows the plot of a typical Hollywood blockbuster, they might also be the guys called in at the last minute to save the day.
After all, they have written "An Introduction to Planetary Defence", a primer on how humanity can defend itself if little green men wielding death rays show up at our cosmic doorstep.
And yes, they're serious.

Looks like the old "2012 fake alien invasion plan" is already under way. They're scaring people. Not enough people will know it's fake and will freak out. I stick to the thought that if they wanted to wipe our planet out or take us over and use us as their slaves, they would have done so well before now.

They were probably talking about illegal immigration. They thought they would say something to grab people's attention. So they said it in a manner that would have one think they were talking about something from outer space. It's an old journalism trick.
If you notice, newspapers use it a lot. If they don't grab your attention in the first sentence or two of an article, the article is not printable.

Yet the story never was shown, unfortunally the car chase took up a whole 1.5 hours of airtime.

Was the car-chase really live scenes?
Did it perhaps seems like it was not live TV?
