UFO coverage deserves far more space

Re: “UFO Sightings Sky-High Last Year In Canada (Brandon Sun/Winnipeg Free Press, March 12).

In regard to the aforementioned articles, as well as the CTV News report featuring footage of “lights in the sky (UFOs)” March 11 and 12, it’s always disappointing to see the mainstream news media bury these stories in the middle pages or last pages of a paper or as the last story, or a short middle story during a news broadcast.

It’s also annoying that even given the literally hundreds of thousands of reported (very few people actually report their sightings, so the numbers are actually much higher than reported by the media) sightings across the globe each year that the mainstream news usually only feature easy-to-explain-away cases and virtually ignore the many more harder-to-explain-away cases.

The number of unexplained/unexplainable sightings is much higher than what Chris Rutkowski (a Winnipegger who is with Ufology Research) suggests when he and others say about 15 per cent. It’s much higher when considering how many are made all over the globe every year by all kinds of different people and the fact that most sightings are never reported to officials.

There have been congressional hearings on the subject of UFOs, featuring highly respected professionals giving evidence for this phenomena which has been happening for aeons.

It would be nice if the mainstream media would take this important subject matter more seriously than they do and give it the attention it deserves.

This phenomena about UFOs and ETs has been witnessed by too many people and been backed up by all sorts of governments, military and intelligence community people and people of all sorts of backgrounds and lifestyles the world over for decades.

In fact, such things have been reported for thousands of years and there are even ancient cave paintings and hieroglyphics showing flying machines and beings from “the sky.” They have also been featured in most of the world’s most ancient religious texts, from the Sumerian texts to the Hindu to the Bible and more.

Pseudo-skeptics sneer and dismiss and blatantly ignore tons of evidence, saying there is no or little evidence. There is mountains of it for those willing to be objective, but also to open their minds and do the research, including videos and pictures of not simply odd lights that can be explained away, but more defined craft.

One request to the mainstream media: Please consider researching and then reporting on the harder-to-dismiss cases of sightings, etc., and not being so sarcastic, dismissive, whimsical about it all and not burying the stories.
