The Other Shoe Drops at The Washington Post

It's not just a portrait of a long-time UFO investigator as a fringe eccentric, but the claim from a former MUFON official that the organization has become what is essentially a membership scam:


The article specifies that memberships at MUFON are now around $100 a year. Actually, they go as high as $299.88 per year for a VIP membership that packs in such "glorious" extras as a MUFON hat, a model flying saucer, mouse pad, travel pillow, label pin, stylus pen, a hard copy version of the journal, the MUFON.TV streaming service and other tchotchkes of no possible interest to most people.

All right, we do sell branded merchandise here at The Paracast, and premium memberships, but we try to keep the prices affordable and we make no claim that you will thus fund a movement to evangelize the presence of ET. It's about perspective, and I remember when a MUFON membership was $40-50 a year or so. All they've done is make themselves vulnerable to a takedown by the mainstream media. And none are more mainstream than the Washington Post.
 
Agree and Mr Greenwald Jr. Doing a great work breaking down the alleged 'Wilson Documents' not bothered too much with those as stated parts of MJ-12 is credible as Stan stated many times . All have different areas and all just theories until you read the archives. Eyewitness sighting are good from credible numbers and even official documents can be muddled with the above top secret clearance as Tim Good as stated. Roswell Brazel Crash was real as the others and retrieved unknowns are real . Vast amount of recorded documents ,videos -gun camera color as well and other material. Take this UAP 'fast trackers ' field of study real not the showmen and women references is key .

Yeah, but you still make the podcast itself free and you don't try to sell the Paracast as anything other than what it is. I've always thought MUFON was a mixed bag, it seemed like they had some decent members who believed in science, but then there other members who never met a woo-woo theory they didn't like. Most troubling is that they make this guy Director of Investigations and they aren't comping him anything for his time. Are they not helping their investigators with even some basic expenses? I mean, if they aren't, then what's the point? It's a freaking cult.

And thus make the poor guy vulnerable to a takedown from a major newspaper. It also hurts the organization that they cannot find someone actually qualified to be a chief investigator.

So do you think this will cause a shake-up in MUFON or will they just shake it off with some stupid PR releases?

Probably none of the above. It would only draw attention to the article. At least they didn't mention the case of a former Director being arrested and accused of being a pedophile.

MUFON has been on a downward slide for decades. It’s not a sustainable organization long term. It has plenty of crooks on the inside that are more interested in their own self-serving agendas than UFOs.

Hmm, it really looks that way.

I wonder, why is that? is it because they become too big and wealthy for their own good? That would definitely lure in all the hustlers.
