The Press/Government UFO Conspiracy Explored on The Paracast

Please Remember The Paracast:
We know you have other priorities, but here's the deal: Some of you have asked David and me about our day jobs. Well, without going into details that you probably don't care about, I have a technology site and a tech radio show -- and we both have The Paracast. We do receive a small amount of revenue from ads, but it's far from sufficient to put food on the table. So we hope you readers and listeners will, if you can, help make up some of the difference, which is why we humbly and regularly request your donations. Yes, we know money is tight due to the world economic crisis. But no contribution is too small (or too large :). We have a Donate link on our home page, below the logo and audio player. Or just send your contribution via PayPal to sales (at) theparacast (dot) com.

You Can Now Order The Official Paracast T-Shirt: You asked, and we answered. We are now taking orders for The Official Paracast T-Shirt and a collection of other specially customized merchandise. To get your T-Shirt, just pay a visit to our new online store at Welcome to The Official Paracast Store to select your size and place your order. We now also offer a lineup of other premium merchandise featuring The Paracast logo.

Has the Press Become the WWF?

You all know, I'm sure, that professional wrestling is basically play-acting. Sure the performers themselves can get badly injured as a result of their shenanigans inside and outside the ring. It's not a sport for the feint of heart or those not in seriously good physical condition, but none of it is real. The outcomes of the matches and the key maneuvers and byplay between wrestlers are all carefully choreographed for maximum ratings.

However, you have to wonder if the sort of goings-on that you see on TV news, particularly the 24 hour cable channels that stake out clear ideological positions, may also be very much a put up job.

You see, today's news departments are owned by huge media conglomerates, usually multinational in scope, and they are usually managed by the entertainment divisions. They care strictly about ratings and ad sales. If a show is profitable, it stays on the air. If not, they will tinker with it and make it succeed, even if that requires replacing the hosts and changing the format.

Unfortunately, reporting the events of the day as accurately as possible is a concept long since thrust by the wayside. The "reality show" media as portrayed in the 1970s movie, "Network," has emerged as something all too real.

Unfortunately, it almost seems as if the politicians are complicit in this grand scheme. So the conservatives get emphasis on Fox News, whereas liberals may hold sway over at MSNBC. Both networks claim to present fair news coverage, but that's just a myth, one that's painfully obvious if you examine the way stories are slanted. Perhaps it's all a game, designed to misdirect your attention from what's actually happening.

Maybe Edgar R. Murrow is spinning in his grave. But wait a minute, didn't the media cooperate with the U.S. Government to deliver carefully burnished versions of the news during World War II? Can you really believe the popular image of the 9/11 attacks as being the handiwork of a handful of Muslim extremists bought and paid for by an international terrorist agency, all carefully orchestrated by a shadowy figure who comes from a very wealthy family?

Certainly, when it comes to the UFO enigma, whom do you trust? The governments have, for the most part, said it's all a fantasy, though some have released thousands of documents that seem to be compelling enough but lack final proof. Forget about UFOs spotted over nuclear installations, however. That and lots of other troubling data remains under wraps in the interests of national and international security.

You have to wonder how it will ever be possible to discover the truth about the reality of UFOs. Do Earthly governments even know? Are they engaged in separate or cooperative plots to prevent us from knowing the truth? But that may also be said for many of the current events in our violent world nowadays, unfortunately.
