Getting Inside Your Head: Media, Mind Control, and Marginalization of UFOs

Richard M. Dolan

Why is serious coverage of UFOs absent in the mainstream media? This article attempts to answer that question. It describes how big media and national security interests have converged, and how this relates to the subsequent banishment of serious information about UFOs from "official culture" (as I have often called it). This is one of the longer pieces in here, and will be featured in the February/March 2003 issue of UFO Magazine.

Media Control and the Presidents Interest in Ufology

Dennis Balthaser, 10/18/01

The general public has a hard time accepting the statements I make from time to time, that the news media is controlled to some degree by the government, and that the President of the United States is not totally informed about the UFO situation.

Media Play (PDF) PDF Document

Steven Greer, M.D., Director, The Disclosure Project / CSETI

Conventional Wisdom has it that we live in a free and open society with a free press, which plays the role of a key check and balance on government secrecy and abuse. This and other fantasies, foisted on a gullible public, have enabled runaway illegal secret projects to get away with murder, and they are now on the verge of planeticide - the killing of an entire planet. The truth is that we have free media - so long as it is inconsequential.

National media sidestep UFOs

Florida Today, May 7, 2002

There was a big subculture buzz in Washington, D.C., a year ago this week when a group called the Disclosure Project launched a bid to end government secrecy surrounding unidentified flying objects. ...The ensuing failure of the national media to respond came as no surprise to a couple of journalists who've spent years monitoring these dynamics. R

Searching for the Truth: Media Control and the Presidents Interest in Ufology

Dennis Balthaser, Oct 18, 2001

When doing radio or TV interviews and lectures, I am frequently questioned about the cover-up of the Roswell Incident and other related topics. The general public has a hard time accepting the statements I make from time to time, that the news media is controlled to some degree by the government, and that the President of the United States is not totally informed about the UFO situation.  R

The Real Wonderland

Richard M. Dolan

Unless you consciously look for such news, you would never know that UFOs continue to be seen by people every day, around the world. The difference between the reality of the phenomena, and how it is ignored, reminds me of what Alice experienced when she jumped down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.

The Role of the Media in the Politics of Disclosure

Stephen Bassett, June 2001 UFO Magazine

The greatest scientific discovery in history, the existence of non-human, intelligent life forms with interstellar propulsion technology, has been hidden from the general citizenry for over fifty years. The justification for this has varied from decade to decade and the methodology has at times violated the laws and the Constitution of the nation.  R

Understanding UFOs and the Media: Puncturing a Myth

Richard Dolan, Phenomenon Magazine, July 28, 2004

Some people in the UFO field have an idea that the “government” is planning open disclosure ever so slowly, ever so gradually, and that a key method for doing this is through the media. I find this unpersuasive for several reasons.
