Stephen Bassett Goes for “Critical Mass”
UFOs and Nukes Press Conference Coverage
Sept. 26, 2010: The third major witness press conference addressing UFO/ET related issues will be held at the National Press Club on Monday, September 27. The first was in May of 2001 (Disclosure Project) and the second in November of 2007 (Kean/Fox). PRG believes this press conference may prove the most important ever and has the potential to end the truth embargo by triggering a major shift in media coverage. Why? It is the direct connection to nuclear facilities and national security. Such a connection gives an already spring loaded media a clear hook upon which to hang their hat and purse and get to work.

Media feeding frenzies are exactly like nuclear reactions (fittingly). If the amount of overall traffic on and off web reaches a critical mass, it explodes. Nothing can withstand such a frenzy. Don’t think so? Ask Bill Clinton.
Sept. 27, 2010: Washington, DC – Today at the National Press Club testimony from one researcher and seven former members of the United States Air Force was presented to more than two dozen print and television reporters. The subject was: the UFO-Nukes Connection. It was sponsored and organized by researcher Robert Hastings, author of UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, and Capt. Robert Salas (USAF retired).

“What should happen now,” stated PRG executive director Stephen Bassett, who attended the event, “is for members of the political press to direct specific questions regarding this testimony at the press spokespersons for the Department and Defense, U.S. Air Force and the Central Intelligence Agency and expect answers from Secretaries Robert Gates, Michael Donley and Leon Panetta.”
“At least that is what is supposed to happen if the political media in Washington, DC are not under government- or self-imposed restraints.”
PRG Media Archives
It took about 150 hours, but the PRG Media Archive is once again current and sitting at 663 mainstream media, English language articles for 2010. Due to the huge growth of coverage of the UFO/ET issue, this archive is now representational of the ongoing coverage.
The total number of articles for 2010 is likely double those listed. This is because many stories are now being written up in 20, 30, 40 venues with similar or identical content. Archiving all such articles would be counterproductive diluting the ability to survey the media content. The total number of articles written up in mainstream media since 1947 is probably in the 25,000 range. The number of articles not in English since 1947 is unknown, but certainly many thousands.
PRG created the PRG Media Archive to make mainstream reporters and editors aware the UFO/ET issue is in fact being covered extensively by standard media worldwide. More importantly it is to show the vast majority of this coverage – 95% plus in the modern era – is straight with little or no ridicule. The intent is to lower the fear barrier to proper engagement of the issue as the world slowly comes out from under the weakening truth embargo.
For some time we have been just one media feeding frenzy away from Disclosure. Which brings us to……………………
