UFO Lecture:
X-Conference 2004:
Terry Hansen: News Media Complicity

and the Truth Embargo

Terry Hansen is the leading UFOs and the mainstream media researcher in the U.S. Here he presents a well-researched and very convincing lecture pertaining to the collaboration between the so-called Big Media (MSM) corporations and the U.S. military and intelligence communities. Hansen also lays out other very interesting evidences regarding the U.S. military and intelligence communities’ involvement with the UFO phenomenon. The introduction is presented by the X-Conference organiser Stephen Bassett, Paradigm Research Group (PRG) Executive Director:

Hansen presents two pieces of evidence, which proves that CBS collaborated with the CIA in the production of the documentary, ‘CBS Reports: UFO: Friend, Foe Or Fantasy?’

29:51 minutes into the video we are presented with a quote made by Sig Mickelson, the first Director of CBS TV News, who once said, “I didn’t raise an eyebrow about cooperating (with the CIA) back then (the 1950s to 1970s).” So since the Director of CBS TV News admitted that CBS collaborated with the CIA, he of course told the truth! And ‘CBS Reports: UFO: Friend, Foe Or Fantasy?’ was produced in 1966.

48 minutes into the video, Hansen presents the actual hand written letter (mentioned in my previous article), which Dr. Thornton Page sent to Fred Durant regarding the CIA’s role in the production of the aforementioned documentary.

Comment by the video source:
“NEWS MEDIA COMPLICITY AND THE TRUTH EMBARGO, with Terry Hansen. A mesmerizing account of his investigation into whether some of America's most influential news organizations, many having maintained close ties to the U.S. intelligence community, have willingly suppressed full and accurate news coverage of extraterrestrial related phenomena for a variety of "national-security" reasons. Hansen reveals the remarkable and persistent difference in UFO-related news coverage exhibited by local and national news organizations and reviews the history of censorship and propaganda during the twentieth century and the evidence for media-government collusion over the course of the half-century-long UFO controversy.

Terry Hansen is an independent journalist with an interest in scientific controversies and the politics of mass media. He is the author of the book, “The Missing Times: News Media Complicity in the UFO Cover-up”. He has organized and moderated two symposiums about the science and politics of UFO research for the Science Museum of Minnesota. Hansen holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in science journalism, both from the University of Minnesota. He was a founding partner of KFH Publications, Inc., a Seattle computer-magazine publishing company. This presentation covers some of the more recent and important stories that have been suppressed by the media cartels and powers-that-be.”
