MSNBC’s ‘Cosmic Log’ wants your UFO tales while ‘UFO Battle’ is on hiatusby Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Sep. 09, 2010, under UFOs
Alan Boyle, Science & Technology editor at MSNBC has taken an interest in UFOs. It’s no wonder with increased sightings and UFOs dominating the news lately. Serious journalists are now reporting UFO sightings. As a result, the topic has fueled heated debate between skeptics and believers over the last couple of weeks.
A book by journalist Leslie Kean, “UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record”, has sparked much of the debate. The book currently sits at number 29 on the New York Times Bestseller’s List . It is also the basis of what Boyle calls “dueling commentaries” between Leslie Kean and NBC News space analyst James Oberg. MSNBC is the space where both have stated their cases:
Robert Roy Britt at Live Science took note of what he calls a “UFO battle” between the two, in a commentary that supports Oberg’s point of view. After all, he simply sees Kean “playing on” the ‘unknown’ and predicts that these dueling journalists will only result in Kean winning increased sales of her book.
So, while Oberg has not yet responded to Kean’s rebuttal, Boyle ensures that the UFO topic continues to hover in cyberspace over at MSNBC’s web space.
