Default Of journalism and UFOs

The “free press”, the journalistic institutions who are purportedly responsible for maintaining a well-informed public and holding the power to account, are now reporting something they used to scoff at and dismiss, because the US military told them it’s legitimate.
The US military. The single most dangerous part of the single most powerful government on earth, who the press is meant to be holding accountable with the light of truth. The part of the US government where intense skepticism is the most important. They’re not just failing to apply critical journalism, but are actively picking up the torch and running with a story as bizarre as the possibility that extraterrestrials are buzzing around the earth’s atmosphere.
The fact that the mass media are now talking about UFOs all the time because the US military told them it’s a legitimate story to cover says very little about UFOs, but it says a lot about the mass media.
