Why “UFOs” will never become a top nightly TV news story


It is a sad fact, especially for die-hard “UFO believers” that UFO sighting news have never been (and will never be) treated as a top headline story in most national and local nightly TV news.
And, if any, most of the time such news stories about UFO sightings come at the very end of the half-hour nightly national or local TV news.
Never have they been a top news story.

Why is it so?
Simply because the mainstream news media still consider and categorize the subject of “UFOs” as part of Pseudo Science (akin to “fringe” topics or “beliefs”).

The news stations seem to do its best to avoid any ridicule.
And so they have no choice but to treat such news with a “light-hearted” attitude.

Usually the news anchor makes a cynical, smart-alecky and (most of the time) comical remarks about the sighting or about the subject matter in general.
And then, usually all of the anchors end up together with a laughter.


It is a convenient way to end the nightly news on a “light” note, a break from “serious” and increasingly depressing subject matters such as economy, politics, wars, terrorism, crime, environmental destruction, ad infinitum.
The subject of “UFOs” occupies the very end of a long list of all available topics, and usually only as a “filler” if they can’t find any other items to bring the half-hour news program to a close, on a rather “happy” or “light-hearted” tone.

We all hope that some day in the future, UFO news will become a top story in the nightly news program.
But, will that day ever come?
