National Geographic Channel's Chasing UFOs: "UFO Proponents and UFO Skeptics All Agree That The Show Is Absurd"

More Time Wasted with National Geographic's "Chasing UFOs"

By Robert Sheaffer
     While at the two recent conferences in Reno and Las Vegas (see the previous Blog entry), I had occasion to explain to several people that the latest turd-TV offering from the National Geographic Channel, Chasing UFOs, had succeeded in doing something that never has been done before: UFO proponents and UFO skeptics all agree that the show is absurd, a travesty of "UFO investigation" that makes everyone look bad. Indeed, some UFO proponents think that because the show is so bad, it must be a government plot to embarass UFO researchers! Hard-core UFO proponent Robert Hastings quite appropriately says the show is "investigation as farce." He says that its "entertainment-based formula may best be described as Blair Witch Project meets Inspector Clouseau. If the show’s producers are not secretly in cahoots with some intelligence agency to make legitimate UFO research look bad, by association, they have certainly achieved that outcome inadvertently." . . .
