Mick West joins us again, this time to talk about the recent flap of UFO sightings and media interest. Major news outlets are giving airtime to what seem like the same old things: unexplained lights in the sky and evidence that the government takes an interest in such phenomena. Mick gives some examples of the categories that UFO videos and photos can be sorted into on his forum, and we talk about why UFOs are taken more seriously by journalists than some other conspiracy ideas that have no basis in observable fact. He also goes into the government money allocated by Harry Reid in the service of looking into these mysterious lights and how that funding decision came about.
