THE TROUBLE WITH ALTERNATIVE MEDIA IS…?March 6, 2011
Well it's that time again, namely, the weekend, where I attempt to pull together a week's blogs and find the energy to write them. This website makeover has been a lot of work and frankly, I'm exhausted, but one thing I have immensely enjoyed are all the readers who've taken time to comment here and on my Facebook wall; I just wish I had time to respond to all of you.
In the past two months, as I've been visiting various sites and refreshing my memory of various authors in the alternative research community, I've been noticing something, hence, the subject of this post, and that is, everyone in the alternative research community, or those who follow it closely, have some complaint or beef with it, or perhaps my antennae are picking up other signals and I am misinterpreting them?
Well, anyway, here's my beefs with it: (1) authors who don't footnote, (2) the tendency of so many to believe the most incredible things, without much critical thought, (3) the low-level of reporting by so much of the alternative media, (4) the same-old same-old themes and guests at the usual conferences, (5) UFO and Ancient Alien shows that rehash research that's been out there for 30 years.
Ok, having stated those first five topics on a long list of my own personal beefs, what I'd like to know is, what are yours? Yes, that's right, it's another informal poll! The only thing I ask is, leave personal names and shows out of it. I'd like to know what you have observed and what your personal beefs are.
