Picking Up On What Lesley Said . . .

Lesley has said something in her introduction for today about the media. In discussing UFO Magazine’s current issue (you can dowload it for free as a PDF) Lesley refers to the cover, which shows a female an a male news anchor.

The female news anchor Nichole is captioned as saying: “
When you think of people saying: “Oh, Hey, I saw a UFO,’ you kinda think of freaks. I’m not gonna lie to you.”

(First of all, Nicole dahling, you’re a newscaster. Or so we’re supposed to believe. Your sloppy speech patterns really need work. I mean honsestly: “kinda,” and “gonna”?)

This is what Lesley said:
Some people think ufologists should impress the media by not seeming so kooky, but when will the media impress me by not seeming kooky and sooooooooo damn lazy?

It’s time UFOlogy, instead of constantly complaining about the “sorry state” and whining about not being a part of the infrastructure’s party, get aggressive and demand that the media and science step up. They should be coming to our party. Both should get back to what they were trained to do: investigate.

Riiiiiiight. Well, uh... "...sweetie," I'm not going to lie to you. Forewarned, this is not name-calling... this is assessment, but you are as deliberately uninformed as you are physically attractive.

You are a fraud and charlatan. You are a corporate bitch in the canine sense as deep as a plunging neckline and as relevant as Alexander Pope's raped lock. Please and with all deliberate speed go down to the river and beat your head on flat rock until the meaning of the word journalist is clear to you and journalism more than a quaint concept.

You qualify, madam, only as the best example of a bad example, are a well coiffed metaphor for the cognitive ills of our nation... as intellectually vapid as you are incisively vacuous. You front an inauspicious path of stunning mediocrity and profile an abdication of contribution, elevation, progression, and cultural advancement, only.

You do not inform. You do not report. You provide irrelevant information incompetently.

You are an embarrassing joke where you are not a mendacious complacency. Your every breath is a betrayal of the public trust.

Think about this, won't you, as you plan your next breast augmentation.

Well be, but I suspect that's improbable. Your infidelity will eventually rot you from the inside out. A pity when you could have done something courageous and significant.
