The UFO entertainment

For many people any UFO site or channel is a source of entertainment not different than watching any other source of entertainment and almost any UFO channel format is designed as an entertainment channel.

And as in any entertainment provider pleasing people's expectations is on the top of the priority list and that automatically kills any pretenses of objectivity.

Jacques Vallee quoting an interview with Steven Spielberg:

"Vallee: When I met Stephen Spielberg, I argued with him that the subject was even more interesting if it wasn't extraterrestrials. If it was real, physical, but not ET. So he said, "You're probably right, but that's not what the public is expecting--this is Hollywood and I want to give people something that's close to what they expect." "

And exactly Spielberg's thinking had been the thinking of traditional Ufologists and the many people providing UFO entertainment and that is one of the reasons why nobody can take Ufology seriously.
