Deeper views of Texas UFO sightings explored
UFO Hovers Over Stephenville, Texas

Continuing developments in the Texas UFO sightings incidents are raising eyebrows.

Several of these new elements are of interest for people curious about UFOs as well as Americans and journalism professionals concerned about the integrity of the news media in the United States.

A case about an unusual and unconventional occurrence such as a cluster of UFO sightings is becoming intertwined with more conventional analysis of U.S. news media ownership and ethics.

Interestingly, the Stephenville case may shed more light on both of these areas.

In addition, other aspects of some surrounding circumstances include foreign ownership of American media outlets, financial interests and media influence, and how these affect media coverage of a wide range of news issues.


According to published and radio reports, several local peace officers have not only observed unidentified and highly unusual objects in the sky, but one amazing and transforming object was caught on a police car's video camera.

The videotape has been reviewed by Erath County Constable Lee Roy Gaitan, an elected law enforcement and public safety official, and he has described the details to Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe.

Howe reported this news on her Web site, Earthfiles.com, and on the well-known author Whitley Strieber's "Dreamland" online radio show (UnknownCountry.com).

Officers have drawn sketches of what they saw and described behavior of the objects they observed. The officers are reported to be reluctant about speaking publicly due to the sensitive nature of their observations and are concerned about pressures and about losing their jobs.
