A few weeks ago I started watching a 2-hour long special on ABC about UFO-s -- but I couldn't stand watching it for a long time; there was too much of the usual mystical stuff and the skeptical viewpoint was hardly given any consideration. Chris Mooney writes about the program at CSICOP's home page, and concludes that
"through the use of selective skepticism, journalistic "balance," and haphazard suspension of disbelief, ABC and Peter Jennings manage to keep the sense of "mystery' alive. In light of the difficulty of positively proving any existing UFO claim, that's probably the most they could possibly accomplish."
