Nothing has been more a blessing and a curse to the UFO cause than commercialism. If it wasn’t for commercialism in the early days of the UFO phenomenon there would have been very little public information on the UFO reports. The only way to get the message out was through publication. Believe it or not in the very early days comics were used to highlight interesting UFO reports. I don’t know how it is now, but in the middle of the comics there would always be a two page post on different subjects; many times it was a UFO report. Late, TV jumped in especially after a UFO buzzed Washington DC and It was plastered all over the east coast newspapers. Occasional news shows would highlight the UFO subject. However, over the long term, the continuing publication of books and research made the difference.

Just to note here, it was the UFO witnesses that kept the UFO subject alive, but it was the honest UFO investigators that disseminated the details of what really transpired.

Then the UFO community started to have group meetings where UFOs subjects were discussed and where the writers could present their evidence and interact with the people who had experiences. One old timer claimed to me that they always saw men in dark suits with glasses at these meetings.
