"Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations."    Joseph Pulitzer
 
Is a Contactee Running for Congress?
 
When this story broke, PRG's first reaction was, "not helping, not helping." But upon further examination it appears to be substantive and significant. If Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera is a contactee, she is one courageous woman. She is also an accomplished person who is quite serious and committed to her truth.
 
Within the half million plus written accounts researchers have received from people claiming direct contact with extraterrestrials, there is one group referred to as the "nordics." What she describes seems to fit that genre. 
 
She is receiving a great deal of coverage that may reflect the changing attitudes of the general media. That said, she is in for a rough time and PRG wishes her the best.  Below is a sample of the media coverage of her candidacy.
 
 
PRG might mention, purely as a matter of speculation, there are potentially a very large number of contactees in the U.S. - most of them in the closet. If, say, a large number of those contactees were to donate to this woman's campaign, it could have quite an impact - EMILY (early money is like yeast).
 
Should one be so inclined, they could do that HERE.

Newsweek Special Edition
The venerable magazine
Newsweek has devoted a special edition to the question of extraterrestrials - out there or here. The issue features a number of researchers and treats the core subject with respect. Coming as it does in concert with the recent announcement from the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences
, there is more cause for optimism as regards media engagement.  
On the newsstands now.
