"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
 
Bassett Moscow Interview Airs in Russia

In May of 2017 PRG executive director Stephen Bassett gave an extensive interview in Moscow to Ren TVone of the most watched networks in Russia with 500 stations and a viewer base of 120 million. The interview was conducted by journalist Natalia Pryguina and produced by Nikolay Subbotin.
 
Excerpts from that interview dubbed in Russian have now been aired on the program Most Shocking Hypotheses (самые шокирующие) hosted by Igor Prokopenko. The program presents high production value content on a range of alternative and exotic issues. Not surprisingly, extraterrestrial phenomena and their history are the most popular segments, and Mr. Prokopenko is a celebrity in Russia.

The program also includes excerpts from the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure as well as interviews with other researchers and witnesses, including John Greenewald and Donna Hare.

PRG would welcome summaries of this program from any of its Russian speaking supporters and will try to create an English captioned version, if possible. 
 
In the full interview held at Ren TV's studio Bassett covered a broad range of topics including various considerations that might prompt Russian President Vladimir Putin to make the first formal acknowledgment by a head of state regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. PRG believes this to be the first time anyone has made this argument on Russian media inside or outside Russia. It is not known if more of the interview will appear in future episodes of this program or on other programs. Further developments will be posted in future updates.
 
While in Moscow Bassett took meetings with a number of groups addressing the extraterrestrial phenomena issues in Russia. These groups included a number of former Soviet and Russian military and agency officials. There has always been a considerable, open engagement of extraterrestrial related phenomena within Russia and the Soviet Union by the public and the government.

[Note: PRG's work and Bassett were also included in an earlier Most Shocking Hypotheses program on August 29 that did not draw upon the Moscow interview.]

Recognizing Rojas and Walia
Since 2006 PRG has been archiving links to articles in mainstream media relating to extraterrestrial phenomena and exopolitics. This archive, which recently passed 10,000 listings, does not include articles from non-mainstream, paranormal, UFO and direct media. These genre's are easily searchable on the web, and PRG's focus has always been on the mainstream political press.

There are, of course, a number of journalists writing in the specialized genres doing excellent work - two of which PRG would like to recognize and commend to you. 
 
 
First is Alejandro Rojas writing for Open Minds Magazine and Website. For years he has been putting forth quality articles on very difficult subject matter - articles worthy of any mainstream magazine or newspaper.
 
 
The second journalist is Arjun Walia writing for a website titled Collective Evolution (CE). CE is a site of some substance addressing a range of alternative issues. Arjun has written extensive pieces relating to extraterrestrial phenomena and exopolitics. 
 
They are an important resource with scores of archived articles well worth reviewing.
RVML Reopens at New Location
 
PRG is pleased to learn from long time supporter and friend, Jordan Pease, the Rogue Valley Metaphysical Library will reopen at a new location in Ashland, OR on Thursday, September 28. This is mentioned as the RVML has a substantial book/video collection relating to extraterrestrial phenomena. 
An Important New Film Nears Completion
 
The long awaited film by Randy Nickerson about the September 16, 1994 encounter at the Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe and the investigation by Dr. John Mack is nearing completion. Its premiere will be a significant event, and PRG invites all to support this film in every way they can. Promote and share on social media, alert the press in your area, help with the completion funding. The legacy of Dr. Mack lives on.
