Finding the Facts in the Strangest Places...

From the National Enquirer in 1977:

While I would never claim that the Enquirer has ever been a paragon of responsible journalism, even a broken clock is right twice a day, and the Enquirer, particularly in the 1970s, did include some solid reportage on the UFO phenomenon (mixed in with more sensationalistic and lurid material). The article about the Condon Report shown above is a good example, and particularly interesting given the comments of former committee members - and the failure of the "mainstream media" to provide a more balanced account of the Condon Report in the years since.
