So, as a cable network, you see an opportunity for ratings worth selling to the public - if you can do a show about `UFOs'. To promote the NEW series about to begin - you fund, with biased questions, and with NO analysis provided, a FUN survey about aliens that EVEN includes answers such as Spider Man, Batman, or The Hulk = who would be better to deal with `angry aliens'. (The Hulk wins).
And, you make sure that you ask what YOU would do if they came TO YOU (I assume to your house) and whether you would befriend them or kill them (other choices too) (befriending wins) - you know, REAL realistic questions you would be taking seriously. That would be AFTER you answer about Men In Black being Government Agents? (55%) Oh, please. And, of course, not a solitary serious example of MIB or that they may be aliens. Or Fortean. Incredible.
Oh sure, you throw in the expected questions - `has the government kept info about UFOs from the public' (79%) - YET, DON'T SAY ONE WORD ABOUT THE OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT POSITION GIVEN LAST YEAR. Hey, what do you expect from an informed free press, right?
You need a final kicker about how low National Geographic has dipped in search of selling TIDE detergent? The best question was whether Romney or Obama would handle an alien invasion better - the answer was found in the ANAGRAM of the two words Obama-Romney.
Maybe A Moron. <------(The Anagram Answer)
The EXACT TARGET AUDIENCE that the NG show is looking to attract.
Morons who buy Tide.
Oh, the above USA Today article INCLUDED a picture of a plastic alien at an Area 51 exhibit and a funky graphic that showed 1/3 believed in `UFOs' and 1/2 Didn't Believe in UFOs - yep, no definition at all about what UFOs would be. Serious front page journalism (most likely with an ad for the show embedded in the life section).
And I guess that answers the question as to who would be interested in a UFO show from National Geographic - Maybe a Moron. Oh, BTW, studies have show that people who `believe' in the paranormal tend to NOT believe in EITHER of the two parties and tend to be non-political ------------- you see, folks who `believe' in UFOs/ParaNormal tend NOT to believe in the NORM - like the beyond worthless politics in America or the beyond worthless media. Enjoy The Show. (oh, the source of the data, the actual results of the questions, is unavailable anywhere on the web)
