Adoption by mainstream media[edit]

The predictions of the end of the world was entirely New Age, utterly without any scientific foundation or logic, and promoted by a handful of lunatics who were misrepresenting Mayan religion. So why were these clearly false predictions adopted by the mainstream media, and promoted as if the had any credibility? That strange phenomenon itself deserves an article, or at least a paragraph here.Royalcourtier (talk) 02:14, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

What do you mean by "the mainstream media"? I'm not aware of any mainstream medium (with the possible exception of the movie) that endorsed the phenomenon. Most held it at a distance or treated it ironically, and were not even aware of the details of this. In fact, even the supposed "informative" media tended to get this wrong.

Origins?[edit]

Greetings, I'm not sure how you would cite this, but for me (and probably many others), the first time I heard the original Coe date, 24 December 2011, was at the end of The_Outer_Space_Connection, also in 1975, which I believe was also the last thing Rod Serling ever worked on (and the predecessor to "In Search of").
