- It is equally interesting that a similar psychosicial hypothesis has been a part of UFO-enthusiasts' argumentative arsenal in the dispute over the alleged misconduct by the official society towards witnesses in several cases, stating the opposite: that the UFO scepticism is a psychosocial trend conditioned by the authorities.
..but I think it too NPOV.. Anyway, I was looking for Jimmy Carters quotation from the Jimmy Carter sightings as a "back up" for this "counter-theory". I think I spotted it at CohenUFO.org, but now I can't find it. Anyone? - Sigg3.net 10:20, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

needs reorganization, editing for grammar
The section on SF is problematic. It would seem that science fiction anticipating later abduction events, along with the point that after the Ken Arnold sighting subsequent UFO sightings conformed to media misrepresentations of this case, would support the hypothesis that UFOs are a psychosocial phenomenon conditioned by mass media.
The line of reasoning in the article at present is confused. Assuming that the above is in line with the sources cited, this section should be reorganized along these lines. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:54, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
