SoylentNews is people

Although many U.S. presidential candidates are discussing "aliens," the Daily Mail has a story about a candidate talking about aliens from potentially much farther away. According to the Daily Mail, Hillary Clinton has made a campaign promise to 'get to the bottom' of Area 51 if she should be elected President of the United States of America. Specifically, Clinton said that she would reveal the UFO truth:

"one way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51."

"I think we may have been [visited already]. We don't know for sure."

The Daily Mail story is based on the report of an interview with the candidate published in the Conway Daily Sun newspaper of Conway, New Hampshire.

Do the contributors here think that extraterrestrials are a promising and important campaign topic? Or is there skepticism?

    Doesn't matter.

    The Daily Mail quote it, it's bollocks.
    The Daily Mail cite it, it's made up.
    The Daily Mail publish it, it's fabricated junk.

    The Daily Mail is tabloid trash, and I can't see anyone else of reliance publishing it.

        Just one, actually. The second to the last. And Oh, as Barry said (Goldwater), extremism in the defense of journalism is no vice!

      Ah, so if I want you to not believe a story, all I have to do is to send it to the daily mail? :-)

      The Daily Mail is owned by Rupert Murdoch. It's main journalistic feature is boobs. Some have referred to the Weekly World News, but they are now sadly defunct and Batboy is no longer among us (thought I hear that Sean Penn just had a meeting with the Werewolf Boy!) No one has contributed so much to the decline in journalism as Murdock. He makes Hearst look like an amateur. He makes Sun Young Moon's Washington Times look like a real paper! And that is not easy to do! So, while I agree with the response that says "if you don't like what gets posted, submit something better", there are standards beneath which we should not go. Daily Mail is one of those. I might also add "Infowars", Drudge, and Brietbart. Not because they are right wing, but because they are crazy. But then, really, what is the difference?

        This Daily Mail article is entirely factual.

        So what's the problem? Don't want to give them ad revenue? Use an adblocker. Then you'll be getting the factual information while driving up their costs slightly.
