Strange Universe was "allowed" to air only a few seconds of the alleged footage, which is the property of Rocket Pictures. Those few seconds showed an apparent "alien," more or less of the "gray" variety, standing or sitting almost motionless. The head and right shoulder were visible; the rest of the entity was in shadow. A small green light moved up and down in the lower right corner of the screen. That was it.
At least five people -- researcher Robert O. Dean, abductee Jesse Long, special effects artist/abductee Steve Neill, MUFON investigator/abductee Alice Leavy, and author/abductee Whitley Strieber -- had been shown the entire several minutes of footage and were asked to comment on camera. Strange Universe edited their remarks to remove nearly all indications that the footage might be regarded as fake, while playing and replaying several remarks by Whitley Strieber and Bob Dean, both of whom were clearly moved by some elements of the footage. Only one negative opinion, by Jesse Long, was heard during the broadcast.
CNI News has talked with Steve Neill, who said he was sure the footage was fake. He surmised that the alien was a puppet. "I could recreate that in my garage over the weekend," he told us. Jesse Long clearly stated that he thought the footage was fake. Even Whitley Strieber told CNI News that he doubted the film's authenticity. We can only conclude that Strange Universe strongly slanted their story in favor of the footage.
In addition, Strange Universe repeatedly stated that the more famous Santilli "alien abduction" footage had also come from Area 51. This is complete nonsense -- no one has ever made such a claim.
CNI News believes this Strange Universe segment should be considered as nothing more than a 30-minute infomercial for the "alien interview" video soon to be released by Rocket Pictures. We wonder: Does Strange Universe have a financial stake in that video?
