So why does it feel like we’re stuck in quicksand and no progress is being made with the New York Times’ article on crashed and retrieved UFOs? I’ve heard the story has made it through the first pass with the editors but what does that mean? And what does the journey of coming up with an idea for a story and taking it all the way through to publication, look like? I reached out to a Managing Editor at a newspaper in the United States and asked them to explain the entire process. They wanted to remain anonymous for now.

~~~

Joe Murgia (JM): “How do you guys get your stories and how would you handle a story about alleged crashes of UFOs and the New York Times about to publish a story on it?”

Managing Editor (ME): “I don’t want to speak for all media, I’m just speaking in very general terms. We get tips all the time, all day ? we have ways for people to access us ? and they vary in degree of detail, veracity, plausibility, all of these things. But we never want to just dismiss something out of hand. If we have a real person to contact, you know, a lot of this stuff comes in anonymously, that’s a whole nother situation because then you can’t really access the source and that makes it more difficult. But if we see that there’s something that needs to be followed up on, especially if it’s breaking or highly competitive, we have a team of investigative reporters, that’s their whole job. Mostly they work on longer-term projects. But we vet these things as much as we can.

・新聞編集局のトップが語る実務の話だから参考にはなる。得に UFO 問題を NYT などが扱う場合の社内のプロセスはさもありなんという感じ。

・だが、もはやメディアの報道に一昔前までのような客観性もジャーナリズム精神も認められず、メディア神話の崩壊を見てきた現在の我々の目からすると、この匿名の新聞編集長の誇らしげに語る社内の厳正な編集プロセスの話を聞いて、面倒くささに感心する一方で「そこまでやってあのザマかよ」という思いも抑えがたい。
