Ever want to listen in on the newscasters a few minutes before going on the air to hear what they really think about UFOs? Well, here you are.
Here are Jon Hilkevitch, the Chicago Tribune transportation reporter who reported the Chicago UFO story and Jim Wagner, a news anchor with CLTV, a 24-hour news channel in Oak Brook, Illinois, discussing the Chicago O’Hare UFO reports immediately before Wagner goes on the air.
This is fascinating stuff. No better proof that news people really do believe that UFOs are real and they fully appreciate the machinations of airlines and government departments in refusing to acknowledge their reality. In other words, they know what’s going on. Enjoy this one.
Here is the writeup below the video:
Leaked newsroom footage of Jon Hilkevitch interview
A video surfaced in the spring of 2007 showing an unedited pre-interview discussion of the Chicago O’Hare Airport UFO sighting between Jon Hilkevitch (the Chicago Tribune transportation reporter who reported the Chicago UFO story) and Jim Wagner a news anchor with CLTV, a 24 Hour news channel in Oak Brook, Illinois.
The video shows both men having an off-air discussion about the amount of international media reaction to the UFO story as well as discussing United Airlines alleged “flip-flop” on the event and the FAA’s explanation as “weather phenomenon” that according to Hilkevitch’s sources “just doesn’t wash.”
Hilkevitch also mentions that photographs were possibly taken by a pilot with a digital camera and that the story is “the most read story in the history of CT.com (chicagotribune.com)” with almost a “million hits.”
