Walter Cronkite

In the 1950s, Walter Cronkite, "the most trusted man in America," was part of a small group of reporters sent to an island in the South Pacific to observe a test of a new Air Force missile. The reporters were not allowed cameras or audio equipment, so they had to write any information down as quickly as they could while touring the launch pad and missile. Security personnel and guard dogs enforced this rule. Cronkite and the others were escorted a safe distance from the launch pad while the missile was prepared for launch.

He was often cited in viewer opinion polls as "the most trusted man in America."

As the missile fired-up for launch, a disk-shaped aircraft 50-60 feet in diameter entered the airspace, hovering about 30 feet from the ground. Air Force security personnel scrambled, running toward the UFO. The missile then ignited and launched into the air. A blue beam of light shot from the aircraft, hitting the missile, a security guard and his dog, freezing all in place. The missile floated in mid-air about 70 feet from the ground while the guard and dog stood motionless. Then the missile exploded and the intruding disk vanished. Both guard and his dog were freed unharmed.

All the reporters were escorted to a bunker and left there for about a half hour. Cronkite and the others were then taken out of the bunker and met by an Air Force colonel. The colonel informed the reporters that what they just saw was staged to test their reaction to UFOs; to prove to them that witnessing new aircraft technology can be shocking. Thus is the reason for all the reports of extraterrestrial flying saucers. The reporters were also told that since the test was for media reaction only, they could not report on it.

Needless to say, Walter Cronkite never believed the military's explanation.
