A YouTube video showing a strange dark object (shaped like a lightning bolt) hovering in the sky and then gradually disappearing behind a cloud has been featured on Fox News. The location of the sighting was apparently in Dayton, Ohio, near the Wright Patterson Air Force Base, rumored to be the "real" Area 51. Unfortunately, the person behind the YouTube footage, Tyler Glockner (of SecureTeam10), is widely considered to be a hoaxer.
TexasUFOs even received criticism for featuring a video originating from Glockner in a January 2016 article. The video was alleged to be a hoax, and showed a UFO in Houston, that, curiously enough, also showed a dark object hovering in the sky. In January, TexasUFOs was open minded about the footage, but that is no longer the case, because on top of all the articles written and videos made exposing Glockner for his hoaxing, there are (so far) no other reports of either of the UFO sightings to be found:
What might we make of the mainstream news reporting on hoax UFO videos? Are hoax videos simply the best for ratings, or is there something deeper going on?
Whatever the case, this sort of coverage is not a good sign for UFO Disclosure and takes away from credible UFO sightings, and the whistle blowers who have come out about the phenomenon. Case in point, this UFO sighting apparently occurred near the Wright Patterson National Air Force Base. If the video is proven to be a hoax, people who have spoken out about the Air Force base and its connections to UFOs and extra-terrestrials may be met with new, unfair skepticism. Like Nick Menza, the late and former drummer of Megadeth, Robert Porter, a member of the military, or Barry Goldwater, a US Senator:
