The New York Times' misinformation about Roswell, July 9th, 1947
Haught for Haut? W.W. Brazel for Mac Brazel?
What about the mention of forty-three  other states in the Union (and worldwide) that reported flying saucers in the time-frame?
Some of those other sightings do show up in newspaper accounts, which are reproduced in the book, cited here before, Flying Saucers Over Los Angeles: The UFO Craze of the 50's by DeWayne B. Johnson and Kenn Thomas.
It seems that the summer of 1947 was, indeed, a fecund UFO period.
And Roswell was just one of many strange accounts that newspapers took notice of.
What's interesting is how The NYT dismissed Roswell by lauding a weather guy as the discoverer of the balloon truth. This was journalism of a shabby kind, certainly, and goes to explain why Roswell never made it as a major news item or sensational story. It was suppressed by journalistic indifference more than the skeptical suggestion that there was nothing to the story in the first place.
Context (and accuracy), in history and everything else, is supremely important.
