Royce Myers – The UFO Watchdog

When Royce Myers went to a UFO convention in the early 1990s, Mexican UFO promoter Jaime Maussan informed him that stars were parts of vast alien “motherships,” which were moving slowly across the sky every night. This (and other experiences) convinced him that some (or many) of those who are studying and promoting UFO study might not be looking at the subject with a logical mindset. He believes that the situation has gotten worse since then.

With that in mind Myers founded the UFO Watchdog site in 1998 to investigate and document abuses of trust and lapses of logic and sanity in the field. In 2003, Myers was sued for libel by UFO personality Sean David Morton. Nothing that Myers had published on his site was found to be untrue and Morton was ultimately ordered to pay Myers’ $16,000 in legal fees. We talked about this and the recent sentencing of Morton and his wife for attempting to defraud the IRS out of $4,800,000 and various private citizens of thousands more.

In the 1900s, Myers also investigated UFO sightings and cattle mutilations, and spoke  about some strange and inexplicable situations and reports he received. In the last half of the show, we also talked about other recent scandals and issues in the field, such as the Stan Romanek story and the Peruvian mummy controversy.

    I have been listening to Radio Misterioso for a long time. Royce Myers, who are you?
    Jaime Mausan a promoter? You cannot call a journalist a promoter or actually make nonsense statemets. The network Maussan has built along these years have documented several UFO sightings and thanks to him thousands of Latinamericans are watching the Sky day and night.
    Peace.

    The whole discussion about Sean David Morton reminded me of this comic…

    I admit it. I have no idea who Sean David Morton is or what he had to do with Ufology or the paranormal, so I don’t understand all this fascination with his downfall. I guess I understand why this Myers guy went on about him for most of the broadcast. After all Morton tried unsuccessfully to sue him so now he feels doubly vindicated that Morton’s going to prison. But for those of us who weren’t around back in the day, when we hear about Morton, we’re baffled by the anomalist community’s obsession with his fate and just shrug.

    I’d never been to Myer’s site before (not familiar with UFO Watchdog) and checked it out during the podcast. Frankly, I think several of the names on his Wall of Fame belong on his Wall of Shame. But he’s free to admire who he wants. It sounds like he’s walking away from all this anyway, so I doubt I’ll look at his site again.

    I wish him happiness and success in his life in the real world.
