UFO information is often flawed....
This is the cover of True magazine’s Flying Saucers & UFOs Quarterly (for Summer 1976):
As you can see, the Travis Walton story is listed as Travis Waltman’s Weird Story.
Inside, on Page 10, is the story, picturing Walton (as Waltman) being interviewed by Dr. James. Harder.
The caption shows Travis Waltman [sic] in the center of the photo.

This is just one of many errors we found as we scanned our UFO magazine collection (for another matter).
UFO material is replete with factual errors and so many dumb mistakes that it’s no surprise that academia, media, and sensible folks eschew the topic of UFOs out-of-hand.
