Media has an important role in the case:
Nowadays, the means of communication have a regulating role in our society. They control the flow, quantity and quality of information to be spread. Several episodes of History were directly influenced by the media (...). In Ufology, it's not different : the means of communication, especially at this end of century, are essential to a reeducation on this subject. (...)
Nobody can indulge oneself in keeping an information only for one's own. The world has changed. So as Ufology. (...).
Ufology is becoming more and more accessible. There are news coming from everywhere, and it is impossible to ignore it. One great example of this is the Varginha Case which, once spread through the mass media, created great controversy and aroused the public interest for criticism, information and even jokes. However, the most important in this Varginha Case's exposure was the reaction of the institutions that, according to Ubirajara and Pacaccini, are involved in the capture operation of two biologically non-classified beings.
As they realized that their secret activities could be detected at any moment, certain members of the Army, Fire Department, Military Police, health service and universities had a defensive attitude. In other words, they showed much more concern than they should ... To Ubirajara Rodrigues, this was the result of a pressure that only the press could make against the authorities : " We have to admit that the media is the major ufologists' weapon. If we didn't pass everything on to the media, the case would be stagnant ... At the moment we realized that the things were getting dangerous to us, we soon gathered the [major Brazilian] ufologists and decided to divulge everything through the media".
Pacaccini, without any fear, affirmed (...) : " I am not afraid of saying that the worldwide Ufology owes a lot to people like Luiz Petry (see picture), producer of "Fantástico", who is producing the program's reports with an incredible seriousness".
However, the researchers didn't reveal yet all the information they have. There are a lot of details about the case that need to be cleared up and publicly said, but this haven't been done yet due to security reasons, specially the witnesses' security. They assure that, when the right time comes, everybody will have access to all the information on the creature secretly captured in Varginha.
