In 1994, ParaNet began a very ambitious endeavor - a nationally-syndicated radio program that would give people a chance to learn more about UFOs and the paranormal by imparting the knowledge that ParaNet has learned in the eight years of its existence. The ParaNet Continuum Radio Show was termed the \"60 Minutes of UFOlogy\" by Keith Ferrell, past editor and Vice President of OMNI Magazine. The show was Webcast on Sunday evenings in 2000-2002 and distributed by the ABC SEDAT system to our affiliates around the country. The Nationally-Syndicated programs are from 1994 through 1999. The Live Internet Archives represent programming from 2000 to Present and are the most up-to-date. Other broadcast archives are from programming that Michael Corbin did on a local Denver radio affiliate, 1280 KRRF.
When ParaNet Continuum Radio Program began syndication in April 1994, it was designed to expand ParaNet\'s BBS as well as provide entertainment and an educational forum in which to scrutinize often-hyped UFO and paranormal phenomena. ParaNet broadcast from 1994 through May 1999. The topics that we covered included UFOs, alleged alien abductions, government cover-ups, hoaxes and frauds, future science and other interesting and unexplained phenomena. The ParaNet Continuum Radio Program rapidly became known as the \"60 Minutes of UFOlogy\". However, as the program grew in scope, so did the investigative task and the awareness of our responsibility to research and present information free of as much editorializing and personal bias as possible. To further compound the task, we at ParaNet had to find a balance between entertainment and yellow journalism, and telling the public what sometimes was neither easy nor entertaining. Yet, we found that niche. And, we did it very well.
During our years of research and investigation, we have become aware of the absence of in-depth treatment of the unexplained by the main stream media. No doubt, all of us have questioned at times just how much is left out of the news, and how the news has been fabricated to reflect various agendas as well as cover political intrigue. Every thinking person should question the assumption they are getting the \"facts\" and the \"truth\" from the major media outlets of television, radio and newspapers, and ask: am I getting the truth in what I see on the six o’clock news and read in the daily papers? Most of you will agree that at the very least, the major media does not delve into the specifics behind any of the news that they report. In by-gone days, and in limited markets today, reporters did on the ground investigations that often took months, even years, in order to write the news. In this way, news is history, and is a significant element in our decision making process. In the media age of the 21st century, most reporters are entertainers, or \"talking heads\", reporting news written from major wire services and limited interviews with the cause celeb of the moment. Public opinion is dictated by what a very small number of global news markets want to tell you. Furthermore, we are not the only group of people who have tracked the decline of media integrity-Noam Chomsky, Michael Parenti, Ben Bagdikian and others have documented this dire journalistic situation for decades.
Though we left the airwaves due to circumstances beyond our control, we continued our weekly broadcasts via the Internet for the last several years. Our determination to report the truth has never waned. It is with this sense of commitment to plumb the deeper meaning of current events that led us to take a closer look.
Beginning in May 2002, a closer look debuted via ABC Satellite Services.
Death of Host Michael Corbin
March 19, 2008 — Michael F. Corbin, internationally acclaimed radio personality, founder of a national radio syndicated program “For A Closer Look”, pioneer of Internet-based alternative media and investigative reporting, has died at the age of 52.Michael suffered a massive stroke and was found in his car at the side of a Denver road by a passer-by.
His passing leaves a void and many questions. Michael was in the midst of several important investigative documentaries, many of which sprang from his vast repository of in-depth interviews. Some of these are located at his Internet media site www.4acloserlook.com. His earlier material is at www.paranetinfo.com.
Michael began his journey in the 1980’s, during the early days of the Internet. This was a time in American recent history when news originating at media sites on the Internet was considered more authentic than that found in the daily newspapers on the streets.
He was the go-to person, the information lynch-pin for other serious investigative journalists and researchers, civilians, government and corporate whistle-blowers, noted authors, victims of government and corporate crimes, judges, politicians, private investigators and priests.
Michael was one of this country’s few trusted resources for many investigators, whose work led them to tread on the wealthy, powerful, and corrupt; one of the few who would dare provide an honest, incisive venue for speaking out. Michael’s interviews explored the back-stories behind the cardboard, packaged news. Unlike sensationalist alternatives, or wild conspiratorial grabs made by some muckraking peers, Michael never went for the cheap shot, never catered to the vulgar, nor promoted meaningless distraction that so dominates mass media. He deftly extracted facts from interviewees and placed them under a remarkable analytical lens. By the end of the interview listeners had a memorable grasp of issues – Michael had done his magic again.
Michael brought a vast wealth of his own knowledge to the subject matter, one reason why his interviews were so educational and relevant to so many. He could instantly provide context to help make sense of the forces shaping all our lives. Michael was not just a skillful interviewer, he was also a trusted, compassionate confidante for many on the front lines of harrowing exposes. Michael never betrayed a confidence, never took advantage of a witness’ plight, and was privy to far more information than made it on air. He never “played” a story to further an agenda other than the truth. The thousands of interviews and recordings he made should occupy the interests of an honest Department of Justice for decades.
For example, some of his earliest work exposed the chilling connections to a deviant elite at the highest levels of various US political parties, involved in gruesome activities that were passed off as “the work of UFO’s”. Michael believed there was likely other intelligent life, in forms we would not easily recognize, but never believed for example, the cattle mutilations in Colorado were the handiwork of fabled “green Martians”. When he came to having proof of which humans did it and why, his life was threatened In a chilling “full circle”, his most recent in-depth interviews of the courageous Diana Washington Valdez who wrote “Harvest of Women”, provide some connections with his earliest exposes.
Michael always faced security challenges. Once, his studio was fire-bombed. Despite all this he continued, quietly setting a standard for what it takes to be an investigative journalist in these dark times.
Michael did groundbreaking work covering the 9/11 financial trails and linking those trails to powerful oil, land and military interests pursuing land grabs through eminent domain in Colorado and Utah, and the foreign ownership of proposed American toll roads intended to be built on those lands.
Indeed, Michael had made some recent decisions to bring some highly visible cases to the proper venue: the American justice system. To this end he had embarked on a joint partnership between his newly formulated production company, www.filomax.net and the Risk Investigative Agency run by Indira Singh. One of his last interviews and an initial documentary of this joint venture was the case of John Caylor, an investigative reporter originally from Enterprise Alabama.
Michael interviewed some of the most significant names in American recent history: Father Malachi Martin, Chief Justice Roy Moore, Ralph Bunch, Daniel Ellsberg, Paul and Phillip Collins, Jim Marrs, Stanton Friedman, Diana Washington Valdez, Carlo Calvi, Russ Kick, Dr. Judith Reisman, Steven Emerson, Maury Terry, Jonathan Levy, Gary Webb, William H. Kennedy, Dr. Imad Khadduri, Joel C. Rosenberg, Charles Upton, David Aikman, Rich Lowry and so many more.
Michael’s important body of work may be found at www.4acloserlook.com and at www.paranetinfo.com. Some of the interviews are still available for purchase. His producers and partners are committed to preserving Michael’s unparalleled journalistic legacy – a knowledge base of over twenty years of his interviews.
No one will ever be able to replace the safe harbor Michael offered those investigating the high crimes of an evil elite. Many are now hard-pressed to find an intelligent, reputable place to publicly present their findings. Often, Michael’s words of counsel to those who were exposing the unspeakable came from Father Malachi Martin: “this evil shall have its day, but it will only be one day”. Michael was a profoundly spiritual man who truly believed that we should never give up. He truly lived the words of the poet Lowell: Though the cause of evil prosper, yet truth alone is strong.
