In Praise of Richard D Hall

Updated on July 22, 2017

Richard D Hall


Back in 2011, I fell upon tough times. I was seriously down, and found myself house bound. Within my home, I couldn’t even face watching television. I must have been depressed; TV is something that has been a passion of mine.

After a spell of agonising over everything in the world, I decided to turn the television on again. I couldn’t face watching the screen, but I listened as though it was the radio.

The channel my TV happened upon was the now defunct ‘Controversial TV’, Sky channel 200. Owned by Edge Media, channel 200 was filled with mysterious, fascinating programmes that I had never experienced before. At first, I just let the words wash over me. I soon became fascinated by the programmes shown; On The Edge, Democracy Now and recordings from the Alternative View conference.


I was learning new things, things I’d never heard of. I became hooked on Channel 200. The highlight of my week became watching ‘Richplanet TV’.

The theme tune was an exciting start to the show, and then I was brought back down to earth sharply.

Richard D Hall, dour in his look and manner, would speak in a no-nonsense way. He reported on matters on interest – current affairs including those of an extra-terrestrial kind. He had his very own ‘Bullsh1t Button’, and would press is heartily when he reported news from the ‘Mainstream Media’.

The Mainstream Media, I soon learned, is a catch all term for the news we are familiar with, on the TV, in the papers, on the web. The BBC, The Daily Mail, The Huffington Post – all examples of the Mainstream Media. Richard D Hall asks that we suspend our faith in such organisations to really decipher and decide, are they telling the truth?

By contrast, the Alternative Media is filled with people telling the truth about what is really happening – the truth that lies behind the headlines. Notable Alternative Media people include Ken O’Keefe, Ian R Crane and Brian Gerrish.

However, my favourite Alternative Media journalist is Richard D Hall. I adore the fact that he is keen on the UFO conspiracy. I always have been myself. Richard is also passionate about revealing the truth about more earth bound atrocities such as terrorism, mass murder and kidnappings of children.

Though I don’t always agree with Richard D Hall, or his guests, I appreciate having my mind opened to other possibilities. I have learned not to trustfully take information I receive as sugar coated spoon-fed truth. I search for the real meaning behind the news that is picked to be presented to us. I for one cannot believe that certain stories are not worldwide news each and every day. For example, a missing plane, in an age where we as individual can be tracked by our mobile devices? Some things just don’t make sense.

Richard D Hall offers his theory that we are being kept in fear by the mainstream media – fearful of attack, of minority groups, of each other. If we are busy concentrating on those fears, we will not take a really good look at what is going on in the world.

Poverty. Homelessness. Mass Murder. Slavery. Injustice. Death Squads. Death Penalties.

Those all seem like headlines to me. They don’t often feature on the news, or on the headlines.

So, as Richard D Hall signs off; Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.
