David Wilcock Issues Apology to Gaia TV, Claims Conspiracy by "Dark Alliance" to Destroy Conspiracy Media
Former Ancient Aliens pundit and Gaia TV host David Wilcock issued a public apology to Gaia TV for the alleged resignation letter that circulated under his name last July. In the letter, Wilcock expressed dismay over his financial situation and domestic violence he said he had experienced, and he accused Gaia TV of unethical behavior, including poor treatment of employees and deceptive editing of programs to make it appear that Wilcock endorsed “Luciferian” beliefs, potentially exposing him, he said, to violence from conservative Christian fans. In his apology, he took back the claims.
Wilcock did not confirm the authenticity of the letter directly but alleged that it had been taken “out of context,” which seems to be an acknowledgement that he did indeed write the letter. “Anyone who read this letter online did not know or understand why various things may have been said. None of this should ever have been made public,” he wrote. He said that the letter had been falsely used to attack Gaia’s creative and business practices. “These accusations are false and without merit. Given such, I apologize to Gaia, its employees and the entire Gaia community as I would never intend to disparage Gaia,” Wilcock wrote.
In his apology, Wilcock blamed online criticism and a fallout with “secret space program” fantasist Corey Goode for his decision to leave Gaia TV, which he describes less as a resignation than simply deciding one day not to show up at the office:
Based on the hostility directed at me online and the threat of a lawsuit against Gaia and me from Corey Goode, which is repeatedly referred to in the leaked letter circulated online as a legal matter that I did not want to get drawn into the middle of, I decided to stop going to work and eventually to not renew my contract with Gaia. This decision was difficult for me as I dedicated five and a half years of my life’s work to create meaningful content to share with our community.
Rather than belabor Wilcock’s lengthy and self-serving effort to backtrack on his claims from last year, I want to instead highlight the way Wilcock has shifted the blame to a vast conspiracy. He alleges that the so-called Dark Alliance, previously identified as a coalition of space aliens, liberal politicians, and Jewish bankers, is engaged in a conspiracy to destroy Wilcock personally, the Gaia TV online streaming service, and paranoid conspiracy theory media in general:
It was very obvious to me that a powerful group was violently resisting the work I was doing with Gaia on Cosmic Disclosure. There were incredibly malicious and slanderous attacks being made online against me, my various insiders and Gaia, by what I refer to as the “Dark Alliance.” This included personal death threats I received in July 2017, warning that if I continued working as the host of Cosmic Disclosure, I would be killed. […] Taken together, the threats and attacks we collectively went through all appeared to be a coordinated operation from a force outside of Gaia or its employee base. This force’s agenda was almost certainly to “divide and conquer.”
He added that the work of Gaia, Ancient Aliens, and the constellation of ufologists and ancient astronaut theorists who popular the conspiracy community should be known as the “Seeking Truth Movement” and praised Gaia TV for contributing toward “Full Disclosure.” That makes my writer’s skin crawl. In standard English usage, it should be the “Truth-Seeking Movement,” but Wilcock has never been particularly beholden to conventional grammar.
Wilcock alleges that the leaking of his resignation letter last year “caused our own public to turn on us,” which seems to be code for Wilcock losing fans and subscribers to his for-profit media productions. While the controversy could conceivably be part of it, I’d speculate that the greater part of any decline in Wilcock’s revenues could better be attributed to his disappearance from Ancient Aliens, his highest profile gig, as well as the many months of self-imposed social media hiatus he took. If your fans don’t see you, then they aren’t going to be buying things from you.
Chastened, Wilcock announced that he would continue to direct his audience to reruns of his Gaia programs, for which he presumably receives residual royalties.

Sounds to me like Mr.Goode's lawyers AND Gaia's lawyers spoke to Mr. Wilcock and his lawyers about Davis' bout of verbal diaherria against his former associates. A bruised ego and mental constipation, can cause someone like Wontcock to bite the hand the feeds him.

"And what Loeb calls "cosmic modesty" — the idea that it's arrogant to assume we are alone in the universe, or even a particularly special species."

"Seeking Truth Movement" is wrong? So when the Cap'n is with his imaginary waitresses he's not-pipe-laying, not not laying pipe? Writing is hard.

"Truth-Seeking" is a compound modifier of "movement," which is why the standard form is "truth-seeking." Your examples are gerunds, a different grammatical form.

Please to be explaining how pipe-laying is different from truth-seeking.

I've got it figured out. Corey Goode is a counterintelligence operative, and Gaia itself is a psychological warfare operation on the gullible American public. David Wilcock is one of their assets / useful idiots.

"I did care about him enough to not put on any type of public blog negative information about him, but apparently he doesn't care about me, and also I would like an apology, but then he would have to try to find a way to explain the further emasculating truth."

Hello Wilcock’s former girlfriend. I met him personally July 2018 as a budding journalist. I tried snagging an interview with David about his connection to Gladys Davis. He totally dismissed me and asked me to leave. I was wholeheartedly trying to get David some positive publicity and to give an audience a peek into the secret lives of Gladys and Cayce. As you know, David was housemates with Glady’s very own best friend, which I find so interesting. I don’t hold any personal vendettas towards him. What goes around comes around. I’d love to ask you some questions. Thank you for sharing your story and I’m sorry for the negative experiences in your relationship.
