Urban Exploration will of course end up in the media at times, as any interesting hobby will. We don’t feel this is a threat to UE at all, as long as it is approached properly. The Wraiths are something of an enigma, being both more high profile and media friendly, while quite mysterious and secretive all at once. So far, all of our media experiences have been positive, no regrets here. We are open to contact from the media, but we do have policies established for such contact.
The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.

Given that the pastime does violate certain laws at times, we keep our identities secret. If you want to interview us, expect to sign a non-disclosure agreement (regarding certain sensitive info) and play by our rules (definitely fair rules, but rules none the less). Regardless, any story must not be misleading or misrepresenting Urban exploration/the Wraiths as something it/we are not. We support good, truthful journalism, not sensationalized tripe. But, we also want to enjoy it if we’re going to do it.
