The media have largely contributed to the popularity of the Bermuda Triangle. Between 1950 and 1974, newspaper articles and publishing books about the triangle unveiled to the public the unexplained mysteries of this region.
The public interest in the Bermuda Triangle began September 17, 1950. A reporter from the Associated Press, Edward Van Winkle Jones published an article in the "Miami Herald" about the Bermuda Triangle. In his article "Sea's Puzzles Still Baffle Men In Pushbutton Age", he called the region the "Sea Devil". He mentions several disappearances of aircraft and a vessel difficult to explain.
In October 1952, in an article entitled "Sea Mystery at Our Back Door" published in the Fate Magazine, George X. Sand reports a number of strange disappearances that occurred in the Atlantic. It will be the first to define the boundaries of the mysterious region that will become the famous Bermuda Triangle.
An article on Flight 19 "The Mystery of the Lost Patrol" was published by the American Legion Magazine in April 1962. The article's author Allan W. Eckert reports that the flight leader would have said: "We Seem To Be off course." "We Can not Be Where we are safe," "Can not see land." "We can not find west. Everything is wrong. We Can not Be Any of safe direction. Everything looks strange, Even the ocean." "It looks like we are Entering white water... We're Completely lost."
In February 1964 Argosy magazine publishes an article by Vincent Gaddis "The Deadly Bermuda Triangle". For the first time the famous name "Bermuda Triangle" is used.
In 1969, the book of John Wallace Spencer, "Limbo of the Lost" contributes to raise the triangle's popularity.
In 1974, the publication of Charles Berlitz's bestseller 'The Bermuda Triangle" will strengthen the belief of popular culture of the inexplicable Bermuda Triangle events.
