Blue Beam is too well known. Even 100 years ago. Everyone knows about Orson Wells.
Remember that Blue Beam was created when drive-in movie theaters were the most high-tech way people received information. Blue Beam, as it was conceived, was essentially creating a global drive-in movie.
The development of personal communication devices and virtual spaces means that either Blue Beam as it was conceived has little relevance (since who even looks up at the real sky anymore), or that the way a global "happening" will be presented will probably be different.
That's not to say the ability to create global-scale projections wouldn't be used. It's that ubiquitous network of implants and devices change the very idea of what it means to make a global-scale projection.
"There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission" is now "We've updated your optical implants."

Time to hoard me some ammo.
You guys are morons. Why the fuck would the media, the government, and the scientific community collaborate on a hoax? We finally find out we aren't alone in the Universe. All of humanity is rejoycing. Except you guys. You guys are sitting around being contrarian. I hate this board.
What a good global citizen.
To be fair it's probably just the banks who know its a hoax.
>more money for galactic exploration
>excuse to centralize and tax intra-solar trade even more
>mining even MORE moons
>make the Solar government official and outlaw independent colonies
>censor the network further and shut down more freelays
>sexual gratification from lying to billions of people
just a few reasons.
war of the worlds is probably playing on loop for all the cyber-sheep with optical implants
