What's the difference between a fiction writer and a UFO "expert"?

Let as talk about the differences between a fiction writer and a self-proclaimed expert in UFO=ET & conspiracy theory.
Fiction writer gets an idea, let us say a story about some breakaway
civilization presumably in contact with ET intelligences. This secret civilization has its own projects including a special space program of their own.
Our writer works with the idea and writes a science fiction novel and eventually publish his book.
Now let’s consider the UFO=ET expert. He gets the same idea and writes also a book and gives lectures, but he tells his audience that the imaginary breakaway civilization is a fact. Of course he cannot give the believers any kind of evidence, consequently he or she uses anonymous sources, misinterpreted and twisted facts and unreliable whistleblowers and fantasists.
What is he doing? As I wrote before, he is selling fiction as fact.
But of course, this action presents some personal and public problems, because IF he or she understands that his breakaway civilization is a fantasy, THEN he knows he is a liar. If he doesn't think that his idea is a fantasy, then our Ufologist have some serious problems with his perception of reality and he needs a therapist.
The social problem of course is bigger because our “expert” is misinforming his public. He is giving a fantasy as the Real Thing, and this is misinformation or disinformation. This is dishonest if not illegal.
Selling fiction as fact is obviously promotion of ignorance and confusion.
