How serious are the allegations that the flight recorders were
substituted to protect Airbus ? Are they as serious as allegations that
aliens shot down TWA800 or are there serious facts that lend credibility
to this ?

I do know that there were serious questions about engine manufacturers
doing the investigation of their own engines. (but questions only, no
proof that the investigation came to a wrong conclusion)

However, the fact that an investigation on one incident may have been
flawed does not affect other investigations of the many problems of the
A320, nor does it affect that once the plane was debugged after a couple
of years of beta testing in production, it has become a fine plane.
