The local TV news crew that claims to be "telling it like it is" happens to be telling it like it isn't.
The local crew of Sasquatch/UFO/chupacabra chasers are touting a scoop that an "alleged bigfoot body" is coming to Phoenix. Here's a New Times scoop: There's no such thing as a bigfoot body.
The story -- the number-one featured story on the CBS 5 website at the time of this post -- is that a man who has confessed to Bigfoot hoaxes in the past is serious this time and is driving the Bigfoot corpse around the country and charging people for a glimpse.
Heck, even southern Arizona's famed "The Thing" in Dragoon looks about 10 times more realistic than the Bigfoot on a roadshow.
By our count, this is CBS 5's fourth story in the past couple of years offering up possible evidence of Bigfoot, which surpasses our count of CBS 5 stories on chupacabra sightings -- which was up to three.
If you've ever been minding your own business when you suddenly were kidnapped by extraterrestrials who anally probed you for hours in a lab on their spaceship, please contact the CBS 5 investigators by clicking here.
