It's a hoax. And not even a good one.

I just spoke briefly with Carmine Thomas Biscardi, the notorious bigfoot hoaxer, late yesterday evening.

The press conference is still on, scheduled for today, at noon.

Amazing.

See the following links for current news on this sordid affair:

Dr. Jeff Meldrum, "bigfoot expert," weighs in on the controversy, at Scientific American's "60 Second Science" webpage:

Wonder if anyone has thought about a live net feed of video from the press conference?

We'll probably have to wait until tomorrow afternoon for all the gory details, but already Biscardi is saying "the 2nd round of DNA results" may not be available by tomorrow's press conference. Oh? What about a "first round?" Even then, xerox copies of alleged DNA analysis and supposed test results could fairly easily be faked.

You'd think that, at least, someone should provide a hi-res digital video (or x-rays, tissue and hair samples for independent testing, known forensic expert testimony, etc., if the three people primarily involved in this event didn't want to display the "body" itself, for which there is no legitimate explanation so far), as part of any press presentation, where the body is moved or manipulated in some way on camera, with close-ups, along with high-definition photos, but even that would not be proof, of course. Simply a higher degree of fabricated sophistication than is obviously evident.

A note in very small print was allegedly added to the bigfoottrackers.com site recently that says, "for entertainment purposes only," but I could not locate it on any part of their website myself.

Initially, the Rick Dyer and Matt Whitten team indicated, as did Biscardi, that the "body" was well over 8 feet in length. Now the dimensions being given almost precisely match the height dimensions of the "sasquatch" costume being sold for $499 by a company (and that also sells a similar "Yeti" costume, with white fur). Coincidence? I wonder what their sales records might reveal about the names and locales of recent purchasers? I can't imagine there have been that many sales of such costumes in the last few months, although there might have been a second-hand, or indirect purchase in this case.

The "Rikmat" team has also quite recently, since the initial announcement of the "body" being found, offered a special visit to the supposed area where the "body" was "found," for only $5000 per person.

All indications are that this is an intentional, coordinated hoax for fraudulent financial gain, and perhaps other purposes or agendas.

The fact that it appears the press conference, now set to begin in less than 6 hours, unless there is a last-minute cancellation, will still be held, raises a host of other very interesting questions as to motives and intent. I expect this event will be well-attended by credentialed press, who will have a field day.

Loren Coleman, in the link above, notes:

"By the way, for those that are misunderstanding anything that was said by me on any radio news programs, I am not going to be part of the news conference on Friday in California. I, however, will have some things to say about it."

Well, I should hope so.

I would also hope that any such statements would include the manner by which Mr. Coleman went from skeptic initially of this story to someone who was somehow covertly persuaded to nearly endorsed it. Exposing that process would, if openly detailed, provide further useful data for future reference for all concerned.

Stay tuned--this may become even more intriguing as events unfold. Intense, even.

The interpersonal aspects of this story, and the reasons behind this hoax, other than just financial, as a human interest story, would seem at this point the only remaining value or edification to be gained out of this scandal.

Well, the press conference was held, and as predicted, it was a fiasco.

Fox News TV carried a feed for about 30 or 40 seconds before the anchor started saying there was nothing to it, no evidence, and that they had more serious news to cover.

CNN did a live feed from the conference for several minutes, but also mentioned needing to cover serious news before going to commercial.

I suppose for those still curious, you can go to YouTube for the inevitable cam and ripped vids from the news coverage, but I think I'm done here for now.

Be careful what you believe, especially in lieu of any evidence.

Well, as usual, Biscardi seems to have latched onto a hoax in order to ride it for all it's worth (to his bank account anyway).

His “press conference” was a joke, presenting NO evidence. The “body” in the photo is obviously a slightly-altered, commercially-available costume, with some pork chitterlings from the Piggly Wiggly dumped on top for the photo op –- no, wait, make that OPOSSUM intestines, according to the “dna testing.”

Unless they come up with a different body, this one is toast. Or soggy synthetic fur.

Meanwhile, Boris Badinov is being flown in from Russia to “confirm” everything, kind of like the “confirmation” that comes daily that the Russian troops have withdrawn from the nation of Georgia. Wow, lying Russians and Georgia, from two different directions in the same week!

The two buffoons from the U.S. Georgia have, in addition to being caught in multiple lies and dishonest shenanigans, done wonders for heaping further derision upon truth-seekers everywhere, and Southerners in general. Thanks, you two idiots.

These guys are the type of under-educated, blowhard, arrogant dimwits that increasingly make up the rank-and-file of law enforcement at the local level in the USA. And you wonder why the police state is well on its way? With worthless nincompoops like these two mouth-breathers “protecting your rights,” scant cause to wonder. The Republic is doomed. The difference is that these two loons can’t hide behind their badges for immunity in this one–-this time they may find themselves on the other end of the law, before all is said and done.

Private exchange:

First hoaxer: "Found Bigfoot, yet?"

Second hoaxer: "Not Yeti!"

They laugh together. Count the rubes' cash. Time to go to the bank...
