David Paleidis on Coast to Coast Tonite

Its no secret David Paulides is a controversial figure in the Bigfoot community. One post on Cryptomundo by Loren Coleman criticizes him for propagating the M.K.Davis fantasy.

David Paulides, in 2009, allegedly was the author of several communiques in which he extended some of the M.K. Davis fantasy theories about Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson killing Bigfoot at Bluff Creek in 1967, and John Green, Bob Titmus, and others being behind a coverup of this “massacre.” He caused some folks to think he had some new, correct answers. Those “answers” crumbed like a house of cards when John Green decided to call Paulides on some of his accusations, such as the fact that the “Titmus” photos were of a pilot, and the “red blood pools” were color-filtered rainwater images. --Loren Coleman

In the same post Sharon Lee, one of the best journalist in the community, says this about David:

...Finally, the most difficult presentation to sit through was that of David Paulides….I had no idea who this Paulides guy was, but I guess I should have! In his words, he is the best researcher. His organization is the best. He doesn’t consider individual people researchers. He insulted Michael Rugg, the host of the event, by telling Mike that he was not a researcher, but just a museum. He then went on to talk about what a bad rap he gets, and how no other organizations will step forward to work with him...--Sharon Lee

On Paulides' North America Bigfoot Search site, they announce tonight's interview on the upcoming events page.

David Paulides will be on "Coast to Coast AM" this Sunday morning [sic] (Really Monday morning from midnight-2am) discussing the latest research that NABS has been working on. The discussions will center on the research conducted in the past versus todays eforts and findings.

"...past versus today's efforts?" Will this be an attempt to hit the reset button and distance Paulides from his earlier, more controversial stands?

Are we reading to much into this single sentence? Either way, even if he isn't planning on resetting his public relations image, most of the crew at Bigfoot Lunch Club feel he should--if not for himself, for the community.

Regardless it should be interesting tune in to Coast to Coast for the last two hours to hear what the new research David Palides is up to.

Bigfoot is Real is a 2 Disc DVD set. The first disc contains three documentaries; Bigfooting in Oklahoma, Tale of the Honey Island Swamp Monster, and Swamp Apes.

The second disc contains The Wildman of Kentucky.

10k bullets, a website that reviews films from arthouse to grind house, has an excellent review of the DVD set. Below is a short excerpt:

Disc one contains three documentaries, the first documentary is titled ‘Bigfooting in Oklahoma’ and it centers around a woman named Esther Schritter who at a very young age first encountered what she believed to be Bigfoot. After the initial set up in which she retells of her numerous encounters with Bigfoot. The remaining time is spent with her searching for Bigfoot and talking to other people who have also seen Bigfoot. Content wise this is a one sided affair as everyone involved are hell bent that Bigfoot exists and no counter argument is ever entered into the discussion.

The second documentary is titled ‘Tale of the Honey Island Swamp Monster’ and it revolves around to documentarians who went to shot some background footage ‘the Honey Island Swamp Monster’ and how they uncovered a hoax. This is easily the most entertaining documentary included with this set.

The third documentary titled ‘Swamp Apes’, once again follows the urban monster mythos prototype. This time around the focus is the different cultures over the centuries who have visited America and the animals like primates that may have brought over by them. This is a dry and times overly clinical documentary that never offers up any real answers.

The main center piece of this release is a lengthy documentary titled ‘The Wildman of Kentucky’ and it is located on disc two. Even though there is plenty of information offered up about Bigfoot and other urban legends. Most of the information has been covered elsewhere countless times before. Also while there are many questions posed. Too much is left up to the viewers own interruption and no real answers are ever put forth.

You can preorder the DVD set at where it is described as:
Amazing accounts of bigfoot from around the world. Are these eyewitnesses seeing an apparition or is this creature real? Listen to the riveting testimony of those who have encountered the beast first hand and decide for yourself.

Bigfoot or Sasquatch attributes from numerous reports include: The smell of a Sasquatch far exceeds that of a bear or other mammals, many cases report an intolerable stench when a Bigfoot is in the area. They vocalize in terrifyingly, high pitched scream like mannerisms, many recordings have surfaced in recent years.They knock trees with branches and logs, reportedly to communicate with each other over long distances. They throw rocks and boulders, there are countless cases with the creature throwing rocks at campers, even boulders from hill tops if disturbed. They live in family units, many cases report the sighting of not one but two or more individuals at a time, often with young in tow.They may have developed a language, many reports tell of a whinnying or gurgling whistle sound associated with their possible speech patterns. They leave very distinct footprints, many of these prints have dermal ridges and other anomalies that rule out a hoax. Is Bigfoot real? You will believe after exploring this fascinating collection.

Sasquatch Sighting Near Obama Vacation Home!

Self described right-wing propaganda blog, Scooters Report, has filed a post about a police call at 10:08 last Wednesday Aug. 25th 2010 regarding a "bigfoot-type creature". The post has been reprinted in full below:

Sasquatch Sighting Near Obama Vacation Home!

MARTHA'S VINEYARD (SR) - Local residents on this quiet island may not be sleeping so well since the reported sighting of a Bigfoot last night, just down the beach from where the First Family is vacationing.

An unidentified woman called Martha's Vineyard police Wednesday night at 10:08 to report a "Bigfoot-type creature" slowly moving along the beach in the moonlight. Police quickly alerted Secret Service agents guarding the Obama's home, who reported seeing nothing unusual, but as a precaution did request that First Lady Michelle cut short her evening walk.

While Sasaquatch sightings are not uncommon in Massachussetts, they are very rare on the island of Martha's Vineyard.

My comments: Holy-pope-on-a-rope, just reading this gave me chicken skin! They need to move the First Family to someplace safer, like maybe Afghanistan!

Scooter's report brings up a few journalistic red flags.
1. The obvious political slant
2. The lack of other supporting news sources on this
3. And, although not unheard, Bigfoot on an isolated island

None-the-less we did try to contact Police Chief Erik G. Blake and Executive Assistant Suzanne Cioffi of the Oak Bluffs police department, to confirm this report. While we have heard nothing yet we will have an update if they return our calls and emails.

To get an idea of the geography of this siting we have provided a map below.
