I just called my local TV station. I wanted to know what would they do if a a bigfoot was dead in the bed of a truck, parked, right now, in their parking lot. Would they go out and look at it? Would it make the evening news?
The man I talked to said he'd for sure go look and take photos. But making the news was the job of the news manager, or title close to news manager.
Hope you call your local station and ask these questions.
