I think Kreskin is a crock... and he still has to prove that his
created "sighting" is the "largest sighting in history". As
proof of this he uses that fact that it was shown on TV. and
"thousands" of people saw it.

Well, guess what: that was not the first sighting to be shown on
TV. During the 'Bubba' flap in Gulf Breeze (1990-1992) there
were several times when TV crews filmed/videotaped Bubba.

Many of those sightings were witnessed by dozens of people and
shown on TV later.   It is my recollection, however, that at
least once and maybe twice the TV was live.

One of the TV tabloid shows of 11 years ago - A Current Affair -
had a reporter down in GB to see what was going on, to laugh at
the witnesses, if possible, and entertain the audience at the
expense of the GB witnesses. However, she became a witness.  How
many millions (not thousands) of people saw that TV show?

The ABC network featured a Bubba sighting in the early spring of
    1992 (note sure of date)  in a TV show on "weird stuff."  How
many millions of people saw that? A Japanese news crew in late
spring of 1991 videotaped Bubba.  How many millions saw that TV

Bottom line:  Kreskin has not proved his claim, that the Largest
sighting in history would occur at his whim.

(Note:  Fatima may have been the sighting with the largest
number of on-site witnesses.)
