In general, a live video film of a professional reporter who has a reputation for honesty who doesn't want to risk harming his name, would be a reputable source to believe. Especially if that sensational story of the Mashiach's coming appears on the various major news networks. Remember, most journalists clearly do not have a religious agenda, so they must be pretty convinced…
