Why was this post removed?
We at Doubtful News have decided that Bigfoot news is currently too absurd to warrant discussion on our site. There is no solid evidence that Bigfoot exists. Yet, TV shows and cryptozoology personalities have assumed the reality of the creature instead of considering all reasonable options to explain eyewitness reports. That’s not science. It’s pure speculation.
Therefore, we have decided from this point to limit our coverage of Bigfoot to any ACTUAL quality news stories that arise that have some value, not rumors or disputes between personalities or humorous mention of Bigfoot in the media. Because of the tendency of too many in the pro-Bigfoot camp to attack critics (often personally) who question the evidence, and to hype speculation for web hits and ad revenue instead of providing well-thought out arguments, we have removed this post.
This site is designed to be a place for rational exchange. The lessons we have learned from posting Bigfoot stories is that rational exchange doesn’t happen.
For this post, Mr. Scharf was misrepresented by Fox News. Prior to receiving that information, we commented on the story as if it were factual. Unfortunately, that happens on occasion and we regret the error and annoyance caused to Mr. Scharf. Although we noted to him that we were pleased to provide a space where he could show the accurate facts of the story, he did not take kindly to that request. An archive of this post is available for those who wish to see the corrections that we made to appease Mr. Scharf. Other evidence is also available to show his personal replies to me via Facebook.
