Standard-Examiner: Weekly World News Plagiarized Fossilized Bigfoot Skull Story

This is the photo that ran with the Weekly World News story.
Mark Sal, the the Standard-Examiner reporter who broke the fossilized Bigfoot skull story is now accusing Weekly World News (WWN) of plagiarizing his story. Weekly World News is most famous for it’s Bat Boy story but has used Bigfoot many times on the cover (SEE Top 5 WWN Bigfoot Covers). It is hard to tell if he is flattered or upset, none the less, plagiarism is a serious charge.
In an article titled, “Plagiarized Bigfoot story gives big head to yours truly” Mr. Sal compares his story to the WWN:

WWN STORY: “I was looking for some fossils,” the 69-year-old “semi-retired” anthropologist told WWN, “and I was kind of drawn to something in the ground.” It was a rock, sticking up out of the dirt. “So I went and dug it out, and you couldn’t tell what it was ’cause the head was face down; all you could see was the back of it,” he said. “But when I dug it out you could see the face, perfect.”

S-E STORY: “I was looking for some fossils,” the 49-year-old “semi-retired” private investigator explains, “and I was kind of drawn to something in the ground.” It was a rock, sticking up out of the dirt. “So I went and dug it out, and …” Well, you get the idea.

    Clearly a case of Skullduggery…!

  4. mandors responds:

    Okay that picture is not the same at the rock the other guy was holding. That actually looks like what a fossilized bigfoot skull might look like. So either it’s not the same story or maybe the other picture was photo shopped.

    Expert?

    Might be mistaken but isn’t Weekly World News the peer review journal that published Melba Ketchum’s research?
