If you are one of the many people who have forwarded copies of an “incredible story” about “endangered lives” to me or if you were thinking about sending it to me, please read this:

Thank you for thinking to send me what you received.

As a responsible blogger, however, I cannot just publish unconfirmed reports like this.  Unless the whistleblower is willing to talk with me him/herself so that I can start to confirm some of the allegations, to simply reproduce what I received might be publishing defamatory allegations that have no factual basis and no way for me to confirm or disconfirm them.

If anyone who is actually a party to the events described in the email gets in touch with me, I can also put you in touch with a mainstream journalist who has more resources than I do to pursue the story.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
