Is he just a hoaxer or are the debunkers doing there work and trying to tell everybody he was wrong?!

The first thing I came across to started making me think it was all wrong was how he had combined the 2012 connection from the mayan culture and mixed it in with Sumerian culture. I know some cultures tend to have ties in belief structure but the Mayan and Sumerian seem to far apart to have a connection.
For those who don't know the Mayan culture they had a calendar system one was called the short count and the other the long count. The short count if I remember right dealt with their holidays. The long count was an astronomy colander, basically calculations on where the stars should be in the sky. To this date their calculations are only off by seconds. The calendar ends officially on 2012.
After learning that I started to notice how Sitchins tied in other cultures as well some close to Sumerian and other not even close.

there is a planetoid recently discovered, traveling in an orbit that matches sitchin's description, and there's so much evidence of technology approaching and even surpassing our own in ancient societies.
