Web sites dedicated to debunking urban legends and "netlore" picked up on the various giant hoaxes soon after they first appeared.
California-based Snopes.com, for example, noted that the skeleton image had been lifted from Worth1000, which hosts photo-manipulation competitions.
Titled "Giants," the skeleton-and-shoveler picture had won third place in a 2002 contest called "Archaeological Anomalies 2."
The image's creator—an illustrator from Canada who goes by the screen name IronKite—told National Geographic News via email that he had had nothing to do with the subsequent hoax.

One thing... I am open to the idea that these remains were found despite the circus atmosphere around many of them and the shaky journalistic times the reports mainly originate from... but... what is the theory as to why mainstream anthropologists (Smithsonian and Nat Geo, etc.) would "hide" them and "dump" these remains?
I'd think it might make someone's career... so why hide it?

No one thinks it's odd that these finds were made mostly
over decades in completely different parts of the county by
completely different people but 9 times out 10 we see the
word Smithsonian to end the article ? And I don't believe
that the New York Times was ever considered a tabloid.edit on 2-9-2013 by randyvs because: (no reason given)
