Back in August, Discovery Channel aired what they presented as a documentary about C. megalodon, the long-extinct giant shark species. The film was widely criticised for presenting the opinion that the megalodon still exists, contrary to scientific consensus and every shred of documentation available. It was akin to Discovery presenting “Expelled” as insightful and factual.

Anyway, the absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence. One of George Monbiot’s readers, though, has found clear evidence of fakery in the documentary. Shameful.
