Ketchum's Publicist Speaks Out Regarding "Rejected" Bigfoot DNA Paper


The damage control is in full swing. The Ketchum camp's public relations girl, Robin Lynne Forestpeople (yes, that's her name on Facebook, also see Blueberry Bagel story), just responded to statements made by Russian scientist, Igor Burtsev, that Dr. Melba Ketchum's Bigfoot DNA paper was rejected by U.S. peer review journals and sent to Russia instead. Lynne posted the following statement on the Forest People Friend's Facebook group just minutes ago:

"In regards to what is being said . The only thing that happened with the paper was at one time it was sent back rejected pending revisions. They didnt even read it all. this is a long paper 50 pages. This is what Igor is referring to The REVISIONS HAVE BEEN DONE AND THE JOURNAL HAS THEM NOW. They are now reading the paper. I have read the paper myself it is very indepth. and long. Extremely scientific. This is why it is talking so long. This is what Igor is referring to. In Russia they very much believe in the forest people . That is why it is also in review there. It is being reviewed in the U.S. as well as Russia. The large amount of information takes alot of time to be though. Also this is a topic never been done before. All this adds up to taking alot longer to approve." - Robin Lynne

    19. I agree Anon 1:23. The problem is that most of the people who are complaining and attacking aren't really "Bigfooters." They are what I refer to as CAVE people (Citizens Against Virtually Everything)

      For those who believe that Ketchum hasn't stuck her neck out...you gotta be kidding. Whether you believe her or not; whether you think she is sane or crazy. To come out with this info, allow yourself to be interviewed, etc. is indeed sticking your neck out. This is nothing like the Georgia hoax. The Georgia hoaxers did not depend on sasquatch hunting as a source of income or career. Ketchum has written a paper based on similar work that she does for private clients. By the way, I have not idea about how wonderful or poor her business DNA Diagnostics was. (I realize that one group gave the business an "F" rating. But, go check the results for any business during the economic depression we have went through. General Motors, Ford, many large banks, etc. have receive "F" ratings over the last few years. Primarily because of bankruptsy.)
      Again, I must restate that the results or your opinions have nothing to do with her "sticking her neck out." It is easy for us to write anonymous comments about our biased opinions. It is an entirely different situation when I post my comments, give you my real name and a picture of me along with my address and a means to find out everything about my personal life. Sorry, that is definately "sticking your neck out."

    20. This is ridiculous. It's not just the haters. Some of us want to know the truth, whatever it is, and are willing to listen to any credible source.
      Don't you get it??? Melba Ketchum is not a credible source! She's a joke, and her paper is useless no matter what it says.
      Being a so called "footer" doesn't automatically have to make you gullible. Hold these people to a high standard, and demand proof that's credible enough to silence even the harshest hater.

    24. Hey "No real name posted",
      I love what you wrote, you are right.
      Can I use your CAVE people concept in the future? I love it, lol.

      Oh and all the people that think Melba is not credible? I would have to say that someone who actually knows how to do DNA testing is credible. She lost her credibility in your eyes because she took so darn long to get the results out. You lost faith in her ability to get the job done. Since she didn't get it out when you wanted it out places her in a bad light, when actually it shows due diligence on her part. Something most complaining people don't understand.
      I know this last part personally. I work in engineering and it's the same, if you rush to get something done you are going to make mistakes and get bit in the ass for it. You have to take your time, dot all the i's and cross all the t's. If you don't the result will be drastic failures and possible the end of your career.

    26. Chad, you may be an engineer but have no clue how taxonomy and classifications of undocumented species are typically performed, nor does ANYONE on this board seem to have a clue about getting a legitimate scientific-research paper peer reviewed and published.

      Obviously Ketchum doesnt either. IF she actually were legit (she isnt) she wouldve done the same as every other scientist, for instance presenting evidence for unknown primate or human haplotypes and staying away from her idiotic public statements.

      Just wait: Smejas tissue ID will come back as a common animal likely bear. Sykes will complete his study using some of the same source material as Ketchum too.....and all will come back as human or known organism results. Melba's paper may be real but her science and conclusions are NOT, mark it down tonight...remember I told you so.

    6. How could there be 50 pages of citations on a paper that has been submitted, involving a topic that is "new". In reality, when submitting a paper for peer review, the only citations that are to be used are scholarly, peer reviewed citations that would be generally accepted as true and factual. There wouldn't be many papers that would fit that criteria with this study, hence the works cited, or citations you speak of, would be very brief.

    10. Because it is new is WHY it is 50 pages. We dont know everything yet. This is a study on one area of it's biology. You could fill volumes as more information is obtained for years to come.

    12. 50 pages? I have never read a peer reviewed journal article that was 50 pages. I think I read one that was about 20 pages in American Naturalist, but I have never heard of anything that long. Can one of you name a fifty page journal article dealing with biology?

      Delete
    13. It needs to be longer because it's a new subject. In an established field, authors can just say, "I used X method" and cite to the article describing the process. Everyone knows what the author is referring to already. In this case, it's a whole new field, so Ketchum needs to document every single step she took in detail. She can't just present her conclusions without showing her work.

    14. 50 pages in manuscript form, not published form. There's a difference.

I have read the paper myself (Run-on sentence) it is very indepth. and long. ("and long." is not a complete sentence.) Extremely scientific. ("Extremely scientific." is not a complete sentence.) This is why it is talking so long. ("This" refers to what - "Extremely scientific?") This is what Igor is referring to. ("This" refers to what? "It taking so long?") In Russia(,) they very much ("very much" belongs at the end of this sentence - it doesn't make sense here - if if you insist, use proper puntucation "they very much believe" is not gramatically correct.) believe in the forest people .

Ketchum is already under fire and it's not helping her situation to have someone like this releasing statements for her. It makes her come across even more unprofessional and crazy. How can she expect anyone to take her seriously when the person releasing information for her is using poor grammar and writing at a 5th grade level!?

  33. .

    To my left sat a distinguished microbiologist, a scientist whose name is known all over the world but who keeps a low profile in his adopted town of Las Vegas. Two seats to my left was a former cop turned author and Bigfoot researcher named David Paulides. And to my right was Dr. Melba Ketchum, a DNA researcher who found herself in the middle of an unexpected but career-threatening controversy. It involves the hairy gent with Size 18, triple-wide feet, who is known by many names all over the world, but answers most often to his iconic nickname: Bigfoot
    Before I was allowed to see any of the key research material, I had to sign a nondisclosure agreement. I was thrilled to be among the first to see the information, but it has driven me crazy ever since. The only public utterance I’ve made is a prediction two years ago during a taping of the KLVX public affairs program Nevada Week in Review. Because of what I learned that fateful night, I made what seemed at the time to be a wacky, off-the-wall prediction during the program — that dramatic news would surface sometime in 2011 about the enigmatic beast known as Bigfoot
    The well-meaning Dr. Ketchum naively assumed that the world of science would welcome her data with open arms and open minds. Her initial draft of a scientific paper unwisely referred to the existence of a Bigfoot-like creature, and she was certain the information from her study would receive a fair hearing from the scientific world. My friend the microbiologist gave her the sad-but-true news that no mainstream science journal in the world would ever publish a paper, or allow for an honest peer review, of any paper that mentioned Bigfoot or Sasquatch by name. Unlike my TV prediction, that one proved prescient in the extreme.
    In the ensuing years, there have been numerous attempts to sabotage and backstab Ketchum’s project. Leaks appeared in scientific forums online in an apparent attempt to torpedo her credibility even before the study’s findings were made public. The Bigfoot community has been even more vicious, mostly because so many of the true believers have staked out their own turf and do not want to see a scientific interloper like Ketchum upstage their often ridiculous assertions or to undercut public interest in the 800 or so cable TV shows about the search for Bigfoot.
    Here is what I can say legally, now that Ketchum has lifted the cone of silence: Scores of hair samples were sent to a dozen well-respected DNA labs across the country. The people at the labs weren’t told anything about the samples. They performed DNA analysis in the blind, then sent the remarkable findings back to Ketchum. I’ll put it this way — this is spooky stuff. The results are unequivocal: The hairs are not only from an unknown species, but they show a common link to humans. In other words, whatever these creatures are, they share a common ancestry with humans dating back about 15,000 years. Half of the DNA in the samples is simply unknown. The blind tests conducted by various labs weeded out known species such as bears or wolves. And in the end, they were left with the completely uncomfortable conclusion that the hairs came from a primate species previously unknown to science.
    Since Dr. Ketchum made her premature defense of the study, responding to unfortunate leaks, an army of armchair critics have already dismissed the results without waiting to see the actual data. That’s not the way science is supposed to work, but it is exactly how modern science operates. It’s as much a religion as Catholicism or Mormonism, and anything that falls outside the accepted scriptures must be ridiculed.

    1. This is more precise: a species previously unknown to genetic science: which means us, Denisova, and Neanderthal. Still many known options in the paleolithic record.

    3. Real journalists don't sign NDAs.

    4. They do if NDA's have a defined expiraiton point after which a journalist starts at an exclusive position.
      By the way, you realy never heard of George Knapp?

  37. If Melba is paying this "publicist" more than a blueberry bagel, she got robbed. I would certainly expect a publicist to be able to communicate in complete sentences, instead of 3-word fragments like a 5th grader with a new cell phone.

    These clowns all deserve each other.

  39. "I have read the paper myself it is very in depth. and long. Extremely scientific." I would think a publicist would have a better grasp of spelling and grammar. Perhaps this is indicative of the quality of Melba's DNA study.

    2. Sure does. Ketchum is blowing this thing in such a huge fantastic way.

      Mulder on the BFF is still her biggest cheerleader.

  40. Sitting here back in old Australia I've gotta say that many of these viscious, mysogynist posts are so mean and nasty, but when you Americans put your minds to it you can really put some funny material out there. Love the post about the burritos. It had me laughing out loud here at the front desk at the library I work at. I've been following the Ketchum process multiple times daily for over the last 2 years, so if all this goes to shit I'm gonna lose some serious face with a lot of people around me who are gonna split their sides laughing at me.

    1. Multiple times daily? There had not been a hell of a lot of info on it, and that was one of the red flags(lies about required secrecy). Tons of debate and speculation, though.

      Don't feel bad, mate. You probably learned a little about genetics and there is nothing wrong with that.

  41. this is a disaster for anyone who wanted this study to be conducted in a sane, responsible and professional manner. giving anything to melba ketchum after her own business floundered so dismally,... lost and missing samples, reports never completed or delivered, customers put off and finally ripped off...who in their right mind chose ketchum to do this study? who was responsible for deciding she was the one lab in the country to make history with a groundbreaking dna study, when she could not complete standard cat/dog/horse dna testing? i thought paulides was a detective? how about doing little research into the labs professionalism before handing over 100+ specimens.

    and justin smeja? what an idiot liar poacher drama queen attention hore he is.

    and the lack of any sense of judgement on the part of the "bigfoot community." if any of these issues were raised before, you were labeled a hater. absolutely no ability to make even common sense judgements on any of this. just knee jerk defensiveness and posturing. and melba herself is a case study in personality disintegration. first she morphs through 'sally." then she supposedly rolls out a little forest elf girl. people BOTH OF THESE "pr" people were/are ketchum. on facebook you can name anyone an admin, they can post under their own name and dont need to post under someone elses name and introduce themselves as "sally here.'
    idiocy, lunacy and stupidity. and it will continue as long as the lies keep fooling people. It's a 50 page article, its extremely scientific, its just to dumb people WAKE UP ITS OVER.
