The Lost Tribe pictures may not be what they were decribed to be

What a shame that we always have to be a little skeptical of information we get.

We know to question the objectives of opinionated articles and editorials, but who would have thought that there was an agenda behind the pictures I posted a few weeks ago about a preciously undiscovered tribe in the Amazon.

It seems (if we can believe this latest report)that the photographer was actually aware of this tribe for decades, if not more. True, it was an un-contacted tribe, but not unknown. He wanted to bring their existence to the awareness of officials who allow logging in the area.

Maybe a small difference, but here is a recent release pointed out to me by one of our blog members Shelia. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/jun...

Thanks Shelia.

I am skeptical about any information I receive from anyone. There is always an agenda, well intentioned or not. Words are tricky things and the way that they can be manipulated really amazes me. I talked to my son last week on the phone and asked him how he was, he said "okay". That could have so many meanings I cannot count them. It could mean, I was in a car wreck, but I am not going to die, or it could mean I just went out for dinner and am feeling very good about myself or maybe it means "none of your business".

Anyway, if you are talking to someone, you can be skeptical and ask questions, but if it is print from anywhere, especially off the wire or internet, read carefully and still doubt that you are getting the full unbiased story. That is what I do anyway.
