History Channel Egg on their Face: Amelia Earhart Photo Bogus Japanese Blogger Discovers Book Published It Years Before She Disappeared

The History Channel is getting rocked for being a bunch of hucksters claiming to solve the Amelia Earhart mystery with one photo.
  However, a Japanese blogger has thrown cold water over the whole thing.   

NewsMax reports an 80-year-old mystery seemed to get a new development last week when experts released a photo they alleged showed Amelia Earhart alive in the Marshall Islands after her plane vanished on an around-the-world trip. But now a Japanese blogger is debunking the discovery.

Producers with a History Channel documentary recently found the picture in the National Archives and promoted it as new evidence indicating Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, survived a plane crash after they disappeared on July 2, 1937. The photo, they alleged, proved a long-held theory that the duo wrecked their aircraft and were subsequently captured by the Japanese.

However, on Tuesday, a blogger The Guardian identified as military history buff Kota Yamano published a post showing the image in question in a book from 1935—two years before Earhart even left on her trip.

“I have never believed the theory that Earhart was captured by the Japanese military, so I decided to find out for myself,” Yamano told The Guardian of his search for the picture. “The photo was the 10th item that came up.”
