    "Mermaids: The body Found".??? A fictional Documentary?? What an oxymoron. What kind of science is it when parts are true and parts are imaginary? This amounts to a half truth; and a half-truth is a Blatant Lie. Animal Planet, Discovery Channel and the like should not air these shows. I would have enjoyed it more had I seen this on the Sci-Fi channel or Cinemax. Science has no room for poetic/artistic licence.
