But he won't come here because he's a rank coward, and he knows he will get handed his arse!
Quite correct and he knows it. He is the one safe in his own private echo chamber, full of buffoons who think him a hero. Some of whom pester him with flat Earth. I find it strangely ironic that he feels the same irritation with their ignorance as many feel with his!

I won't hold my breath that he has the balls to come here and argue with people who actually know this subject.

He just posted a YT video of him doing an opening of the package he got with the photo in it, proudly touting the date, the reference number, etc.

Just out of curiosity, is there a site that has an archive of the original press photos that were released, such as the ones that were used in the wirephoto that he's shouting about? I did a search, albeit a short one, and couldn't find one, but I know that the people here have a much better knowledge than I do of such things. Not that it would change the Blunder's mind about this, but it would be a nice resource to have.

Not sure about press photos but I thought the complete set were always available. There were catalogues like these and you could order a print:

.. Not that I've seen one myself

I actually have that Apollo 12 one, and have been very close to winning similar ones for Apollos 11 and 13. I also have the photography reports for Apollos 8 and 10, which reprint the entire photographic record as part of them (my Apollo 10 one is signed by Tom Stafford!).

It would be really useful to see a list of which images were released to the press, and when, but mostly I have to rely on sites like Historic Images and eBay for press photos like that. It would also be useful to find out the arrangements for licensing photos to companies that reproduced them for their own profit, like these:

I have a copy of 'Marketing the moon', which is an interesting read, but it could do with expanding the section on how photos were released.

There's a bunch of these on ebay:
