Sorry to bring up some really old posts, but:
This is not strictly true.
I can confirm that Zippo did send, to one or two of our news writers, some images that he said was evidence of his past claims. While he did do this, there are some important notes to mention here:
None of the evidence or claims made by Zippo to those staff members were sent up the chain of command (me) for full verification
As a result, none of the evidence Zippo sent to us was ever verified
