Let them hate so long as they fear.
Some clarification in one location of my many media statements, mainly because there are great many conspiracy theories out there.
My story and answers have been the same throughout. But here is a summary for the record since I’m sick of having my words misconstrued ignored or deliberately lied about. I have been available to ALL media at all times, even Red Radio, without fear or favour.
Many people have defamed me and I am collecting their defamations of both me and father, but Brian Rudman, Martyn Bradbury and Peter Aranyi are amongst the worst offenders, their hatred of me has clouded their judgement seriously. Russell Brown disappointed me with his rant-fest including links to a crazed serial stalker and convicted harasser. Brenden Sheehan is also sailing close to the wind, but that ratbag has other issues far greater than with me.
So here is a rapid fire Q+A to answer questions that have been asked and answered many times but terminally stupid people or wilful liars like Greg Presland can’t seem to get through their thick skulls.
1. Did I get paid for the story by anyone? – No, categorically no.
2. Was Stephen Cook paid? - No, categorically no.
3. Was Bevan Chuang paid? - No, categorically no. Not by Stephen Cook or myself.
4. Was she offered jobs, cash, money for stories? - Not by me or Stephen Cook. She was made an offer from Woman’s Day, but no deal was arranged, only an email from Woman’s Day to me to pass on. She has however spoken to other sources of mine about being offered money, and interestingly after declaring on Facebook she would no longer be talking to media she has continued to drip feed information to the NZ Herald after being contacted by Lincoln Tan. I fully expect that we will see her appear soon in Woman’s Weekly, which coincidentally is another APN publication. One has to ask the Herald and APN if any deal has been struck, since despite her claims of not speaking to the media she has spent three days giving stories to them. It is hard to continue to believe she is a woman of her word. Read more »
