8. funny that you should post this...
We all know why you posted this particular part of the article.

But, Renner made loads of mistakes, in particular with regard to me. He never talked to me and got much wrong about what happened with Heather Connell, including me meeting her daughter. Never happened. His editors have already been contacted by my editor. I find it remarkable that he does not name me, but makes claims he cannot support and refers to me rather obviously. We have asked for him to correct his many errors. But I knew you would have this up in no time, and just this part too.

Don't you find it strange that a reporter did not seek comment from the person he is alleging things about? Or that he alludes to the reporter, even though he knows who the reporter is? Or that he leaves out entirely that Heather Connell met me of her own volition in a park - a stranger she did not know at all? Or that he adds a little thing called "self styled?"

Sounds to me like the guy has an axe to grind. Because if he really wanted to give the impression that Heather was indeed frightened of me, it would make sense that he omits that she met with me, alone, in a park for a good hour. He knows this, but left this out. When my editor asked him why he left this out, his response was "this is why I don't talk to online reporters." Strange don't you think?

The point is, not so much that this guy got it wrong, but that you were so eager to post only that part of it in your non-stop attacks on me... which others have made rather obvious already in this thread.

But I guess this sort of blows your earlier argument out of the water... that I had never met the Connell family.
