14. Hiss...
The guy is a nobody asshole. No journalist would include their opinion like that in an article. No journalist would make bogus claims in an article, not allow the other party to respond even, and not name the party but wink-wink allude to them. We called him tonight, my editor did. The guy refused to admit he made any mistakes. I kid you not. And he told John that he did not like online reporters and usually avoided talking to them. Nice response, eh? When I have made an error in any of my work, I have always wanted to correct it and always do. This guy is either writing a hit piece or he is so arrogant that he thinks he can make shit up and no one will call him on it.

Seriously, don't get upset hon... i love that you are sticking up for me, but don't get upset. If you ask any important reporter, well respected reporter, they know how I am and for the most part, they respect me and the work that I have done. No one knows who this guy is and after this article, no one is going to care... because for him to make the claims he did, not provide the name of this reporter hounding this family (or who it was that sent the supposed postcards or even producing the postcards), but identify that person in all but name, not give that person a chance to respond, and getting so many things wrong is just really bad work at best. I mean really negligent shit. If he is not forced to retract by his publisher by tomorrow night, I will be very surprised. We sent them a detailed letter pointing out every single error. I really want him to produce this so called postcard of threats and I would love for him to tell me which daughter I supposedly met and what she was doing when I met her. Because I never met any daughter or girl, small female or even adult female other than Heather of that household. EVER.

And I honestly believe that he is not quoting Heather correctly, because Heather was not frightened of me. I wonder if she told him about the bomb threat during my meeting with her. That was messed up.

Luv ya Hissy :)
