The O'Neill Affair Continued

According to Kromlek, at the beginning of his last phone conversation with Ms. Marnie O’Neill she accused him in a most aggressive and hysterical manner of attacking a “highly respected Academic” and posting his personal details on the Internet, details which came from his OWN online Curriculum Vitae incidentally. The “highly respected academic” is Dr. John Casey.

So what is the connection here? Why did she seem do personally offended? Well Ms. O’Neill is, according to her title at the top of her stories in The Sunday Telegraph, a “Police Reporter”, while Dr. John Casey is employed by the New South Wales Police as a consultant on “cultural sensitivity” and “racial harmony” etc. Get the picture? There is every possibility that these two actually know each other professionally or maybe even personally.

This might account for the ‘raw nerve’ reaction of Ms. O’Neill and the ferocity of her threatening phone call to Kromlek. She then subsequently implicates herself further in the Darpist conspiracy web and digs herself a very large hole by supplying copies of two previously unpublished E-Mails from Kromlek for Darp to post up on his FDB Forum.

Will this reckless act prove to be a form of professional suicide? Surely this sort of blatantly unethical behaviour cannot be tolerated by her employers. A “Journalist” bound by strict codes of conduct and ethics supplying a partisan third party with personal E-Mails from an interviewee evokes terms such as “conflict of interests” and “professional misconduct”.

Kromlek feels fully vindicated on this matter and thinks it all rather ironic considering Ms. O’Neills shrill protestations to him that “there is no conspiracy between the Darpists and the Media”. He also smiles wryly to himself as he recalls cautioning her, during their first conversation, about involving herself too closely with Darp. It would appear she has already been fairly “dumped right in it” by her new “friend”. With “friends” like Darp who needs enemies?
We have certainly not heard the last of this matter.
Watch this space!
