I’m sure they’re not laughing now

In writing the book, obviously I had to recall what happened that morning at the desk, the words that were exchanged. And I wasn’t in a position to ring Channel 9 and ask for a copy of my final show, because — let’s just say — things didn’t end well. And I didn’t want to give anybody the satisfaction of laughing at me when I asked for a copy of it. It’s just like, so I couldn’t remember word for word four years ago exactly the words that were said. So shoot me.”

    It’s her truth. Which is not the same as actual truth, and it might happen to alter the actual truth in ways that favour her, but as it is her truth it is superior.

    LOL….Wilkinson told porkies and got caught out.

    Wilkinson is a liar.

    Fitzsimmons knows his limitations which is why he employs a number of pretty research assistants. his book on Breaker Morant was impressive because of this.

    If you merely rely on memory you are going to slip up.

    What narcissist wouldn’t have a home recording of their last ever appearance on morning TV?
    You know, just to play over and over in self praise and personal ego stroking.
    There was never any need to do fact checking from the station’s recording.

    Fitzsimian is an average writer of historically based novels.

    Exactly right Old School. She probably plastered it all over effing social media.
