Cosmic Connie scoops the NY Times again?*
Okay, maybe "scooped" is stretching it a bit.
But at the very least, I did give an early alert regarding events that have now come to pass.
On December 3, 2007, I published a blog post (accompanied by what several folks have deemed to be one of my greatest achievements in PhotoShopping), regarding Dan Hollings, the Internet marketing wizard behind the original DVD of the hit New-Wage infomercial The Secret, and Drew Heriot, the director of the original DVD. These two fine gentlemen have apparently been screwed over by Rhonda Byrne and her US bidness partner, Bob Rainone. At the time, legal proceedings that had not yet been publicized were going on behind the scenes but I wasn't exactly at liberty to write about 'em so I didn't.
Anyway, now it's official – or, rather, the "secret" is out – and you can read all about it in Allen Salkin's article of April 26, 2008 in the New York Times. And John Curtis, who crusades against fraud in the selfish-help industry (is that a redundancy?), has just sent out an email alert about the NY Times article.
Just remember that you read the news here first (or most of it, anyway, along with a lot of superfluous blather about me).
Now if you'll excuse me, I must get back to the never-ending task of pseudo-journalistic investigation, which consists of frequently checking my email "in" box to see if any more anonymous tips, scandalous secrets, or particularly stoopid New-Wage spam have arrived. It's a tough job, being a phony journalist, but you, Dear Ones, are worth it.
