Short answer: NO!
That’s the question I’m addressing here: Do I do online character assassination? And the clear answer is, of course, no. I do not. All I’m doing is presenting facts publicly, not behind the closed doors of a courtroom, where 95 percent of what actually happens goes unreported and unknown by the vast majority of the public.
Attorneys, in court, perform character assassination. It can last for a day or more. Usually, it’s not true, it’s only bits and pieces, it’s razzle-dazzle, it’s a circus act and dramatic showmanship. It’s one side of what is often a very broad and complex story. In haste, these attorneys take bits and pieces of information and construct a character and a life from them that does not give a complete picture; they try to confuse people. They present only what that they want the court or the jury to believe. They leave out stuff. Lots of stuff.
What I do is factual and concise, and it comes directly from court documents.
I live in the real world. I get factual, concise documents from public records that are certified, notarized documents … affidavits and the like. It’s painstaking work that I do to be accurate.
The attorneys in court — each one of them has a dog in the hunt. If you’re a prosecutor, you’re trying to show all the bad things you can about the defendant and as much positive information you can about your client, the plaintiff. If you’re a defending attorney, you obviously try to do the opposite — show your client, the defendant, in the most positive light possible and paint the plaintiff in the most negative light possible. What you wind up with is a skewed view of what each individual really is like.
What I try to do is balance that information, and present a factually supported view — fair, open and accurate, without bias — based on accurate records and statements from real files … and these real files are certified documents, notarized documents, and the like.
It’s real, it’s accurate, and I present an unvarnished look at this to the public — the readers of this blog.
