THE KIKO'S NEVER FAIL TO AMAZE!!!
(Tim's note: I have removed the guess at "Bernie's" last name made by the original commenter. However, the link on "comment" above will take you to the original comment.)
As per a post in Diana's blog by Bernie. Could this be Bernie ...?
As usual, there is so much here that challenges even the simplest intelligence. But let's try. Here's how my "evil scheme" unfolded.
I had seen the story in the U Matuna on May 18 and didn't think much of it. I didn't know much about Cardinal Tagle, and usually bishops and cardinals are always polite hosts. Plus, even if the story was fake it would not have surprised me, being already aware of how Kiko uses the media.
Here's an example. Of the 33 lay people appointed as members and consultors to the Pontifical Council of the Laity, guess how many stories Zenit did about each one. Ummm, ONE would be correct. And you would also be correct if you guessed which one, even though the NCW is only a medium sized organization amongst all those represented. But back to our story.
I am so used to Neo-spin that it hardly interests me, and given the total Neo control of the U Matuna, why should there be any surprise that the spin would be printed there? So I was not surprised and never even cared to investigate the story.
However, on May 31 someone asked me about the date of the event. I don't keep copies of the U Matuna so I went to the website and couldn't find the story. I searched every possible way. All the other stories were there, but not that one. I then went to Google and typed in the names Tagle and Arguello and assorted variations. Nothing about a meeting in the Philippines came up...IN ALL OF GOOGLE! So I figured it was typical Neo tricks and went to bed.
The next day someone from Manila who had gotten wind of the story called me and let me know that Cardinal Tagle in fact had not invited anyone to the event and that he was upset about his name being used. The Cardinal had first gone to the rector of the RMS seminary in the Philippines to see if the story had originated there. When the rector confirmed that it did not, the Cardinal was left to believe that since the story had only been printed in Guam that the story had also originated in Guam. He then wrote the letter of correction to Jennifer Dulla.
I found this all very typical but figured if I was going to do a story on it I needed a copy of the letter, so I sent a request to my contact. This was about June 4. But let's stop here since "Bernie" accuses me of withholding information for the purposes of perpetrating an "evil scheme".
The Caridnal's letter was dated May 29. And who was it addressed to? Jennifer Dulla. And who was it copied to? Tony Diaz and Sister Marian. So WHO had the information as of May 29. In fact we know they had a copy because that explains why the story was scrubbed when I was looking for it on May 31 (which is when I posted the story DELETE).
And because of the seriousness of the letter and who sent it, it would have been an absolute dereliction of duty to not notify the chancery of the letter immediately. So unless you want to label Jennifer, Tony, and Sister Marian "derelict", we have to assume that at least one of them notified the chancery immediately. So WHO had the letter? The U Matuna staff and the Chancery. And who is the Chancery? Archbishop Apuron, Msgr. David C. Quitugua, and Fr. Adrian Cristobal.
And WHO DID NOT HAVE THE LETTER? Wait for it....TIM ROHR.
When my contact eventually procured a copy of the letter and sent it to me, he also let me know that I was NOT to post the letter on my blog unless the U Matuna did not print it. And I was told that the instruction came directly from Cardinal Tagle.
So I obeyed the Cardinal and waited to see if the U Matuna would print the Cardinal's letter. I also wanted to give the Archbishop the opportunity to do the right thing. It was his duty to set the record straight. It was his newspaper that misused the name of the Ordinary of another diocese. It was his decision not to correct the record himself and take responsibility for it. And it was with his sanction that the whole affair was organized under false pretenses.
So, like the episode I recently posted about the lie we were supposed to tell on KOLG, I WAITED for the Archbishop to do the right thing. And like with the KOLG cover up, he did not. And neither did the U Matuna.
The reason I waited till the evening of Friday June 6 was because I do not have access to the U Matuna before anyone else. I had to wait until it was released. And not seeing the Cardinal's letter and only the pathetic "it's nobody's fault - we all make mistakes Erratum", I posted the letter.
Diana and her sad little friends have tried to pass this off as some minor printing error, noting that the PDN will sometimes print similarly worded corrections. But there is NO DENYING that Jennifer Dulla herself knew the truth on May 29 and no attempt was made to communicate that truth to the communities (otherwise Diana would have known). There is NO DENYING that the ruse had begun as early as April and those who had originated the ruse did nothing, even after getting the Cardinal's letter. There is NO DENYING that the Archbishop himself knew all of this was a lie and did nothing and is still doing NOTHING.
Oh, but that evil Tim Rohr!
And these are the people that are to bring a "renewal of the whole Catholic Church"???
