Is Clare a fabricated bogan?

By now you have seen Clare's articulate account of the shooting in Kings Cross but I am a little cynical.



5 reasons why Clare may not be a bogan:

1) She has employed UNO PR -Adam Abrams Link

2) UNO PR falls under the umbrella and at the same address as The Projects

3) The Projects is a specialist agency targeting young adults Link

4) The Projects is located 6min from the shooting in Paddington (same as PR firm)

5) Is that Clare below on the Project site Link
















6) Why does 6 beers feature so prominently in the clips on different camera angles

I do suspect a call to ninemsn to determine the source of the video and a call to the Projects would establish help establish some truth.


Please feel free to comment.

Is she related to the Ms Shelley Werbeloff at this Channel Nine function?

Maybe not a conspiracy, maybe just a dumb bogan girl who was drunk. Anyway, this is Australia, and we have never been known for our political correctness.

I am so sick of people mistakenly referring to people of Non-Italian/Greek origin as "wogs" tarring all ethnics with mediterranean features with the same brush.

I have no doubt that the shooter and victim in this case were Lebanese and hence in my view were incorrectly identified by Clare as "Wogs" when in fact they should have been referred to as "Lebs" or "Arabs".

This is not just semantics. It is an important point.

As a non-verbal communication expert, I can say that her patterns point towards construction of the story, rather than recall of the incident. Although it isn't 100% conclusive without setting a definitive baseline to test against, I'd say it is a better than 75% chance she has fabricated the story (or version) given her non-verbal cues are not congruent with her words and the context. In a nutshell, it looks fishy!

DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT 9/11 WAS A GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY AND THAT PORT ARTHUR WAS DONE BY THE GOVERNMENT!?!!?!?

Your theory is too far fetched for my liking. You are claiming at 3am a PR firm took advantage of a shooting? That they just happened to have clare in the vicinity .. like just in case? Get real!

This is real life, these are the streets, and Clare is just part of it. Take a video of a situation & people will read into it that you have a disturbed relationship with your neighbours dog.

Contrary to some people's suggestions, there is NOTHING racist about what she said, it's just how she was capable of describing the situation at hand. All sorts make the world go 'round, so could we be asking too much of people? Remembering that approx. 80% of society is made up of the 'average' Joe.

VERY VERY Entertaining piece of footage to the the least, BUT it just shows how people have nothing better to do than to amuse themselves with such an event.

This has got NOTHING to do with conspiracy theories.

If the PR company is just around the corner from the shooting, and she was at the scene, is it more likely that she was just out drinking in the area?

Many people drink near work, it just so happens that her work is near the seediest part f Sydney where people get shot.

I don't know her or work for the company...just looks like you're clutching at straws trying to link the advert to a shooting incident.

I agree it is a TOTAL STUNT 1)... she's obviously sober, 19yr old bogans are smashed at 3am, 2)...She said 'wog' how 'old school' if she was genuine she would have said 'leb' ooops! you can't print this now! see what I mean, that's why she said 'wog' 3) the beer ad placement, good on them, they had us all fooled ...for a short period of time...in the meantime we all got a laugh.

First impressions were that Clare was refreshingly real, living the hype of the moment.Yet to be convinced otherwise. I did not notice any beer adds in the background and if you did you should watch more Friday night Footy which is what I am going to do right now!@ GO CLARE

I think your wrong with the pic, nothing like her....

I've just read up on ninemsn's response to your blog, and even before reading it, I honestly think its mere coincidence that you've come up with these speculations.

One scenario: It could be she was simply having a night out after work who happened to be there at that particular time when it all went down ?

She sounds pretty bogan according to the video, but she definitely does not possess the skills of an actress.

Point being..there isn't one to your blog.

Hey, don't give up your day job will ya, eh ?

Regards,

blogosphere wins again..

congratulations my friend.. we need more people like you giving the media hell when we smell a rat.

checking the facts and doing the research was the key to tearing the australian media a new asshole.

This is something i have been telling people for years.. 5 minutes of checking facts can embarrass the media into smartening up its act and not treating us like fools that they think we are.

From a fellow blogger dedicated to exposing this stupidity,

Well done Sir..

Just to reiterate I was deliberately ambiguous in my cynicism as I have no access to Clare, PR company involved or TED 6 beers.

Tooheys Extra Dry 6 beers of separation on the other hand is a great campaign and I have been spruiking this for weeks. http://www.6beersofseparation.com.au

I look forward to Media Watch (ABC) coverage as I doubt that Today Tonight will cover the issues around racism and ethical journalism which far outweigh the marketing discussion happening here.

Why do people keep calling her Clare the bogan?

Bogans don't say "pardon" and "you're welcome".

She's more like a North Shore attention seeking wannabe glam girl.
