This is how to say sorry

The Bomber who had been hired by a PR company to film people unhappy with Labtests was the same Bomber who subsequently blogged on the issue without declaring an interest.

Cactus Kate  and Whaleoil called him out.

He reacted with anger, writing that because he’d blogged against Labtests previously it was okay to continue doing so after doing the PR work without declaring that. However, he has now seen the light. He’s accepted what he did was wrong and has not only apologised he’s done it properly.

This needn’t be the end of his PR career – there’s a few MPs who could do with some lessons in saying sorry honestly and fulsomely.

    …do you mean “honestly and fully”? “Fulsome” is a beautifully descriptive words which is too often used incorrectly.

    Bomber doesn’t have a PR career. So hence the problem.

    His brand is anti-corporate, telling it straight and on alternative media.

    He was doing well in his apology until he claimed that he doesn’t actually believe in “half” the stuff he blogs.

    Which defeats the point in being honest doesn’t it?

    Lilacsigil – the OED defines fulsome as: cloying, excessive, disgusting by excess (of flattery, servility, exagerated afffection) which isn’t what I meant.

    CK – Honesty is like pregnancy, you either are or you’re not.

    The trouble with half honest is, as you say, how do we know which half it is? http://asianinvasion2006.blogspot.com/2009/09/repent-blogger.html

    No but it should be the end of his blogging career.
    And he hasn’t really apologised either: did he pay back all the money he was paid for the harassing sick people outside hospitalsIt’s despicable.
