I am offering an open invitation to any bona fide mainstream reporter from Australia who would like to report on the truth of Fijian Village Homestays through FijiBure.

Knight's claims about items being stolen at the village were later retracted by her in a letter of apology written to the hosts at Matacawalevu. All photographs on the have been taken on location in the villages by me personally and do not misrepresent the experience. All the while the cameras and audio rolled capturing each word - ready for slicing and editing by Today Tonight - and, believe me, after seeing what went to air they did a good job. The invitation was never taken up - never let the truth get in the way of a good story, that's pocket book journalism at its best - that's classic Today Tonight reporting. It does not need to be as the villages fall directly under the governance of Fijian Affairs.
Yahoo is part of Oath. They reported Skase had roadblocks set up to deter reporters and cameramen.
