The ugly fat lying cunt facing karma
University journalism lecturer and (alleged) journalist, Connie St. Louis, has seemingly had her postgraduate course at City University in London downgraded or axed, with her teaching hours apparently cut, Heat Street has established.
Last year, St. Louis accused Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sir Tim Hunt of making “sexist” remarks at a conference for women in South Korea.
While giving a toast at the conference, Hunt joked: “It’s strange that such a chauvinist monster like me has been asked to speak to women scientists. Let me tell you about my trouble with girls. Three things happen when they are in the lab: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticise them they cry. Perhaps we should make separate labs for boys and girls? Now, seriously, I’m impressed by the economic development of Korea. And women scientists played, without doubt an important role in it. Science needs women, and you should do science, despite all the obstacles, and despite monsters like me.”
St Louis was later found to have quoted Hunt selectively, but by falsely claiming his words were misogynist she triggered a worldwide debate and ultimately derailed his career. Among her many lies were that Hunt had gone ‘on and on’, when he joked for two minutes, that he sat down to a ‘deathly silence’ when there was applause and laughter, and that a lunch that finished normally five minutes later was ‘ruined’. St. Louis also lied to other journalists stating that Tim Hunt had refused to answer her questions during a later session he was not present at; she confused him with a Wall Street Journal reporter and never apologised for this lie.
Futhermore, St. Louis and her co-conspirators Ivan Oransky and Deborah Blum failed to report that the exact same people who had hosted the lunch invited Sir Tim Hunt to open the WCSJ that very night. Sir Tim’s persecutor Deborah Blum happily shared the stage with him the evening after the uneventful lunch, and the WCSJ’s head of PR was photographed clapping him enthusiastically.
St. Louis then attended a two hour reception with Sir Tim Hunt during which time she never put any of her false allegations to him.
The BBC apologised to Louise Mensch and to Mary Collins and Tim Hunt for putting the words of the Today Show’s presenter in Hunt’s mouth. They also admitted that their understanding of Connie St. Louis basic credibility had ‘evolved’ as the scandal of her gross misresporting grew.
Incorrect and misleading quotes weren’t the only problem for the university lecturer.
Now it appears St Louis’ misfired crusade against a pioneering scientist is coming back to haunt her.
City University in London, where she used to be the MA director in Science Journalism, appears to have dropped her course, according to a timetable seen by Heat Street – the only one in the university’s journalism department to apparently suffer this fate.
As a result she will have plenty more free time to play with: the university seems to have given her only one 2 hour-long class to teach every week for two months.
