Once upon a time, (June of 2013 to be exact) Earl de Blonville (who describes himself as ‘Australia’s preeminent Arctic Explorer’) wrote a glowing “endorsement” on LinkedIn about another self-described explorer, Englishman Ripley Davenport.
Two journalists from Denmark and I were working on an article about Davenport . We knew Davenport to be a fraud. This story begins with my email asking Earl how he came to write the endorsement.
