How are you feeling, Melissa? Covering child sexual abuse cases can never be easy, especially given the amount of time you've dedicated to this. Have you received much push back for your reporting from pro-Pell/pro-Catholic supporters and if so, how do you deal with that?

Thanks for your reply and for your time on this. I hope things ease up a little so you can get a full night's sleep!

And I'm glad to hear folks have been mostly supportive. I think the other ones... well, they're always going to be there with their fingers in their ears resisting anything that goes against their world view.

I think a lot of it stems from way that people like Pell - extremely powerful men - always tend to get off in the end, even if they may not in the beginning. So I feel like there's a bit of expectation that this'll just be yet another case of that.
