Palin punches back at ‘The Rogue’

Media

The book is filled with line after line of dirty rumors and now Sarah Palin is threatening its publisher with a lawsuit. A letter from Palin's family attorney was sent to Crown Publishing, an imprint of Random House, stating that Palin may sue for publishing Joe McGinniss's book "The Rogue," according to ABC News. The letter alleges Palin was defamed by the book, saying that Crown “knowingly publish[ed] false statements."

From ABC News:

Palin’s attorney continues, writing it is “malicious” for Crown to publish the book when they have proof McGinniss and Crown “were fully aware the statements in the book were false, intended to be false, and were intended to harm.”

“The final work that was published contains most of the stories that Mr. McGinniss complains were nothing more than ‘tawdry gossip’ that amounted to the wishful fantasies of disturbed individuals,” Tiemessen writes. “Since both your company, and the author, clearly knew the statements were false, admitted they had no basis in fact or reality, but decided to publish in order to harm Governor Palin’s family, you and Mr. McGinniss have defamed the Palins.”
