Joe McGinniss’ ‘rogue’ take on Sarah Palin

A lawyer for Sarah Palin is threatening to sue over a new book about the former Alaskan governor and one-time Republican vice-presidential candidate.

Palin’s lawyer alleges The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin defamed the Palin family and contains a series of lies and rumours; maintaining that Joe McGinniss‘ new book contains “most of” the stories “amounted to the wishful fantasies of disturbed individuals.”

Shortly before the book hit shelves last week, Palin’s husband Todd, lashed out at McGinniss, saying he had been “relentlessly” stalking his family and filled the book with “lies, innuendo and smears.”

Joe McGinniss joined us from Toronto to talk about the book.
