Here’s a snapshot of the latest hallucination in the head of Sarah Palin’s creepy stalker former neighbor guy Joe McGinniss:


Instead of admitting that his book that is bombing in sales because he’s been exposed as a journalistic hoaxer (worse yet, he exposed himself), McGinniss is trying to get everybody to believe that media outlets are cancelling scheduled interviews with him because they’re trying to, in essence, protect Palin:

Terry Gross [of NPR's Fresh Air] has declined to have me on her show. As have all other NPR shows. My fifteen seconds as part of a report on All Things Considered is all I get from NPR. I’m told they are scared of losing more federal funding if right wing Congresspeople complain that they are “promoting” my book.

FYI, both Morning Joe and Keith Olbermann had me booked for last week, but canceled when they saw which way the wind was blowing.

I’d like people to know that about Olbermann. First, he attacked my book on Bill Maher without having read it–then, when the publicity director of Crown Publishing said to his producer that she hoped he would read it before interviewing me on his own show, he canceled me.

Rachel Maddow also refused to have me on.

Maddow, Olbermann and NPR are protecting Sarah Palin? If McGinniss’s shark jump hadn’t yet completely cleared the dorsal fin, that whopper put enough air under him to make a safe landing on the other side.

More specifically, McGinniss is saying that Olbermann, NPR and the rest are refusing to let him promote his “expose” because the book proves they failed to properly vet Palin before the 2008 election (because of all that, uh, right wing mainstream media bias or something). In other words, Maddow, Olbermann, NPR, et al are protecting themselves, and ergo Palin.

The lefty media didn’t look deep enough into the background of Sarah Palin? The same MSM that recruited an army of volunteers to sift through her emails?

Come on, Joe… everybody knows that’s because in 2008 the MSM was way too busy digging into Obama’s past. Give ‘em a break!

    How ironic – I was watching a rerun of Law and Order this weeked where a "gossip mag" reporter was murdered and the defense put forth an argument about freedom of the press to prop up the "journalist". They put a "professor of journalism" on the stand to explain how news reports and stories are to be sourced by a "journalist". According to the prof – two separate and independent, CONFIRMED, sources are to be used and then run by the editor. Now that is from a liberal show, written and produced by liberals. Seems ole' Joe didn't do any home work and in fact knew that nothing he smeared Palin with was true according to Breitbart (who did his home work). The liberal MSM gave him some face time last week and when it came out that much of this book is just lies and smears – the left decided it couldn't be associated with DIRECT character assasination. They prefer their own tried and true smearing of hit and run journalism.

    It's not like he could claim racism though when I first heard this story, I thought he might have tried.

    I guess he and Dan Rather can be the charter members of the "Oh, woe is me for being ostracized for telling lies that should be true" Club.

    Just like the broken clock that is right twice a day, the msm has scored one. 12 hours to go to get another one right !

    Oh JOE McGuinness! We thought you meant JIM McGuinness!

    Nobody cares about soccer.

    I was wondering how his book was doing. I forgot about Levi writing one. Thanks for the link.

    This particular "nobody" can`t stand soccer. Rugby is interesting ONLY in watching them try to bounce a football. Both are too much about whining and brawling.

    I'm stunned; I just can't quite grasp the notion that Olbermann, Maddow and NPR between them possess even a grain of common sense. We must have gone through a space/time warp over the weekend and wound up in a weird. alternate universe.

    That fact alone is a dead giveaway at just how far removed Joe McGinniss is from any kind of reality.

    McGinniss probably as surprised as anybody that some on the left aren't just lapping up his BS.

    Soccer is just "river dance" with a ball.
