The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin

Joe McGinniss wanted to write a book about Sarah Palin so he moved to Wasila, Alaska. Right next door. A move that created a firestorm of controversy. From his base on the other side of a fence that kept getting higher. Joe McGinniss sought out friends, foes and those with long memories. From the petty to the political, the picture he paints of the former U.S. Republican Vice-Presidential candidate has her supporters crying foul and her detractors sharing gossip.

The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin

We started this segment with a clip from Sarah Palin speaking last year with Conservative U.S. radio host Glenn Beck. The former U.S. Vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor sounds upbeat -- but she was definitely unhappy that a man planning to write a book about her moved in right next door to her Alaska home. Not surprisingly, Fox News also found the motives of author Joe McGinniss a little suspect. We aired a clip.

Joe McGinniss's new book is now in bookstores and continues to generate controversy. Last week, lawyers for Sarah Palin sent a letter to Random House suggesting they may sue. The man at the center of all of this drama joined us in our Toronto studio.

Joe McGinniss is the author of The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin. We sent an invitation to Sarah Palin through her political action committee to respond to some of the allegations made by Joe McGinniss. That invitation is still open.
