Michael Schiavo to Tell His Side of the Story in Book
AP ^ | 9/18/05

Posted on 09/18/2005 1:25:48 PM PDT by Crackingham

Michael Schiavo is co-writing a book with author Michael Hirsh to tell his side of the end-of-life case that divided much of the country. Schiavo's wife Terri suffered a brain injury in 1990 that left her in what some doctors called a "persistent vegetative state." She died March 31 after a bitter court battle between her husband and her parents.

Hirsh expects the 280-page book, "Terri: the Truth," to be available just before the first anniversary of Terri's death. Dutton Publishing publicity manager Jean Anne Rose confirmed that the company is publishing the book in March.

Michael Schiavo's decision to remove a feeding tube that kept his brain-damaged wife alive alienated him from her parents, drew a Congressional intervention and even prompted criticism from President Bush.

Hirsh, 62, is a Vietnam veteran and a former Los Angeles television producer who has written three books about the military.

Interesting. I'm dying to know why he had her two cats killed and had her wedding rings melted down. I'm sure he'll have a good story ready!

Words fail me at the callousness of this monster in human form.

How nice of the AP to do some advertising for him. I thought the media did a pretty bang up job telling his side of the story all along. Unfortunately, Terri was too disabled to compete with Michael and his band of liberal buddies.

I looked at some earlier threads and it appears you have a Terri Schiavo ping list...?

You might want to ping the list.

You know, most honest people just keep their mouths shut when they've been unjustly villified, because they never think they need to justify their position to anyone, nor do they care to dwell on it.

Interesting choice in authors. See http://powerlineblog.com/archives/011642.php.

"The only thing worse than an MSM piece that's plainly devoid of analysis is an MSM piece that contains its illusion. A case in point is this shockingly bad article by Newsweek's Michael Hirsh that appeared in today's Washington Post. "

It's surprising the man can even function in his Persistent Homicidal State. Or has he moved from Florida?

I expect Michael Shiavo will write at least three or four words of this tome . . . and perhaps even spell one or two of them right.

Actually, he wants to make more money off his wife.

He always said he would never put out a book. Then again, a lot of nitwits believed a whole pack of lies put out by this scum ball.

Here is one of Michael HIrsh' recent articles:

9/11 -- and Counting.
Four Years In, No Clear Plan

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/09/AR2005090902473.html

Sept. 11, 2005
The Washington Post

excerpt:

"Moreover, an administration that had sought to reassert U.S. power now finds itself projecting weakness. An America that was at the top of its game internationally on Sept. 10, 2001 has squandered its prestige. Iraq is draining the most powerful Army in history, America's moral standing in the world is diminished, and our policies, according to the CIA's own analysis, may have only helped to foment the jihadi movement globally. We possess less leverage over the nuclear-minded states of Iran and North Korea.

Most disturbing of all, the man who once called himself a "war president" has not formulated a well-thought-out plan for winning this war, either in public or privately within his administration. In place of a strategy, Bush mainly repeats his vague pledge to spread democracy "with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world,"
