Skip to comments.Michael Schiavo to Tell His Side of the Story in Book
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.
Does anyone still have a Terri Schindler ping list?
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.
I already know his side .. HE KILLED HIS WIFE!
And .. NO! I will not be lining his pockets by buying his book.
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.
"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. "
Book title: "When is that b*tch gonna die?"
(his quote, not mine http://www.etherzone.com/2005/stan032105.shtml)
I read Mark Fuhrman's book, "Silent Witness."
I consider Michael Schiavo & O J blood brothers......
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.
In other words now he wants to make money off his wife's death.
Why does this not surprise me?????
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
Sept. 11, 2005
The Washington Post
"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,"
More profit in this for Mr. Schiavo. When does the movie come out?
It didn't take long, did it?
Next up: Hollywood...
But the proceeds from this book just.....might....change....that.
Here's hoping that she did die broke and that this book sells,say,1000 copies.
There were several FReepers on the Terri Threads who predicted this as likely. Just one more indecency perpetrated on the memory of Terri.
Has he officially married common-law wife #2 yet?
Not surprised in the least that he's trying to make money off his wife's death, his actions betrayed him as a snake from day one.
In other words now he wants to make money off his wife's death.
Good catch. That is exactly what I was thinking. Couldn't tell the story when Terri was alive. No, there is a blood money to be made. What a POS
I think that a better way to word it is "this monster that somehow learned to walk upright"
It wasn't a story until his in-laws and their supporters made it one. Much like Sheehan?
I am certain that his book will rank right up there with Hillary's in terms of HONESTY.
No surprise there, he puts the word "truth" in the title. Like he was "husband" and as she lay there being dehydrated and starved to death it was "letting her go" and she was "beautiful" and on and on...
So, these guys are two pees in a pot, then?
As Terri's spouse, wasn't it legally Michael's decision to remove the feeding tube?
Wasn't it the Schindlers who brought the feds into the situation in the first place?
I hope that his book " starves" to death just like he STARVED his wife. NOTHING will ever make that wrong RIGHT no matter how hard he tries.! GOD will have the last word with Michael unless he repents.
Interesting questions. What's your position on the matter? How do you really feel?
teh Son of Sam law should apply here...
Your expression is priceless, but for some reason millions of misguided Americans seem to warm uniquely to this "monster in human form."
it was only a matter of time.
Remember that Michael's "band of liberal buddies" are REPUBLICANS, including Michael himself.
I guess he changed the title from "Die, B!tch! Die!
Yes, it would have been so much neater to allow MS to finish murdering his wife, without anyone objecting or knowing about it. I suppose you feel the same way about OJ -- why they fuss?
Apples and oranges, dear. The Schindlers were fighting to save their daughter from a horrible death. Shitty Sheehadi is profiting off her son's death, which was an honorable one. Shitty and MS have something in common, now that I think about it...no honor, no conscience.
Guess what : (
Too bad Terri will never have a chance to tell HER side of the story.
I wouldn't buy anything that might make one penny end up in the pocket of this scumbag.A book written by this filthy pig will be full of lies and half truths that cover up his despicable actions.
