Good riddance.

Probably the most unethical piece of human scumbaggery to ever exist in the world of journalism. And that’s sayin’ something.

As a prime example of his total lack of ethics, anyone recall the bit about his attempt to tie Sarah Palin’s father to some pedophile teacher at a school where they both worked? No connection whatsoever, but his documented attempt to utilize it as yet another subject to smear the Palin name told everything one needed to know about what a thorough and dishonest sleaze he was.

I'm sure Sarah will take the high road when it comes to this, but screw the bastard.

I did like GOING TO EXTREMES though, and learned a good survival trick from it.

Isn’t this the book Elaine was reading when they thought she was trying to take out Mr. Pitt?

Then there was the ‘Alive’ book Newman was reading in the Seinfeld “Butter Shave” episode where Kramer is in the hot tub and Newman throws in a stick of butter to stir it around.

I think his “oppinions” in FATAL VISION are BS. He figured he’d get more book sales and a TV movie deal if he “proved” Captain MacDonald guilty.
