ghostwritten for her pimping the Errol Morris book that essentially claims that McGinniss is responsible for Jeffrey MacDonald's continued incarceration.
Here is how Joe responded to those allegations courtesy of CNN Justice:
MacDonald's appeals received renewed attention with the release this month of the book "A Wilderness of Error: The Trials of Jeffrey MacDonald." Written by Academy-Award-winning documentary filmmaker Errol Morris, the book paints MacDonald as a man wrongly convicted on the basis of incomplete and corrupted evidence, as well as prosecutorial misconduct.
"We've been sold a bill of goods about this case," said Morris. "It's as phony as a three-dollar bill."
Asked about the controversy, McGinniss was pragmatic in his response.
"It doesn't matter what I think of what Morris thinks," he said. "MacDonald was convicted by a jury in a court of law. He's not in prison because of me and he's not going to get out of prison because of Errol Morris."
McGinniss also tried to put the rest the notion that he was a passionate believer in MacDonald when he embarked on "Fatal Vision." He says he was embedded with the defense team because he was looking for a different angle.
"I thought it would be fascinating to write about the trial from the point of view of how the defense and defendant were experiencing it. I learned everything from the first time in court. I didn't have my mind made up."
McGinniss said what he heard in court was overwhelmingly convincing.
"There came a point in the trial when much to my dismay I started to feel this evidence is piling up and MacDonald isn't doing anything to dispute it. By the end it was still very confusing. I said to myself, 'I think this guy did it,' but he was so charismatic and likable and had such a strong personality. This was before I learned about the psychopathic personality."
Well I think that is a pretty clear. Even though McGinniss personally liked the defendant, the evidence against him was just too strong to refute, so in response Joe came to believe he was guilty.
That is what trials are designed to do. Prove their case with the evidence.
Did anybody else notice what or who Joe McGinniss did NOT bother to mention?
Yep the Lunatic from Lake Lucille herself!
Here she goes and has a vindictive diatribe written for her attacking Joe, and he did not even bother to mention her name once in this interview.
You know Joe once told me that he looked forward to the day that he never had to even think about Sarah Palin again. It looks like that day has arrived and he has already moved on.
Sadly for some of course, there will NEVER be any "moving on."
