Washington, Sept 28 (ANI): A day after Sarah Palin's attorney threatened to sue over an unfavorable biography, its publisher has announced that it is standing by the work and author Joe McGinniss.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Crown Publishers backed McGinniss and his recently published book, 'The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin'.
"We are confident that the reporting in 'The Rogue' is solid, reliable, and well-substantiated. We stand by our publication and our author," CBS News quoted Crown Publishers spokesman Stuart Applebaum as saying in an emailed statement.
Palin's attorney John Tiemessen, in a letter to Crown Publishing Group Monday, had claimed that the book defames the Palins and contains "lies and rumors".
He cited an email McGinniss reportedly sent a blogger in January seeking substantiation for several rumors that have surrounded Palin's family. (ANI)
