Gail Sheehy QuotesShowing all quotes
|Birth:||27th November, 1937|
Born to Harold Merritt and Lillian Rainey Henion. She attended the University of Vermont where she was a member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority and received a graduate degree in journalism from Columbia University. Her first husband was physician Albert Sheehy, whose surname she kept; they had one daughter. She married publisher Clay Felker in 1984; they adopted a daughter. Sheehy's 1992 article on Hillary Clinton created a stir by quoting the First Lady mentioning rumors of an affair between President George H. W. Bush and a woman named "Jennifer". Sheehy reported that Clinton complained that the media had made much about Gennifer Flowers's affair with Bill Clinton but didn't look into the Bush transgression. Clinton considered that portion of the interview off the record, but Sheehy disagreed. Her book Passages was a national bestseller. A plagiarism lawsuit was filed against Sheehy by Roger Gould, a psychiatrist at the University of California at Los Angeles, who accused her of stealing from his work. The suit was settled out of court, with Gould receiving $10,000 and 10% of Sheehy's royalties. The Art Science Research Laboratory, a New York-based group that examines news articles for factual accuracy, released a 65-page report based on an article Gail Sheehy published in The New York Observer on February 16, 2004, which was critical of the 9/11 Commission.
