Newt Gingrich's (First) Divorce: The Revisionist History

November 19, 2011
One-time history professor Newt Gingrich is ramping up a belated effort to revise some unpleasant history that's been written about him.

More than a quarter century after leftie magazine Mother Jones first published a devastating profile that, among other things, described the then-up-and-coming congressman discussing divorce with his first wife while she was in the hospital, the former Georgia congressman's suddenly surging campaign is pulling out all the stops to label the oft-repeated story "a vicious lie." Those are the words used on a new website the Gingrich campaign has launched to rebut attacks on him.

Journalists who mention the episode in stories about Gingrich get emails from the campaign demanding corrections. National Journal has been on the receiving end of a couple of those.
