In Interviews, Author Doesn't Credit Reporters Who Broke Fast and Furious (Pavlich Responds)
A Breitbart review of Katie Pavlich's book on Fast and Furious heaps more injustice on the mounds already piling up around the ATF gunwalking program.
Kudos to 23-year old Katie for capitalizing on the hard work of three guys who not only have been on this since day one but who actually broke the story in late December of 2010.
No hard feelings and who cares who actually gets the credit if in the end there's justice for the murdered souls of the Obama administration's number one scandal. I'm sure Mike Vanderboegh, Dave Workman and David Codrea, being the three exceptional investigative journalists they are would agree.
But there's something smarmy about Pavlich's latest Fox interviews. She didn't even mention the information which she compiled was due to the heavy lifting of others. Not to acknowledge that in each and every interview says a lot about Ms. Pavlich.
Meanwhile, David Codrea of the Examiner gives us the latest update on exclusive documents received by Mike Vanderboegh. Talk about dedicated Patriots. These trench warriors may not be one of the top 5 "hottest" conservative journalists but their dedication to their country in digging for the truth of the gunwalking murders can't be matched.
From the Examiner:
I haven't read Katie's book so I don't know if she's given these unsung heroes their due in print. I know it probably doesn't matter to them, that's how heroes and real freedom fighters are. They work quietly while others get the glory. After a 16-month congressional investigation yielding no contempt or criminal charges, the first journalists on the case know Gunwalker is not even out of the prologue stage.
I spoke with Mike V last summer.
After I hung up the phone it dawned on me he was a fearless, selfless American who was not only committed to seeing mass murderers brought to justice but who also didn't give a care if anybody knew his name.
Still, it would have been nice if Pavlich had given credit where credit was due.

Katie Pavlich responds:
This is in response to Catharine Evans' story in today's American Thinker. I do in fact give Mike Vanderboegh and David Codrea extensive credit in the book for their efforts and also gave them credit for breaking the story before anyone else in a speech yesterday. I am aware Catharine admitted she hadn't yet read the book, but regardless, see pages 69-70, 73-74 and 193. Not only do I give them their due credit, I also cite theirwork throughout the book.
As Catharine mentions, "No hard feelings and who cares who actually gets the credit if in the end there's justice for the murdered souls of the Obama administration's number one scandal." In the television world, the most important thing to do in a short period of time is to get the main points across about this lethal scandal, hence the reason I gave both Codrea and Vanderboegh credit in the book.
I would also like to add that I greatly appreciate and respect their work.
