Newsweek reports that Jeff Gannon is considering suing liberal bloggers, among others, for a “political assassination” that drove him from his job as a reporter for a conservative news outfit called Talon News.

From Newsweek (Michael Isikoff and Holly Bailey):

“Gannon, whose real name is James Guckert, singled out Media Matters-a “well-funded” liberal group headed by longtime “attack dog” David Brock. (“Everything we wrote about him came from the public record,” Brock replied.)

…When President Bush called on him at a press conference last month-during which he asked a question with false info about Sen. Harry Reid-”nobody was more surprised than myself,” said Gannon.

Steve Rubel is a PR strategist with nearly 16 years of public relations, marketing, journalism and communications experience. He currently serves as a Senior Vice President with Edelman, the largest independent global PR firm.

He authors the Micro Persuasion weblog, which tracks how blogs and participatory journalism are changing the public relations practice.
