Daniel Giersch, Kelly Rutherford’s former spouse who has sole legal custody of their children will certainly be one of our Fathers of the Year for 2015. He is ending the year by early media reports that he is suing Vanity Fair over “untrue and defamatory assertions” in the November 2015 issue.
Finally, a father has stepping up in an attempt to make the media accountable for stories in divorce and family abduction cases involving young children. The media has rarely been sensitive to a father and his children that have been targeted by a custodial-embattled protective mom like Kelly Rutherford that will sling every allegation (even false or deceptive ones). And the media, in the Rutherford Case having been accused of “Kelly-Heavy Spin” against her former spouse in our opinion practiced spoon-fed journalism in printing just about everything from the Rutherford PR Team. With the Rutherford custody order posted online, at times, you had to wonder if the reporter for Vanity Fair or some of the other Media Reporters actually read it.
So if the early media reports are correct, in 2016 Daniel Giersch will attempt to make reporter Sheila Weller and her Editors and Vanity Fair accountable for their actions. That is a good thing for not only the Fathers in these cases but for both parents and most importantly the children.
