Martin Eisenstadt: I Was Carl Cameron’s Source

>UPDATE: Aw, yes…Thanks tipsters: We knew that name rang a bell? Remember the name Martin Eisenstadt. As in that Martin Eisenstadft? Looks like the prankster is up to hoax-ing again, and it’s doubtful that he was, in fact, Cameron’s real source.

Remember Carl Cameron‘s report for Fox News, in which he revealed that Sarah Palin didn’t know that Africa was a continent? Well, his source is outing himself

    By now you’ve all heard the Fox News report last week that “unnamed” former McCain advisers leaked that Sarah Palin was confused about whether Africa was a continent, and which countries were in NAFTA. I was perfectly happy staying under the radar as an anonymous source for Fox News’ Carl Cameron, but now that Palin has accused her accusers of being “unprofessional…jerks…cowards…taking things out of context, and then tried to spread something on national news” and begun to cast doubt on the Fox News report, maybe she’s right to a certain extent. For those of us on the McCain campaign who thought that she acted like a rogue diva and lost John the election, maybe we DO have a responsibility to come out in public. But Sarah…careful what you ask for: some of us may have more to reveal.

    So yes, to be clear, last week I was the one who leaked those things to a producer at Fox News who works with Cameron. Carl and his producers are good guys, and I don’t want them to have to worry about protecting their sources (and going through the wringer ala Judith Miller or Matt Cooper) on something like this.

You can read the rest here. Martin Eisenstadt describes himself thusly:

    An expert on Near Eastern military and political affairs, Mr. Eisenstadt works alongside Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, offering advice and liaising with the Jewish community in particular.
