Bernard Madoff’s remaining son is about to hit the media with his book “Truth and Consequences’ while the wife of the deceased son has already published hers – “The End of Normal”. The latter blitzed Good Morning America and 20/20 while the son has pulled off 60 Minutes this coming Sunday, accompanied by his, until now, silent mother Ruth.
Three years after Bernie’s Big Reveal, Ruth will be the big differentiator. She generates the most skepticism and it’s her version of what happened over those years that bears closest scrutiny.
Her son might have been better off keeping his public distance.
The PR Verdict: “B Plus” for the remaining Madoff son. Good timing to coincide with his sister in law’s publication as both versions will say more or less the same thing. Adding Ruth in the mix is perilous.
