Thank You, Oprah

I am gratified that in response to my earlier post, the Grand Goddess of Syndication, Oprah, followed my lead and gave James Frey a good old fashioned ass-whoopin'. It was the modern day equivalent of the stocks, and by the end, poor Frey loked as if he was ready for another root canal.

Only goes to show...politicians can lie, but don't you dare lie to Oprah!

Frey deserved the ass whoopin'. I don't think the publishers deserved to be made out as culpable bad guys. Yeah, they share some responsibility but readers are not so stupid that we don't know that "memoir" is somebody's "interpretation" of truth.
