The lady protesteth a lot

As someone who has written about Oprah, I've been following the James Frey contretemps, and particularly today's coverage, closely. It's a tough crowd. People don't like being lied to, and Oprah especially doesn't like being lied to. It's her platform and she invited the wrong guy to climb on it. That is her mistake, even if she would like to pass the responsibility to the publisher. Oprah has always gotten a lot of mileage -- meaning shows -- out of her mistakes. Look for more on this.
