Oprah kicks James Frey in the nads..on national TV.

James Frey wrote a book called "A Million Little Pieces" which chronicled his addiction to drugs and his attempts to get clean. He called it a "memoir"..usually that means its truthful and accurate. This one wasn't. Oprah jumped squarely in ol James' shit yesterday and called him a liar. She devoted a whole show to this guy..because she was one of those that didn't believe the Smoking Gun's story about how all the interesting stuff in the book was a crock. Oprah is not a show I watch on a regular basis..but when I saw he was going to be on..I tuned in.

It was worth it to watch him and his editor from Doubleday squirm. They made a ton of money off this book which was taunted as a "true life story". Nothing could be farther from the truth.

If you missed the show..the NY Times has a write up about it here. Oprah's only reason for having this show was that she looks like a fool now. She was warned that the book was too good to be true. She helped Frey and his publishers make millions off this book by making it one of her"book of the month" additions. She called into Larry Kings show to defend Frey after the Smoking Gun story broke.

Hey, we all get duped on occasion..just look at the reasons we attacked Iraq.

Two words that Oprah should have known:

Angela's Ashes.

But at least a bunch of rich people got richer while America was distracted from the dying children, right?

Right?

Vae victus, vae Libertas...
