Journalists Speak Out
When the investigative website The Smoking Gun raised questions about the validity of James Frey's memoir A Million Little Pieces, many journalists wrote about the controversy. Headlines across the country read: "The Man Who Conned Oprah" and "A Million Little Lies." Oprah invited journalists Frank Rich and Richard Cohen to be on the show along with Poynter Institute fellow Roy Peter Clark. Joel Stein, Stanley Crouch and Maureen Dowd also had comments.
