From a reporter at iFMagazine to an article in defamer.com – FINALLY, somebody sticks up for James Frey and says EXACTLY what I have been saying about the whole ridiculous thing. Here is a small clip for you from Bruce Willis –

“Look at what happened to James Frey in the last two weeks,” says

because his publisher chose to say that these were memoirs, it took it
out of being a work of fiction, a great work of fiction and very well
written to this guy having to go be sucker punched on OPRAH by one of
the most powerful women in television just to grind her own axe about
it. ‘Hey, Oprah. You had President Clinton on your show and if this
prick didn’t lie about a couple of things I’m going to set myself on
fire right now.’ James Frey is a writer, okay? He can write whatever he
wants. It’s fiction, and it’s just hard, it’s just shameful how he was
treated in some of these things. read more here…..
