    [SNIP] My plan that Thursday had been to travel to Camp David to cover the G8 Summit that was convening just 15 miles from my Maryland home. But when I began reading Walker's account of his tangle with Kimberlin, I soon spotted the name of a Democrat campaign consultant, Neal Rauhauser, described as an "associate" of Kimberlin. This was clearly newsworthy, and raised the story above the level of a squabble between bloggers. Rauhauser is a self-described "hacker," and in 2010 was accused by Tea Party activists of organizing a campaign of online harassment known as "TwitterGate." This apparent connection...
  • Tom Hanks, Glenn Frey in 2004 racial shocker: ‘Blackface,’ jokes at fundraising auction [VIDEO]

    Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows Hollywood screen legend Tom Hanks and Eagles musician Glenn Frey at a 2004 fundraising auction, playfully interacting with a white man dressed as an African native, complete with blackface makeup and a giant Afro wig. Hanks most recently provided the narration for ”The Road We’ve Traveled,” a 17-minute-long campaign video meant to help President Barack Obama win re-election in November. The fundraiser, held March 13, 2004 at St. Matthew’s Parish School in Pacific Palisades, Calif., featured Hanks and Frey as co-emcees. Children of both men attended the school. The event’s theme, “Castaways,”...

    Donald N. Frey, the engineer who spearheaded the design and development of the Mustang, the spunky, stylish, affordably priced “pony car” that the Ford Motor Company rolled out in the mid-1960s in one of the most successful car introductions in automotive history, died March 5 in Evanston, Ill., where he lived. He was 86. /...../ Though much of the Mustang was borrowed from other Ford vehicles, including a Falcon chassis, the car developed an identity all its own for a younger generation in search of new looks and experiences. It was designed to appeal to both men and women, had...

    Does James Frey have embarrassing audiotapes of Oprah Winfrey? The upcoming paperback version of his best-selling novel, "Bright Shiny Morning," includes two passages omitted from the hard cover, which came out last year. The first passage is a triple X-rated story of an affair between a lawyer for the ACLU and the wife of a Republican senator who meet in a bar and proceed to have raunchy sex in bathrooms, alleys, seedy motels and the backseats of the cars. The sex scenes — deemed too racy for some readers — are included in the paperback. The second passage is more...

    Here's TWO Book Reviews. One is by Amber Frey of Scott Peterson fame. The other is by Mike Wallace of "60 Minutes Fame". One was okay. The other was a total indulgence of a dishonest has-been. It's Amber's book which is way better than blow-dried anchorman Wallace.

    A story about you and your siblings convincing your littlest sister to sit in a road covered with snow to be run over by a car can't be "true enough" or "essentially true" or "embellished." It either happened or it didn't. Iwas out of town during the David Sedaris performance at the DECC last week, but I wouldn't have gone anyway. I don't mean to sound egotistical, but I have far more interesting stories of my own. And unlike Sedaris' tales, all of mine are true. If you've spent more than five minutes with me you'll agree my life has...

    Last Thursday, publishing-industry veteran Nan Talese was excoriated on television by Oprah Winfrey for publishing James Frey's 2003 "A Million Little Pieces," a bestselling memoir about the author's struggle to overcome drug dependency that he has since admitted is partly fictitious. But on Friday morning, Ms. Talese walked into 22nd-floor offices in Midtown Manhattan to a standing ovation from her colleagues. Soon afterward, she received a call of support from Peter Olson, chief executive of Bertelsmann AG's Random House Inc. publishing arm. "I've gotten more than 500 emails over the last few days, and the overwhelming majority have been supportive,"...

    Today's Oprah Winfrey program featured her interviewing James Frey, author of "A Million Little Pieces." The book has come under fire for being much less than accurate. Greatly due to Ms. Winfrey's endorsement of the book, even after its inaccuracies and fictions had been detailed, "A Million Little Pieces" enjoyed incredible success. This morning Ms. Winfrey told Frey, "I really feel duped." Reuters reports: "In 19 years in television 'I've never been in this position before,' said Winfrey. . ." The talk show host was being disingenuous She's been duped before. Journalist Michael Fumento notes one example from 1987, when...

    CHICAGO - Oprah Winfrey challenged author James Frey over his disputed memoir, asking him on a live telecast of her show Thursday to explain why he "felt the need to lie." "It is difficult for me to talk to you because I really feel duped ... but more importantly I feel that you betrayed millions of readers," Winfrey said to Frey, who wrote the hugely popular "A Million Little Pieces." Frey's story of substance abuse and recovery became one of the best-selling books of 2005 after Winfrey named it to her book club last fall, with countless addicts citing it...

    Because she has led countless billions and billions of people to the promised land of books, because she preaches self-help and self-sufficiency and not least because she has shown that even a middle-aged person can keep weight off, I must tiptoe up to the amazing Oprah and merely whisper to her that in the case of James Frey, the liar whose memoir turns out to have a good deal of fiction alongside fact, she is not only wrong but deluded. What she needs is a session with Dr. Phil. Frey's memoir, "A Million Little Pieces," is about his recovery from...

    NEW YORK - Now that Oprah has spoken, and forgiven, don't count on any major changes in James Frey's "A Million Pieces" or in how publishers ensure the accuracy of memoirs. With the force of a Supreme Court ruling, Oprah Winfrey phoned in to "Larry King Live" this week, at the end of an hour-long interview with Frey, and reaffirmed her support for his memoir of addiction. She declared that the allegations that Frey had fabricated some parts _ including a three-month prison stint that apparently never happened _ were "much ado about nothing" and that the book should be...

    Oprah Winfrey broke her silence about James Frey's disputed memoir of addiction, "A Million Little Pieces," dismissing allegations of falsehoods as "much ado about nothing" and urging readers who have been inspired by the book to "Keep holding on." "What is relevant is that he was a drug addict … and stepped out of that history to be the man he is today and to take that message to save other people and allow them to save themselves," Winfrey said Wednesday night in a surprise phone call to CNN's Larry King, who was interviewing Frey on his live television program....

    Gloria Allred will do whatever it takes to get on any show she can to satisfy her ego. She can’t talk and make sense at the same time. She has to rattle on like a train going down the tracks backwards. This is why Gloria is our Idiot of The Week. Besides it’s Thanksgiving. What better Turkey for our Idiot of The Week. High Profile Attorney? Gloria Allred describes herself as a high profile attorney from Los Angeles. I’d guess if high profile means doing whatever it takes to get on as my television talk shows as possible then she’s...

    The former girlfriend of wife killer Scott Peterson backed out of an appearance on the daytime TV show The View because her lawyer could not join her. Amber Frey is making the television rounds to promote her book, Witness: For the Prosecution of Scott Peterson. Lawyer Gloria Allred has been at her side on Oprah Winfrey, Hannity and Colmes and the Today Show, but View producers said that Frey had to appear solo. Given that this is a very emotional and difficult time for Amber, she has requested that all media interviews be conducted with me because I have been...
