For Shame

I was embarassed when I came home yesterday and found that Oprah had royally bitch slapped James Frey. On her show yesterday afternoon, she put him in front of the firing squad. I like Oprah for a lot of reasons, but her actions on this were pathetic. Frey's gone through enough, but you feel that since he somehow wronged you, then need to publicly embarass him further.

Furthermore, you were right the first time, when you said that the book was still inherently true. Stick to that and let's not further the "I was wronged so I need to wrong this person back" philosophy that is so prevalent on our society. Nothing is more pathetic than making yourself feel better at someone else's expense.
