Let's say this all together.
James Frey is gutter scum. We knew that already.
No, James Frey does what he has always done. Lie. Cheat. Beg. Threaten. All of it, exposed by Suzanne Mozes for New York. Read it. And vomit. But still...
... the real scum here? Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks and Harper Collins. Yes, I can hear you all go "wha?", but let's think about this. Neither party stopped and thought about what kind of a man James Frey is. Neither party gave a damn. Neither party has stepped forward and denounced these practices.
They are the arms merchants to Frey's murderer.
And if neither comes out and denounces what is happening publicly, one should seriously boycot all of their products.
