You know what? The media coverage IS really irritating. But it’s also necessary, albeit for very specific reasons. On a big, naive level, it’s about realizing that cheaters do win. You should already know that, though. On another level, this is really about books and the publishing industry. Memoirists embellish their narratives; to believe otherwise makes you a complete fucktard, especially when most authors say as much in their notes.
Plus, they blame Oprah.
