    The authors keep going on TV and being coy about where they got their information.

    Anything not in quotation marks is their approximation of what was said based on memories of the anonymous sources.

    REALLY credible as journalism.

    I can't believe the media is pushing this dreck like they are.

      The media has been pushing dreck ever since there's been a market for it. Scandalous tell-all books are nothing new - and made-up lies in such books are nothing new either.

      The Duke of Wellington's famous "Publish and be damned!" was in response to a threat from an alleged former mistress to Tell All in her forthcoming memoirs. And it wasn't a new tactic in his day.

      If it's
      Not your body
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      AND it's
      None of your damn business!
