What a show we have lined up for Sunday evening.

In the 9pm EST hour, we are excited to announce that we will have with us Andrew Goldberg, the Managing Editor of the fabulous web site The Smoking Gun.

What a week for The Smoking Gun, having debunked author James Frey and his million little lies. Without a doubt, this is the most talked about story in America this week. What a site to see Oprah eat a big slice of humble pie. Here is the post that started it all,

The Man Who Conned Oprah
“Book Club” author’s best selling non-fiction memoir filled with fabrications, falsehoods, other fakery, TSG probe finds

Frey appears to have fictionalized his past to propel and sweeten the book’s already melodramatic narrative and help convince readers of his malevolence. “I was a bad guy,” Frey told Winfrey. “If I was gonna write a book that was true, and I was gonna write a book that was honest, then I was gonna have to write about myself in very, very negative ways.” That is repeatedly apparent in his memoir, which announces, “I am an Alcoholic and I am a drug Addict and I am a Criminal.” It is an incantation he repeats eight times in the book, always making sure to capitalize the ‘c’ in Criminal.

But he has demonstrably fabricated key parts of the book, which could–and probably should–cause a discerning reader (and Winfrey has ushered millions of them Frey’s way) to wonder what is true in “A Million Little Pieces” and its sequel, “My Friend Leonard.”

When TSG confronted him Friday (1/6) afternoon with our findings, Frey refused to address the significant conflicts we discovered between his published accounts and those contained in various police reports. When we suggested that he might owe millions of readers and Winfrey fans an explanation for these discrepancies, Frey, now a publishing powerhouse, replied, “There’s nothing at this point can come out of this conversation that, that is good for me.”

Well, that is certainly one thing that James Frey has said that is 100% true!!

Find out right from The Smoking Gun how they discovered Frey’s web of lies and what it has been like to them since this story blew up into a national phenomenon. If you would like to watch Frey squirm on Oprah, click here.

In the 8pm est hour we will discuss a controversial bill that is before the Massachusetts state legislature, H1641, THE MASSACHUSETTS HEALTH CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS. The bill advocates raising health curriculum to the level of math and science and promotes “age appropriate” sexual education beginning on pre-kindergarden classes. Read the bill for yourself. State Representative Ted Speliotis will be our guest in studio. We will also hear from David Parker, the Lexington father who has become a nationally recognized speaker on parental rights issues.
