Sranger than fiction

James Frey, the writer whose fraud was revealed by The Smoking Gun, has lost his publisher. Penguin Group (Uk-based Pearson) will not publish his next two books.   There is no sign that Random House (German-based Bertelsmann) regrets publishing his first book.

Scoundrel that he is, though, he still has a movie deal with Warner Bros. in the works. (Time Warner)   But then, they own CNN and we know their problems with credibility.
