James Frey on Larry King Tonight

By now, I assume you know about the scandal involving James Frey and the falsifications in A Million Little Pieces. Perhaps this is shallow of me, but another nail in his reputation, as far as I'm concerned, is Frey's decision to use the Larry King Show as the beachhead for his P.R. efforts.

If I were a disgraced person, Larry King would be my interviewer of choice, too, a guy who brags about not doing preparation. Even if King issues the occasional tough question, I'd be assured King wouldn't have done the research to challenge me with a followup. Still, it should be good television. Live, tonight, 9:00 E.S.T.
