From a tweat by Glenn Greenwald, someone with whom I don’t generally agree. The set-up:
This [book, "Fire and Fury" by Michael Wolff] is a juicy, fun detail that a lot of reporters were chasing — but no one wrote it bc every source w first-hand knowledge said it simply wasn’t true.
And the response
A gossip book filled with factually false claims – written by someone with a well-documented history of fabulism and recklessness – has been dominating the US news cycle for a full week.
