Wow, what a compliment..I think.
Sara Nelson, the new Big Deal at Publishers Weekly, aka the bible of publishing, talks about that uttter and complete charlatan Kevin Trudeau in her latest PW column ( 9.5.2005 issue) She bemoans the lack of fact checking in books, and the headline is "Snake Oil Crisis".
Well knock me over with a feather but if you scroll down this blog, what to your wondering eye will appear but Miss Snark saying pretty much the same thing including the phrase "snake oil" in two posts in early July: "This Guy Gives Snake Oil Salesmen a Bad Name" and "Telling Lies for Fun and Profit" both on July 5 I think.
Sara of course forgets to mention she reads this blog daily.. I'm sure it's just an oversight and her minions will arrive momentarily bearing gifts of mea culpa...but it's damn nice to see that what we've been yammering about here in the blogosphere is finally getting some serious attention from people who are in a position to be heard by a lot of folks.
I'm not sure if it will actually lead to anything, but at least it's something in PW you can photocopy and go tape on the shelves at BN where they actually sell that horseshit bound like a book.
