Oprah Winfrey–A Witness to the Importance of Truth!

There is an important lesson in the shock and disgust of Oprah Winfrey about the revelation that James Frey’s book A Million Little Pieces (Doubleday, 2003), a memoir of addiction and recovery and which she had previously endorsed, contains fabrications and lies. Even in our supposed postmodern world, where all is held to be relative, this incident is a good reminder that when it really comes down to it, truth-telling is held to be vital and lying worthy of censure.
