The Velvet Rope
Unleashed on November 20, 2009
Valerie Plame Wilson – a former CIA agent whose unmasking led to the conviction of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s top aide has lost an appeal to declassify parts of her memoir. The only winner in this case appears to be her publisher, Simon & Schuster – who will publish the selfsame Dick Cheney’s memoirs in 2011. Google and two author and publisher organizations have submitted a new version of a legal settlement that would allow Google to distribute millions of digital books online. And an author who rented a hip New York nightclub to host her book launch is suing the club for $1 billion – because it allegedly wouldn’t allow most of her guests to come in (because of the color of their skin, she says). All these and more on today’s WRITE REPORT with Donna Ballman.[audio:ld/ld_322.mp3]
