List, All -

If I might take a moment to answer another point about the
veracity of material published and the publishing houses take in

This from Stolen Valor, in discussing a book by Mark Lane about
American atrocities in Vietnam. Neil Sheehan, writing for the
New York Times Book Review, said, "An editor at Simon &
Schuster... asked whether they compared the soldiers' tales to
their military records, equated the idea of searching the
military records with taking a radical medical theory to the
American Medical Association. They'd just say it was wrong...
the editor admitted... that the book was published as an anti-
war protest." (Neil Sheehan, Review, Conversations With
Americans, the New York Times Book Review, December 27, 1970,
p. 5)

In other words, the political agendas of publishers sometimes
get in the way of the truth. They don't vet the books, and in
this case, didn't care if the information was true or not as
long as it fit into their political views. They had no stake in
the veracity of what they published as long as it was what they
wanted to believe.
