“I can no longer stay silent,” says fired “60M” producer Mapes

Vanity Fair
“I must
answer the bloggers, the babblers and blabbers, and the true believers
who have called me everything from ‘feminazi’ to an ‘elitist liberal’
to an ‘idiot,’” writes Mary Mapes. “If I was an idiot, it was for believing in a free press that is able to do its job without fear or favor. …I didn’t know that the attack on our story was going to be as effective as a brilliantly run national political campaign, because that is what it was: a political
campaign.” This VF excerpt of Mapes’ new book is in PDF format.
