Michael Joseph Gross responds to criticism of his Vanity Fair piece:

The worst stuff isn't even in there. I couldn't believe these stories either when I first heard them, and I started this story with a prejudice in her favor. I have a lot in common with this woman. I'm a small-town person, I'm a Christian, I think that a lot of her criticisms of the media actually have something to them. And I think she got a bum ride, but everybody close to her tells the same story. ... This is a person for whom there is no topic too small to lie about. She lies about everything.
