Pulitzer Prize Winner James B. Stewart: An Epidemic Of Perjury


tangled-webs.jpgAuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary presents Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart discussing his latest book, Tangled Webs: how false statements are undermining America: from Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff, on Thursday, April 28, at 7 p.m., in the Cole Auditorium. Stewart will be joined by former Greenwich Superintendent of Schools and Senior Vice President of Scholastic, Inc. Ernie Fleishman as moderator.

Tangled Webs reveals in vivid detail the consequences of the perjury epidemic that has swept our country, undermining the very foundation of our courts.

With many prosecutors, investigators, and participants speaking for the first time, Tangled Webs goes behind the scene of the trials of media and homemaking entrepreneur Martha Stewart; top White House political adviser Lewis "Scooter" Libby; home-run king Barry Bonds; and Wall Street money manager Bernard Madoff. Stewart is the author of Heart of a Soldier, the bestselling Blind Eye and Blood Sport, and the blockbuster Den of Thieves.

A former Page One editor at The Wall Street Journal, Stewart won a Pulitzer Prize in 1988 for his reporting on the stock market crash and insider trading. He is a regular contributor to SmartMoney and The New Yorker. AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary, our ongoing author series, is free and open to the public. Diane's Books will provide copies of the book, which will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

Censorship is alive and well at "The Book Bench," The New Yorker, where James Stewart is a staff writer. It is shocking that my comments on James Stewart were deleted by The New Yorker. Is this America with First Amendment free speech? The deletion of my comments was appalling censorship by the New Yorker. Apparently­, they didn't like that I called James Stewart a lying propagandi­st and that his vendetta of lies on Martha Stewart evidences he lives a parasitic existence abusing and misusing his First Amendment rights.

I love Martha as much as the next guy, but Mr. Stewart's sources *are* a matter of public record.
