Especially based on contemporary reporting that is almost certainly misleading:
“You haven’t gotten the whole story on Paula Deen and the N-word. So you probably have an inaccurate understanding of what’s going on. It is well to remember this dynamic, whenever we see damning ‘information’ about anyone…” — What you probably didn’t know about the Paula Deen dust-up, by J.E. Dyer
It seems Paula Deen may have been treated unjustly. I’m glad her cookbooks are selling well.
