In all of our coverage of the Benghazi mess at 60 Minutes, which is still not coming completely clean about its October 27 report based on the lies of a former security employee, it became more and more apparent that the book he wrote was likely just as flawed.
Such was the case last week when Threshold, the publisher of The Embassy House by Dylan Davies, retracted the book.
But unlike 60 Minutes, it has not provided any more information on how it got into print or what, if any, reviews were done to check its accuracy.
With that in mind, I spoke to
veterans of the book publishing world who pretty much agreed that most
publishers do not fact-check and that leaves a big potential problem for
many books by non-authors like Davies, and other media outlets who base
stories on them.
