A television station in San Francisco invites the authors of a new book that's highly critical of TV news, the blogosphere and the "menace of media speed" for a Jan. 3 interview. Then, in a speedy development that turns out to be menacing for the authors, the TV station cancels the invitation, claiming a sudden change in format. It was a lie. The station's news director admitted it in a note to the authors' publicist: "The format hasn't changed. We still do guests. But I am not all that interested in a book that is going to be critical of what we do as a business."
