    Dude, you already opened a thread for the purpose of whitewashing Strobel's backstory. Go ignore inconvenient facts there.

    Gee. That makes it seem like Strobel really is interested in honest journalism.
    Or, more likely, Strobel is interested in avoiding being sued for liable by Craig Bloomberg so let Bloomberg approve the 'quotes' from their interview he put in his book. And Bloomberg apparently did correct those 'quotes'. It is pretty much standard practice for any author. The other distortions and misinformation in the book, not quoting what others said, were apparently not open for Bloomberg's correction.

    in the end [Bloomberg] decided to correct only the worst problems
    I wonder what the lesser problems were that Blomberg decided to not correct.
