Talk of Dodd’s book deal may have been premature. Reports at the Everyday Republican, Hartford Courant and CT News Junkie indicate nothing is set in stone. Hopefully someone at Crown publishing will see how ridiculous the entire premise is. From NBC Connecticut:
The publishing company, Crown, which is an imprint of Random House issued this “clarification” by e-mail Friday:Publishers Weekly, through information prematurely sent by the publisher, announced a book deal between Crown Publishers and Senator Christopher Dodd on the Senator’s role during the financial crisis last fall.Crown Publishers would like to clarify that in fact, Senator Dodd and Crown do not yet have a signed agreement, and that the actual content of proposed book will chronicle how Congress and the Bush Administration responded to the financial meltdown.
