pure as the driven (yellow) snow

It should be noted that Harper Collins Canada has clean hands, and that booksellers up here are happy to make the distinction, but this is very likely the most odious thing I've ever seen in the book trade. Regan Publishing is distributed by Harper Collins in the U.S, and has recently published books by such luminaries as former New Jersey governor James McGreevey and porn star Jenna Jameson.
As is noted in the Washington Post, it helps and is almost fun in a sick way, to follow the skeezy bouncing ball on this.
"In one of those incredible coincidences that make covering the TV industry so fulfilling, the book is being published under the Regan imprint, headed by Judith Regan, who will conduct the interview with O.J. on Fox. And her publishing outfit, ReganBooks, is a division of HarperCollins, which is owned by News Corp. -- which also owns Fox!"
That would be the Fox that relentlessly shills for the family values party that just got shellacked in the recent U.S midterm elections.
