You know that George has often professed his dislike of “the media”. What you don’t know, is that he doesn’t mind the media really. In fact, in his latest deal with Harper Collins, George has almost certainly had to:
- Put his hatred of Rupert Murdoch behind him (George’s publisher is a Murdoch company)
- Agree to have his book serialised in the press, where they will misrepresent everything he’s written
- Agree to do the rounds of chat shows, do book signings etc.
It’s unlikely that anyone would agree to hand over millions of dollars for a book, without requiring that the author does absolutely everything possible to promote it. Good times!
