Smoking Out The Smoking Gun

As is well-known by now, it was an expose by The Smoking Gun that led to James Frey's downfall. Or was it? Moscow-based newspaper The eXile claims that its September 2005 editorial was the first to cast doubts on the veracity of A Million Little Pieces, and editor Mark Ames says that "there's no way the Smoking Gun did not see what the eXile did."

Smoking Gun founder Bill Bastone's response? "I don't know what the [bleep] he's talking about."
