Understandable

It’s understandable, of course. The best cure for enmity is exposure. Writers go in to interview serial killers and come out feeling connected. And Bannon is nothing as bad as that. So how surprising is it that Wolff hung out with him a lot, started him as a human being and grew to like him. It would be great if he had some sort of an awareness of all this and especially of how this kind of exposure to different human beings could have benefited Bannon himself.

    So true — famous writers who have have been duped by killers into thinking they were innocent and who subsequently helped those killers get parole (and then commit new crimes) include William F. Buckley and Norman Mailer.
