AA:  Gore Vidal writes literature, does he not?

PAS: A long time ago he did. Now he's a propagandist.

AA: A propagandist for whom?

PAS: Himself. In the first 14 seconds of the movie "The Education of Gore Vidal" Bryant Gumbel is interviewing Vidal and says "Of yourself you have written, that you are at heart {quote} a propagandist, a tremendous hater, a tiresome nag" to which Vidal nods in agreement.
