As was her common tendency, Rita swooped down in the immediate wake of a death to ensure that public interest remained high, whilst fully exploiting the legal situation that the dead cannot be libelled.
The book was rated with five stars by the Daily Prophet. Prior to its release, Betty Braithwaite had visited Rita's home for an interview about the title, and Rita served her tea and a slice of pound cake.
It is probably because of this "warmth and softness" that Braithwaite's write-up was highly favourable and quite heavily biassed in favour of Skeeter. Contents Contents One of the pages of the book, featuring Gellert Grindelwald The book contained some controversial, though partially true, revelations about Dumbledore and his familyfor example, the story of covering up of the "sickness" of Dumbledore's sister Ariana.
It also talked about how Dumbledore's father was imprisoned in Azkaban for attacking three Mugglesand explored Dumbledore's relationship in his younger days with Gellert Grindelwaldwho would later become an immensely powerful Dark Wizardfor many second only to Voldemort, and would be defeated in by Dumbledore himself.

Rita had written Bathilda a very cheerful thank you note and had it sent to her, either just before, or at the time that the real Bathilda was killed by Voldemort, and she was taken over by his snake, Nagini.
From this, she and Harry Potter learned of Ariana's mysterious death and Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald.
