Skip to comments.Time Magazine admits Book Ghostwritten
Posted on 10/08/2009 7:21:45 AM PDT by opentalk
Time Magazine has blown the lid on a secret ghost writer for one of the most well known political figures of our day and that person is... Sarah Palin. That's right! Not President Obama but Sarah Palin whose book titled Going Rogue: An American Life is set for release soon. What evidence do they cite? Well the author doesn't cite any but does say who the ghost writer is:

So where is Time Magazine on the ghost writer for the years ago published book - Dreams from My Father, supposedly written by President Obama -- well, they are too busy digging up dirt on a yet to be released book by Sarah Palin.
I thought that was an open secret. Sarah wasn’t hiding this. There have been threads on this site on the collaborator which I assumed meant ghost writer.
Time Magazine trying to discredit Sarah Palin is the MSM’s idea of fair and balanced. What else did we expect?
So the only evidence that it was ghost written was a denial by the supposed ghost writer?
Meanwhile Bill Ayers claims to have written Obama’s book and that is evidence that he didn’t.
Time magizine is written by people with an obvious mental disorder.
That's what I was thinking. Bill Ayers wrote his books. Time said nothing about it.
Bias? Gee, d'ya think?
Just a further example of Liberal hypocrisy. They all know that this is true for pretty much all celebrity politician books, but now the are “Shocked! Shocked, I say.” that Palin had a ghost writer, or that there is something unusual about her having one.
Does anyone really expect the media to care? If someone delivered video footage of Obama kissing Arafat and calling for murder of all jews to a news organization, how many of those news operations would even mention it?
The humor of the story is that Mr. Eric Tully should be so outraged by an article that tells the truth.
26 Obama covers for TIME... or is it 27 now?
The answer is that it doesn't surprise them a bit, and for the left, this should be a "dog bites man" kind of story, but the report it anyways simply because it fits, and reinforces the template.
Likewise, the MSM has painted Obama as a man of letters, and far and away the most literary of all presidents. The fact that Ayers essentially wrote his book, while newsworthy in a "man bites dog" kind of way, does not fit the media template, and consequently it goes unreported.

Time is spinning it.
Any one who is not a serious writer uses a ghostwriter. There is absolutely nothing shady or wrong with it. Hillary had one along with the anointed one. Rush Limbaugh did not use one and the critic picked apart his books ruthlessly so in the end they are going after a conservative no matter what.
Touching themselves in anticipation of Levi Johnson's upcoming Playgirl spread I would guess.
that line from the story about the article is kind of misleading.
The supposed ghostwriter is mum on the story due to confidentiality agreements. The leap to denial stretches the phrase journalistic liscence to the snapping point.
That being said,Sarah has hid nothing. You’re quite correct about Ayers. The magazine is a joke.
If a politician is the "author", I expect that most will actually be written by a ghostwriter. Even JFK's Profile's in Courage was ghost written by his speechwriter Ted Sorenson, and Kennedy got a Pulitzer Prize for it.
Writing is hard, professional work. I don't expect a politician to build his own house with no help. Similarly, I don't expect one to write a book entirely. It would be nice if they didn't take sole credit though.
i didn't care that obama used a ghost writer for ‘dreams.’ of course he did, they all use ghost writers. imo, the issue was obama’s claim that ayers was a passing acquaintance but his status as ghost writer put the lie to that claim.
Does the Time-Lies hit piece at least point out that JFK didn't write Profiles In Courage and that Alex Haley's Roots was plagiarized?
Forget who “wrote” Dreams From My Father. I want to know who bought all those copies (Soros?) and made it a best seller when he hadn’t even done anything in his life.
So I guess that means I should buy two copies
hehehe... it just drives the libs bonkers
GO SARAH GO!
Time-Lies covers for Obama. Period.
They cover for him every week regardless if he’s ON the cover.
This is good. Now, Times will have no excuse for not discussing Jack Cashill’s iron-clad case that Bomber Bill Ayers wrote Obama’s “Dreams From My Father.”
This should of been hard to even get published , he was a nobody then. I read theories that this was to get money to him and portray the image they wanted.
“Even JFK’s Profile’s in Courage was ghost written by his speechwriter Ted Sorenson, and Kennedy got a Pulitzer Prize for it.”
What do you mean, “even”? Or was that word included because of the Pulitzer thing? Well, big deal, just like any other award, Pulitzers are political. LL Cool J is going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. Enough said.
Maybe Ronald Reagan is Our Sarah’s ghostwriter.
No wonder Slime Magazine is running scared!!!
but was hers written by a famous terrorist?
Rush did use a ghost writer. It was even posted about here. So what?
Google ghost writers and spend some time reading about the business. It's apparently good paying work if you can do it.
Yes and after all, if they were interested in doing hard honest work, they wouldn't be politicians.
It would be nice if they didn't take sole credit though.
Apparently that depends on what kind of contract is made with the ghost writer.
You are right. Vincent’s involvement was noted in the very first announcements of the book’s impending release. This is not the case of an unannounced ghost writer.
A professional writer/editor was on the project from the beginning. Now, the Clintons, the Kennedys and that crowd, we they never admit the involvment of their ghost writers until years later after basking in the MSN public glory — thats how it works.
We cancelled our subscription to Time after years and years.
Wrote on the renewal notice, ‘No thanks. I’m sick of your Obama fan magazine.’
Or it could just be that the committee that chose the winner was full of racists...
I’m waiting for Time to admit Obama was born in Kenya, and is not a natural born citizen.
If Obama and his war room and the MSM did not have so much invested in the “dolt and buffoon” Palin narrative and in this case Time Magazine, they would not be putting themselves in an untenable position consistently to prove its veracity.
They know that if Sarah’s political and intellectual credentials were ever LEGITIMIZED in the mind of the public, Obama would lose the next election. Thus the constant barrage of innuendo, smears and mockery to DELEGITIMIZE Sarah which is also reinforced by elitists and media pundits.
I stand corrected.
Not President Obama but Sarah Palin whose book titled Going Rogue: An American Life is set for release soon. What evidence do they cite? Well the author doesn't cite any but does say who the ghost writer is...The newspaper of long uninterrupted record of partisan shilling continues its ways.
An American Life
by Sarah Palin
Sooo, if Sarah has a “ghost”-writer, what kind of writer does Obambi have?
Hmmmm...scary, eerie, creepy...hmmm...
A little help here?
...not with a ten foot pole...
The proper term in this case is “collaborator” or “co-author”. Sarah, being an honest Republican, doesn’t hide the fact that she is using the services of a professional writer to help get her book in good shape. This was acknowledged in the very first press release from her publisher.
Dishonest, insecure Democrats, on the other hand, use anonymous “ghostwriters” to buff their pathetic inadequate accomplishments and fool the rubes into thinking them great intellectuals. Obama, both Clintons, and even JFK pulled this trick on their slobbering worshipers.
