Brent Bozell Reportedly Forces Someone To Write All His Columns And Books For Him

Brent Bozell uses his books and columns to rail against liberal media bias and dishonesty, but he reportedly doesn’t write a word.

Jim Romenesko spoke to some people affiliated with Bozell’s Media Research Center and learned from a former employee that the group’s media analysis director, Tim Graham, writes “almost everything published under [Bozell’s] name.”

The former employee also noted that, despite not actually writing any of the content, Bozell still collects 80-90 percent of the profits.

Graham evidently hates the assignment, which one ex-employee called “forced ghostwriting.”

The president of Creators Syndicate, which carries the column, told Romenesko that it’s “absolutely false to say that Brent Bozell does not write his column,” but nevertheless, Bozell and Graham will begin sharing a byline.

We last heard from Bozell a week ago when his other group, ForAmerica, unveiled its campaign to remove every Republican congressional leader from office this year.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
