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.
Like Paul, Bozell is someone who decries government affirmative action programs while essentially inheriting his position from daddy. Unlike Paul, Bozell has done it while wearing the world’s ickiest ginger-beard.
And then, the punchline, on top of the punchline.
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.
That statement had to be accompanied by a sad trombone sound.
