Rush Limbaugh Shouldn’t Talk About Ghostwriters « The Washington Independent
I see that Rush Limbaugh is buying into the the thinly sourced “Bill Ayers wrote Obama’s first memoir” conspiracy theory, helping push this from the fringe to the conservative mainstream. (Limbaugh’s birther jokes were pivotal in pushing that weirdness into the culture.)
There are people who can act holier-than-thou about ghostwriters. Rush Limbaugh is not one of them. His first book, “The Way Things Ought to Be,” was famously written by John Fund of The Wall Street Journal. His second book was ghostwritten by Joseph Farah, who then became editor-in-chief of WorldNetDaily. And to complete the circle, WND has been a main source for Jack Cashill’s numerous articles about the Obama-Ayers book conspiracy.
