Zuckerman's Curious Claim

Real Estate and media mogul Mort Zuckerman raised eyebrows when suggested on Fox News that he "helped write" one of President Obama's speeches. His subsequent refusal to elaborate was especially curious.

Ben Smith notes that neither of the president's speechwriters, Jon Favreau and Ben Rhodes, have "ever met or spoken" to Zuckerman and the two have "been closely involved in every speech the President has given since 2005."
