Matthews vs. McClellan

On last night’s Hardball, Chris Matthews insinuated that Scott McClellan’s publisher, Peter Osnos, wrote the book:

MITCHELL: Those who did say that the analysis, the depth of the analysis, the writing of this book perhaps reflects some very good editing and some other information…

MATTHEWS: So Peter Osnos (ph) wrote it?

MITCHELL: I wouldn‘t—I have no way of…

MATTHEWS: I‘ll tell you…


MITCHELL: I‘m just saying…

MATTHEWS: … it‘s written like a very sophisticated writer, for, like, “The New York Times” or someone like that. It reads extremely well.
