Was Bugliosi's "Reclaiming History" ghostwritten ?


Recommended Posts

One of the selling points of Bugliosi's book was that he was a

straightforward and honest guy who put that maniac Charles Manson

behind bars. His reputation was unquestioned, his judgement seemed

solid.

Now we find out that this rock of an American, who presented his

latest tome as the work of his own pen, farmed out chapters of the

book to other writers and failed to mention their contributions to his

work, presenting their writings as his own.

Len Osanic interviewed David Lifton who says that he was told by someone at Bugliosi's publisher, Norton, that the book was ghostwritten and different chapters were written by different authors.

This should be investigated further. I know if I had bought a book

that he had presented as his own and it was written by someone else,

I'd be asking for my money back.

If it ends up being factual, Bugliosi deceived his publisher, Norton as well as the public.

Good find Gil!

We should post this in a review on amazon.

Among other things, Lifton claims that Patricia Lambert wrote the chapter on Jim Garrison. Lifton stated that he and Lambert were best friends for many years, and that he recognizes her writing style.

He hopes that if there is a second printing or a paperback that Bugliosi will have "the cojones" to make the proper acknowledgements to all that assisted in the writing of different chapters. Lifton does mention that he is short of proving his claims within the confines of this interview.

Lifton also states that he is contemplating retaining an attorney to combat the false claims Bugliosi makes about Lifton's work.

That was part one. Here is Black Op's summary of part two:

# Although the case has been proven, Bugliosi fails to mention how the body arrived at Bethesda

# It arrived in a body bag and in a metal shipping casket - It wasn't sent that way from Dallas

# Lifton states he believes that Bugliosi is sincere in his belief that Oswald was the lone assassin-- against the evidence

# Oswald told his brother not to believe the so-called evidence but Bugliosi missed this important statement completely

# David says you shouldn't spend more than a dollar on this book

# You can join the Literary Guild; You can get 5 books plus a free gift for 99 cents plus a promise to buy four further books in the next two years

# Lifton states the movement is split and until there is a consensus, there will not be a proper investigation

# David promises a clear and concise explanation of the autopsy alterations in a future work to be released soon

# He has no website as yet but he's working on it

That would be beautiful to watch Bug implode when it's exposed that he didn't even do the writing.

Not that the media would report it.

Egos like these, Myra, are designed to never implode.

It's a remarkable feat of engineering when you think about it.
