McClellan Book Published by Soros Connected Company

In one of the least surprising facts to come out of the publishing of Scott McClellan's hit job on President Bush is the knowledge that the book was edited and published by people with far left political leanings. It can also be determined that the publishing house responsible has ties to billionaire George Soros.

Newsbusters has the scoop:

Peter Osnos, who wrote Wednesday that he "worked very closely" with Scott McClellan on McClellan's new book published by PublicAffairs which Osnos founded, is a liberal whose publishing house is affiliated with the far-left The Nation magazine and the publisher of The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder. PublicAffairs has a roster of authors who are nearly all liberals and/or liberal-leaning mainstream media figures, including six books by far-left bank-roller George Soros. On Wednesday's CBS Evening News, Ari Fleischer related that "Scott told me that his editor did 'tweak,' in Scott's word, a lot of the writing, especially in the last few months." In an "Eat the Press" blog entry Wednesday, Rachel Sklar asked Osnos: "Did you work directly on the book with McClellan? (Who was his editor?)" Osnos replied: "The editor was Lisa Kaufman and yes, I worked very closely with them."

Osnos's connections are fleshed out expertly by Newsbusters and they include his ties to The Nation publishing group as well as The Century Foundation.

One wonders why a supposedly conservative author would have anything to do with these sleazebags. Just another nail in McClellan's coffin.
