“Every time someone says ‘team of rivals,’ I sell another book on Amazon. Team of rivals, team of rivals, team of rivals.” — author Doris Kearns Goodwin.But Doris Kearns Goodwin never said this; the quote was taken from a parody by comedian Andy Borowitz.
The Star later published this embarassing admission:
A quote in The Buzz on Nov. 28 that was attributed to historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was actually from humorist Andy Borowitz.Read the full Borowitz parody item here, then ask yourself how anybody could read this and think it was for real.
