Andrea Tantaros’ Ghostwriter Exposed In Lawsuit

In 2016, Andrea Tantaros released a book called “Tied Up In Knots.” A review at blackfive.net said this:

“Tied Up in Knots by Andrea Tantaros is the 21st Century’s version of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. Both are about understanding the opposite sex. Tantaros argues relations between men and women in America have never been more dysfunctional while discussing the issues of intimacy, authenticity, kindness, respect, discretion, and above all commitment. Readers should know her as one of Fox News most informative commentators and a co-host of the show Outnumbered.

Both men and women need to read this book to get a fast check on relationships, how the sexes treat each other, and the responsibilities of society.”

It seems there may have been a ghostwriter involved. A male ghostwriter.

In a lawsuit just made public, the alleged ghostwriter of Andrea Tantaros’ book Tied Up In Knots has been exposed.

Courthouse News reports: 

“Thursday, a federal judge in New York unsealed a lawsuit by author Michael Krechmer who claims Tantaros paid him $150,000 to ghostwrite the screed.

A regular guest on Fox News who has collaborated with the likes of comedian D.L. Hughly and ultimate fighter Matt Hughes, Krechmer is also the author of “Dear Reader: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il,” for which he used the pen name Michael Malice.

Krechmer filed his lawsuit against Tantaros under seal to honor the terms of a confidentiality agreement that he contends a breach by Tantaros nullified.”

Michael “Malice” Krechmer is a frequent guest on Fox News. His Wikipedia entry says this:

“Michael Malice (born Michael Krechmer) is a New York City-based ghostwriter, author, columnist, and media personality.
Malice is the co-author of books with D. L. Hughley, Matt Hughes, Michael Fazio, and others. He is the co-creator and founding editor of the humor blog Overheard in New York. Malice’s early life was the subject of Harvey Pekar’s biography Ego & Hubris: The Michael Malice Story, illustrated by Gary Dumm. He is also the author of Dear Reader: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il[5], and a regular columnist at Observer. Since 2014, Malice has been a regular guest on the Fox News and Fox Business Network shows The Independents,[6] Kennedy, Red Eye, Tucker Carlson Tonight, and The Story with Martha MacCallum. He’s a regular guest on The Tom Woods Show podcast, and has recently appeared on The Alex Jones Show. On June 6, 2017, Malice joined Compound Media. He hosts a weekly show on Wednesdays titled Your Welcome.”

Here’s Michael “Malice” Krechmer on Joe Rogan’s podcast talking about his book on North Korea “Dear Reader”:

He seems like a guy who can stand on his own.

The moral of this story, according to Mike Cernovich:
