Author Affiliations

Letters Section Editor: Robert M. Golub, MD, Senior Editor.

JAMA. 2005;293(12):1449-1450. doi:10.1001/jama.293.12.1449-b

To the Editor: JAMA published single-author Commentaries on health care by President Bush and Senator Kerry.1,2 Sole authorship implies that each of them wrote their own article without benefit of ghostwriters, silent authors, or unnamed coauthors. I doubt that is correct. Likewise, there was no conflict of interest or financial disclosure statement. Did the candidates receive no funding that might possibly influence their opinions?
