Boortz tells TruthOrFiction.com, however, that so far, it’s never actually been delivered at a commencement.
He says he wrote the speech about 1997 in protest of never having been invited to give a commencement address.
It became the springboard for his first book, “The Commencement Speech You Need To Hear.”
Later he produced an audio CD of the speech complete with crowd noise and applause, which has been aired on his radio program.
Boortz says that although Texas A & M is his alma mater, it is not true that he gave the speech there.
