In all honesty, I know teachers who put in the kind of hours he's describing. They're not the norm, but there are more than a few who do. I also know teachers who put in substantially less time than that being describe (myself included).

I usually arrive at school at 7:30 and leave at 4:30. I usually put in about 1 hour a night at home. The weekends might consist of 2 hours of planning, provided I haven't taken up a major paper (usually take up 6 a semester). If I have, then I probably have 14 or so hours of grading on the weekend.

Of course, I only teach 3 classes right now (I've taken on a partial administrative duty) with a total of 65 students throughout the day. Only having a single prep (I only teach one course) and far smaller numbers than I've had in the past seriously reduces the amount of planning and grading I must do. On the other hand, I do spend a lot of time doing administrative crap during the school day when I could possibly be grading or planning.
