My goodness, no-one has mentioned the scene where Pippin steals the palantír then looks in it after Orthanc falls...
After Pippin looks in the palantír he passes out. After Gandalf revives Pippin, he relates his mental...clairvoyant..whatever you want to call it conversation with Sauron on the other end of the line:
'I tried to get away, because I thought it would fly out; but when it had covered all the globe, it disappeared. Then he came. He did not speak.... He just looked, and I understood.
"So you have come back? Why have you neglected to report for so long?"
'I did not answer. He said: "Who are you?" I still did not answer, but it hurt me horribly..., so I said: "A hobbit."
'Then suddenly he seemed to see me, and he laughed at me. It was cruel.... I struggled.
But he said: "Wait a moment! We shall meet again soon. Tell Saruman that this dainty is not for him. I will send for it at once. Do you understand? Say just that!"
'Then he gloated over me. I felt I was falling to pieces. No, no! I can't say any more. I don't remember anything else.'
The Two Towers, (Book V) Chapter 10, "The Voice of Saruman"
It's been pointed out by @chepner that we are getting Sauron's dialogue second-hand via Pippin, rather than "first-hand" via the omniscient narrator. However, just before Pippin's exchange with Gandalf, as he's coming out of his trance, he also says the "Tell Saruman...say just that" part exactly, so this is more like a compulsion to repeat Sauron's words verbatim than a game of "telephone".
@Nolimon makes a good point that the narrator isn't omniscient anyway, it's actually Frodo (maybe Bilbo) writing down what Gandalf (maybe Pippin) told him.
