Dinesh D'Souza's 'America' banished from New York Times best seller list
Washington Examiner ^ | 6/20/14 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 06/20/2014 5:10:20 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

The New York Times bestseller list hasn't waited a millisecond to put Hillary Clinton's book atop its influential chart after just a week of sales, but has totally ignored another top-10 hardcover from noted conservative and critic of President Obama, Dinesh D'Souza.

His new book, on sale for three weeks, isn’t just absent from the top 10 lists already set for the next two Sundays, but totally missing from the list of the nation’s top 25 nonfiction hardcovers despite having sales higher than 13 on the latest Times chart.

The books on the “best seller” list are supposed to be there because they’re best sellers. I’ve never bought that.

We have a facist press, not a free press.

The NY Slime: “all the news that fits.” The “Old Grey Lady” has gotten senile, with a case of Alzheimer's. Poor baby, my heart bleeds.

Does Bedard have any evidence to back up his claim? Why doesn’t he show the source of the sales numbers he cites?

His new movie “America” comes out July 2nd, people.

Call your local big theater and ask if it will be showing.

‘According to sales reports provided to Secrets, D’Souza’s new book America: Imagine a World Without Her, sold 4,915 in the first week and 5,592 in the second week. Had it been included on the upcoming June 22 Times hardcover nonfiction list, it would have ranked No. 8, and then No. 11 on the June 29 list that puts Clinton’s sales at 85,721. The lists are widely circulated in the publishing industry before they go public.

‘The Times is somewhat mysterious in how it calculates its list, but it includes several books selling well under 3,000 copies in a week. A spokeswoman said, “We let the rankings speak for themselves and are confident they are accurate.”’

Guess diversity is just a sham to these racists at the NYT.

During the 1970s, L. Ron Hubbard had his emissaries go to all the bookstores on Manhattan and buy his book, guaranteeing that the sampling technique (weekly sales at randomly chosen book stores) the Slimes used back then would have his latest masterpiece at/near the top of the list.

"Push" marketing as it were...

The only thing worse than a corrupt government is a corrupt media.

Michelle Malkin’s book “Culture of Corruption: Obama’s Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies” spent 6 weeks at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, but the New York Times never reviewed the book. In fact, none of the major newspapers reviewed the book.

When Mark Levin refers to this “newspaper” as the New York Slimes, he knew what he was talking about. I’d love to send them a copy of their newspaper, complete with some kind of slimy liquid all over it, to give them a “feel” for what I think of their news rag.

“The only thing worse than a corrupt government is a corrupt media.”

Corrupt media and the mediots, who lie and skew the news, enable corrupt governments to be electied and stay in power.

Who depends on the NY Slimes for a valid suggested reading list?

If they do, they shouldn’t be posting here.

How about a ban on leaving links for lefty sites as the NY Slimes, LAT, CNN etc and avoid giving them a click point?

A good ideal, I try to avoid doing that.

Discuss it with Jim.

Are the numbers affected by how many Amazon buys?

The NY Slimes can’t stand the existence of an opinion other than theirs.

The NYT is no longer a newspaper. It is officially birdcage liner to the masses.
