Skip to comments.D'Souza's new book banned from NY Times bestseller list
Posted on 06/21/2014 5:37:19 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
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.”

Now that Slick Willie’s wife’s book has taken a tumble, they’ll probably “apologize” and let it back on the list. They’ve done everything they could do to make her look good.
Nacht und Nebel — it affects books as well as people.
It’s decided on the same basis that Nobel Peace Prizes are handed out. By whoever/whatever makes the greatest contributions toward world socialism.
They are accurate about what they think ought to be selling!
welcome to 1930s nazi germany. we’ve actually been there awhile now.
Though I do have to say that for every THREE immigrants to America, ONE does go back to his/her homeland. I've read that statistic many times over the decades.
I don't think many Asian countries realize how hard Americans work. I know that some Russian folks came here and were shocked that Americans worked so much and so hard. They seemed to think that the streets were paved in gold and everything was free.
Hah. Live and learn, товарищ (tovarishch).
And The Times says they’re unbiased.
Not even a pretense of objectivity. Hypocrisy is the new reality.
They’re becoming more irrelevant as time goes on. Most people expect newspaper reporting to be non-fiction.
Strange. Have they finally decided to stop allowing conservative books on their list? They usually stay there a long time and get no mentions or reviews in the paper.
That’s why I use my tag line courtesy of Mark Twain. No not that one, the other one.
How did Hillary’s revision of her time as Sec of State get classified as NON-fiction?
The list is now worthless. Another political illusion, just like the government statistics.
The list is now as worthless as the Nobel Peace Prize.
When is the book burning ?
Another page borrowed from the Soviet playbook: the Soviets airbrushed from images individuals who became non-grata after the picture was taken for political purposes; the NYT is now “airbrushing” books out of the list for political purposes.
Hmmmm...sounds like they are much like the book burners of previous history.
I’m #6 on the HOLD list for this book at my uber-Liberal Lie-bary. I can hardly BELIEVE that they’re OFFERING it to be shared/read! Hmmmm...maybe even the local Libtards have turned against The Won? *SNORT*
“D’Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country.”
Next move for the NY Times - book burnings.....
I’ve not followed the story closely, but from what I understand, this guy has written and produced documentaries the administration doesn’t like and therefore being an enemy of the state is being investigated. This is happening both as a means of punishment and as an example of what happens if you defy this evil at work. It is an unclean spirit ruling from the white house,
It was rightly called tyranny when Nixon was accused of far less,
Now they get a pass by pretending its just politics, nothing to see here, the MSM not only is complicit in furthering this injustice but is wholly ignorant of why its not journalism they practice but instead sycophantic worship,
This nation is in its lasts days as a republic,
They’re scared that Americans will appreciate the real America and choose conservatives to revive it.
The New York Times.... what’s that?
The NY Slimes learned the Soviet playbook quite early, while Uncle Joe was still the goto guy in charge of the Progressive Revolution.
Best cat litter box liner ever! And the best use for such otherwise trash.
The Commies are doing a full court press to make sure the Hildebeast become President. Anyone trying to influence public opinion with conservative ideas, gets kicked to the curb.
“Im #6 on the HOLD list for this book at my uber-Liberal Lie-bary. I can hardly BELIEVE that theyre OFFERING it to be shared/read!”
Librarians are forefront Commies today. We had a neighbor some years back that was a “retired Librarian.” He thought that there were just some things that people should not be allowed to read. Guess what those things were.
In a sense, Dinesh is we...and we are he!
The NY Times is not on my top 50 reading list.
True, and also floating early on (before shes a candidate and required to answer) any negative angles that could paint her in a bad light, so she controls the conversation and can later claim “its old news, nothing to see here” rather than have it be brought up closer to the election when it could have even a minor influence,
its alinsky/Goebbels propaganda techniques at work and its just getting started,
I wouldn’t be surprised to see someone like McCain endorse her or even get on the ticket if it looks like she has it wrapped up,
But I’ll be looking to see where that evil spirit inside that thing currently occupying the white house goes to, what other candidates have that same look, its in his eyes and it wont release that authority easily,
New York Times about to discover how irrelevant it has become
