  • Milo’s ‘Dangerous’ shoots to Amazon top slot; Liberal celebrities’ support of boycott backfires

    Simon & Schuster’s decision to publish a book by Breitbart News’ Milo Yiannopoulos appears to be paying off with retailer Amazon despite calls from liberal celebrities for a boycott. Mr. Yiannopoulos announced Thursday that he was given a $250,000 contract by publishing giant Simon & Schuster. His pronouncement that irate critics only fuel his fame did not dissuade Hollywood entertainers like Sarah Silverman and Judd Apatow from joining calls for a boycott. “Dangerous” shot to the No. 1 slot on the U.S. Amazon Best Seller list less than 24 hours later. “In response to this disgusting validation of hate, we...

    Vote of Confidence A huge black turnout in November 1992 altered Chicago's electoral landscape—and raised a new political star: a 31-year-old lawyer named Barack Obama. By Gretchen Reynolds A huge black turnout in November 1992 altered Chicago's electoral landscape-and raised a new political star: a 31-year-old lawyer named Barack Obama. In the final, climactic buildup to November's general election, with George Bush gaining ground on Bill Clinton in Illinois and the once-unstoppable campaign of senatorial candidate Carol Moseley Braun embroiled in allegations about her mother's Medicare liability, one of the most important local stories managed to go virtually unreported: The...

    -snip- McCain made his first million the old-fashioned way: he married the daughter of a wealthy businessman. But Barack Obama, the son of an absent African father and a mother who relied on government-issued food stamps to feed her children, became a millionaire in a more modern manner – on the back of a book deal. It happened circuitously. In 1990, Obama was already enough of a celebrity – the first black president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review – for the New York publishers Simon & Schuster to offer a “six-figure contract” for a proposed autobiography. The only problem...

    Later this month the book "Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope" will be published by Simon & Schuster. Nikki Grimes, a children's author and poet, wrote enthusiastically on her website that a book usually takes her 3-6 months to write, but in this case she "miraculously" finished it in just two weeks. It is full of rhyming verses, descriptions of the exotic countries that little Obama visited, and conversation "Barry" the kid holds with hope. Even God himself talks to Barry while he's in church on Sunday, telling him: "Look around you. Now look to me. There is...

    NEW YORK -- It takes an anniversary, and a lot of sales, to inspire a new edition. Hillary Rodham Clinton's "It Takes a Village" is being reissued in December, with a new foreword by the senator, to mark the book's 10th year since publication. "When we published `It Takes a Village' 10 years ago, Hillary Rodham Clinton brought to the fore her long-standing concerns about how public policy affects our children — in ways both large and small," Carolyn Reidy, president of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement released Tuesday. "Though new readers continually discover this influential and important...

    In the past, the experiences of war have produced poetry and novels and memoirs. The War on Terror is different: we're seeing through a new set of eyes, a new kind of literature. In real time, on the Internet, officers and enlisted men and women are chronicling the war on weblogs. As the number of blogs continue to rise dramatically, blogging’s advent – the effect of which has been likened to that of the printing press on the Reformation - is giving the world the opportunity to experience the world’s latest war – the War on Terror – first hand....

    It is the ultimate Washington story, told by the ultimate Washington chronicler. But in Washington and just about everywhere else, sales of "The Secret Man," Bob Woodward's story of the source known as Deep Throat, have been underwhelming. At Politics and Prose, a well-known independent bookstore in Washington, sales were "not very good, compared to expectations," said Mark LaFramboise, who ordered 400 copies of the book for the store. As of last week, Politics and Prose had sold "60-something," he said. "I expected it to be a blockbuster," he said. "I was wrong." At Prairie Lights Books in Iowa City,...

    Did Simon and Schuster violate the law by passing tapes that President Bush didn't consent to having taped. It may have been legal for Wead to tape, but if the person being taped doesn't know it can the be broadcast to the public legally? I think Simon and Schuster paid Hitlary her $8 million and Bill's book too. Did O'Neil and Wilson's book too I think. Wead is scumbag, he had to know that Simon & Schuster has been out for his "friend".
  • RESEARCHER ALLEGES POTENTIAL PLAGIARISM IN 11 PASSAGES OF KERRY'S WRITINGS

    NYSUN.COM ^ | OCTOBER 26, 2004 | JOSH GERSTEIN
    An academic researcher has found 11 passages in Senator Kerry's published writings that appear to have been taken from other works without attribution, though experts disagree about whether the copying should be considered plagiarism. Six of the passages come from Mr. Kerry's 1997 book, "The New War: The Web of Crime That Threatens America's National Security." All bear some similarity to news accounts that preceded publication of the book. In one instance, Mr. Kerry wrote, "Russian mobsters have been arrested in Germany for extortion, car theft, counterfeiting, prostitution, selling drugs and illegal weapons, and smuggling everything from icons to uranium."...
