David Limbaugh’s Jesus on Trial has hit bestseller status (see review here). But you would never know it by the New York Times best seller list.
As you might suspect, this isn’t the first time The New Times has done this. The paper’s “All the news that’s fit to print” motto that appears on the paper’s masthead is best interpreted to mean “we print only the news that our editorial department determines is fit to print based on our leftist operating principles.”
Dinesh D.Souza’s America: Imagine a World Without Her was kept off the best seller list even though previous books by D’Souza had made the list. In fact, the cover copy of America has “New York Times Best Selling Author” under the title. America cut a little too close to the liberal bone.
The Times had gone all in for Obama, and D’Souza had exposed him and the folly of those who supported him.
“Now it’s David Limbaugh’s latest book Jesus on Trial. [Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner] reports the Times’ crew has ‘banished conservative legal author David Limbaugh’s latest, Jesus on Trial, from its upcoming best seller list despite having sales better than 17 other books on the list.’
“According to publishing sources, Limbaugh’s probe into the accuracy of the Bible sold 9,660 in its first week out, according to Nielsen BookScan. That should have made it No. 4 on the NYT print hardcover sales list.
“Instead, Henry Kissinger’s World Order, praised by Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post, is No. 4 despite weekly sales of 6,607.
“As Secrets wrote about a similar banishment early in the sales of conservative Dinesh D’Souza’s America, the Gray Lady is mysterious in how it calculates its list. A spokeswoman said, ‘We let the rankings speak for themselves and are confident they are accurate.’
“The September 28 list of the top 20 print hardcover best sellers includes one book that sold just 1,570 copies.”
I don’t pay much attention to the New York Times or its best-seller list, and neither should you…
