The New York Times’ reporting is unethical. The former paper of document’s best-selling guide chart is equally fraudulent.
Congratulations to The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles, whose new guide Speechless was the top-selling nonfiction guide with 18,000 copies bought the week ending June 26. The NYT, nonetheless, isn’t impressed, leaving Knowles’ guide off of its “bestseller list” fully.
How does that occur? A mistake? Or do they simply hate Knowles due to his sweaters?
Luckily, Annette Gordon-Reed’s On Juneteenth, which in response to BookScan bought simply 4,774 copies, nonetheless ranked on the charts. Great to see.
“One result of the BookScan service, which now reports almost all retail book sales, is that there are two kinds of bestseller lists: those that reflect how many books have been sold, and the New York Times list, which reflects — who knows what? The omission (once again) of the week’s bestselling book from the Times’ so-called bestseller list confirms that fact-free journalism has found a comfortable home at the former newspaper of record,” Tom Spence, the president of Regnery, the publishing home for Knowles’ guide, advised The Daily Wire.
One may blame the NYT. Others, like me, blame Knowles. How dare he write a nonfiction guide in 2021 and never cite white supremacy or name for male participation in feminine sports activities?
If you ask me, Mr. Knowles’ punishment isn’t sufficient.
Is Twitter actually going to let him maintain this pinned atop his account?
Glad to see Amazon has lastly acknowledged my function because the nation’s preeminent civil rights chief.
