After noticing that The New York Times’ renowned “bestseller” list is biased in favor of liberal titles and writer, Regnery Publishing, the largest conservative publisher in the United States, has announced its decision to sever all ties with the left-leaning news outlet.
“As a conservative publisher, we believe that the Times’ list does not represent national sales of conservative books as accurately as other widely-published bestseller lists,” commented Marji Ross, president and publisher at Regnery, in an official press release.
Regnery notes that No Go Zones, in which Raheem Kassam reveals how some areas have been transformed beyond recognition by mass immigration and state-sponsored multiculturalism, should have had the 10th highest sales of the 15 books on the New York Times list for the week of Sep. 3, 2017, according to Nielsen BookScan data — but the title is not featured at all.
Dinesh D’Souza’s latest book, The Big Lie, which exposes the American Left’s past relationship and present affinity with the Nazis and their tactics, should have been ranked at number one in sales — but the New York Times had it trailing at a distant number seven.
The Times list no longer represents genuine bestsellers per sales data from across the United States. Instead, the organization admits that it now “surveys” hand-picked booksellers across the country on which to base its list.
This contrasts with, for example, the Publisher’s Weekly list, which uses quantifiable data of sales, while the Times employs its own, undisclosed methodology, which appears — like pollsters — to re-weight the list, according to a report in Breitbart that shines a light on the deceptive practices of the once-esteemed news outlet.
Times spokesman Jordan Cohen claimed its lists “reflect authentic best sellers” — but Regnery charges that the newspaper is “[gathering] book sale data in a manner which prioritizes liberal-themed books over conservative books and authors.”
Ross stated that her company will cease to “highlight a list which has an increasingly diminished value to our audience. Therefore, we will no longer promote, publicize or, frankly, even bother to mention this list.”
She added that Regnery has better options than the liberalized New York Times. “Instead, we will continue to track sales, as a large number of media groups do, through Nielsen’s BookScan report, and we will use the Publisher’s Weekly bestseller list as our benchmark.”
In a letter to Regnery’s authors, she noted: “We are often told it’s foolish to bite the hand that feeds you. I say it’s just as foolish to feed the hand that bites you.”
Dennis Michael Lynch, CEO of DML NEWS, who is currently writing a book entitled, “Fighting For Trump,” commented on the news: “If you are a creator of content, and if you are a conservative, then you will be censored and or restricted. Youtube videos get censored. Facebook posts gets censored. Films get censored. I have felt the pain of all three scenarios. I guess my new book will make it so I touch all four bases. It’s a sad time in America. Very sad.”
