The New York Times reveals its political bias in refusing to list Pamela Geller’s book Fatwa: Hunted in America in its once-prestigious Best Sellers list for hardcover non-fiction.
Milo Yiannopoulos, November 13, 2017:
Despite outselling both Hillbilly Elegy and Why We Sleep (#14 and #15 respectively), Fatwa: Hunted in America did not make it onto the list at all.
The reason it didn’t make the cut is simple: the New York Times employs bias when it fills up the ranks of its list, omitting books that the editors in charge do not want promoted.
In September, conservative publishing company Regnery cut its ties with the New York Times following allegations of the newspaper’s left-leaning slant in picking books to feature on the list.
As detailed by the Washington Times, Regnery has moved towards relying on Publishers Weekly lists to determine best-seller status, and no longer allows authors published under its label to self-identify with the New York Times list, or distribute bonuses based on their performance in the newspaper.
“Increasingly, it appears that the Times has gathered book sale data in a manner which prioritizes liberal-themed books over conservative books and authors,” Regnery President Marji Ross wrote in a statement. “The net result has been a bestseller list that has increasingly become less relevant to the Regnery audience, and less reflective of which books are actually selling best in the country, regardless of one’s political persuasion.”
The New York Times denies the allegations against it, stating that conservative writers have—at least in the past—been given high spots. A spokesperson for the paper said that its best-sellers’ lists are also based on interviews with book stores.
“The political views of authors have no bearing on our rankings,” the New York Times spokesman Jordan Cohen told The Associated Press, adding that the allegations of political bias were “simply ludicrous.”
However, his words—as noted by the Washington Times—fall flat in the face of the paper’s political coverage, which has been anti-Trump, pro-Islam, anti-Israel, and notoriously racist in the recent weeks and months.
The paper has published op-eds by convicted terrorists like Marwan Barghouti, who was given five consecutive life terms in Israel for his role in a terror attack that killed five people. This weekend, the paper published an op-ed by a black professor who ruled out friendship between African Americans and whites.
The paper has also been increasingly favorable towards communism, publishing multiple puff-pieces about the glory days of the Soviet Union and China under the rule of Mao Zedong with pieces like “Why Women Had Better Sex Under Socialism” and “How Mao Molded Communism to Create a New China.”
It goes without saying that the Grey Lady has a bias that should be clearly apparent except to blind, deaf mutes, and it should come as no surprise that the paper’s politics reflect in its selection bias for its bestsellers’ lists.
