The New York Times is a hub for all things comprising intellectual snobbery. They fancy themselves as unbiased and willing to go against the grain. So edgy they are. Just not when it comes to abortion, or other important issues (see New York Times Suggests Stupid “New” Gun Control “Solutions.”). Take this scenario, for instance. A new book called “Gosnell” has been deliberately excluded from NYT’s bestsellers club. Despite it being a bestseller. I’m sure you can guess why…
It sold out in three days on Amazon and is the fourth bestselling hardcover nonfiction title in the country, but the New York Times did not include a new book about Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell on its best seller list to be published Sunday.
According to Regnery Publishing, Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, should be on the nonfiction list behind The Magnolia Story, which sold 10,000. Gosnell sold 7,644.
The snub prompted the authors to claim that the story continues to be ignored by the mainstream media despite the public’s hunger for it.
The Times doesn’t discuss how it ranks books. Other conservative books have initially been left off it’s influential lists only to show up in following weeks.
In short, NYT claims to care about books. Unless said book doesn’t align with their political agenda. In which case…
The book itself has enjoyed huge success. Huger even than that of Tess Holliday’s chin region. Speaking of which, you can buy it here. The book, not the chins.
Also the authors of Gosnell, Ann Mcelhinney and Phelim McAleer are friends of the show. So we’re not keen on what the New York Times is up to here.
There’s no practical reason as to why Gosnell wouldn’t be listed among a collection of bestsellers. You know, besides the “I don’t like you” reason… By the way, this is the same New York Times who flings accusations of blacklisting and propaganda on a regular basis. Interesting.
Of course, the New York Times can choose to highlight the works of whom they please. A friendly suggestion? Change the name of the collection from “bestsellers” to “moderately successful books which offend us not.” Then seek professional help in removing one’s head from thine butt.
As we’ve seen with most leftists, this massive publication touts “intellectual diversity.” Yet seemingly follows through with diddly squat (see New York Times Faces MAJOR Backlash After Biased Election Coverage…). Which appears to be the case with most leftist values. Claims of unity, tolerance, and diversity all tend to get thrown to the wayside when inconvenient. Like an unexpected fetus. Tis common practice among the left, clearly…
