Conservative books on top, but NYT concludes Marx is “back in vogue”

Mark Levin held the #1 spot on the NYTimes best-seller list for 12 weeks this summer.

Culture of Corruption has held the top spot for the past 3 weeks.

Glenn Beck’s latest book has topped the paperback non-fiction list for 9 weeks.

The latest broadside against Obama from Dick Morris and Eileen McGann has also been on the NYT list for two months.

So what does a NYTimes book reviewer conclude?

Why, Karl Marx is “back in vogue.”

Always count on the Fishwrap of Record to have its finger on the pulse of America!


Via Christian Toto at Human Events:

Marji Ross, president and publisher of Regnery Publishing, isn’t surprised by the newspaper’s stance against these like-minded books.

“Very rarely do they review conservative books,” Ross says. “What they sometimes do is mention a book that is conservative on their “Inside the List” feature. It’s a way to defend themselves against the accusation they ignore these books.”

The New York Times did see fit to print reviews of major liberal books from Michael Moore (Dude, Where’s My Country?), Eric Alterman (What Liberal Media?) and Al Franken (Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them) but has yet to examine the aforementioned right-leaning bestsellers.

Having one’s book reviewed in The New York Times meant something up until recently.

“Traditionally, most publishers and authors are very eager to get in the New York Times to review their books,” Ross says.

Now, readers take their cues from talk radio and the Internet.

“People tend to trust what they hear on talk radio rather than what they might read in the New York Times,” she says. “They develop a relationship with a talk radio show and what the host likes and is interested in.”
