‘Killing Deep State’ Now on NY-T’s Bestseller List
$AMZN, $BKS, $NYT, $NLSN
Thursday, the New York Times (NYSE:NYT) has finally acknowledged what the book world has known for weeks: conservative author Jerome Corsi’s widely-acclaimed “Killing the Deep State: The Fight to Save President Trump” is a bonafide bestseller.
Under mounting pressure, the paper agreed to list the book at #15 on its combined print and e-Book bestseller list.
Meanwhile “Killing the Deep State” has climbed to the #1 spot on several Amazon categories and is already a top 10 bestseller with Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS)
Despite this, the Times still refuses to include it on its more prestigious hardcover non-fiction list despite the fact that it has sold many more copies than books that have been included, according to Nielsen BookScan (NYSE:NLSN), the industry’s nationally-recognized sales tracking service.
Titles such as “Pretty Mess” by Erika Jayne, “Obama” by Pete Souza, and “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark,” by Michelle McNamara, are on the Times’ hardcover list, while “Killing the Deep State” which sold more copies than each of those titles, is still missing.
Mr. Corsi’s book describes “deep state” efforts at agencies like the FBI, Department of Justice, and NSA aimed at destroying Donald Trump’s Presidency.
“They don’t want any book that will support President Trump, who they detest, to be on The New York Times bestseller list. Even if the book legitimately outsells most of the other books,” he said.
“It’s completely disgraceful and dishonest. But again, The New York Times is disgraceful and dishonest these days.”
