Regnery Publishing is a company that publishes books by Conservative authors, mostly big names you would recognize. They’re now severing ties with the New York Times which they have accused of manipulating their bestseller list.
This isn’t the first time that the Times has been accused of this. Bill O’Reilly made similar charges many times over the years.
The Fresno Bee reports:
Conservative publisher wants nothing more to do with Times
A company that publishes books by Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter and other conservative authors says it wants nothing to do anymore with The New York Times and its best-seller list.
Regnery Publishing said on Monday it will no longer recognize the Times’ accounting of book sales, meaning its writers can no longer claim to be “New York Times best-selling authors.” That’s a big deal in the book business.
Regnery is annoyed that its book “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left” was only No. 7 on the Times’ latest best-sellers list even though another organization that tracks sales ranked it No. 1. Regnery says another of its books, “No Go Zones: How Sharia Law is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You,” is also not ranked as highly by the Times as it deserves to be.
The Times noted that conservative authors have routinely ranked high and in great numbers on its best-sellers list.
Regnery has been talking about this on Twitter:

None of this would be a problem if the New York Times would just declare their bias and stop trying to pretend they have any objectivity.
