Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I have not read Ted Cruz’s A Time for Truth. I generally do not buy partisan political books on my own, and I’m not on enough distribution lists to be routinely sent copies of the latest ones. But this is looking worse and worse for the New York Times:
The New York Times’ refusal to put Ted Cruz’s memoir on its bestseller list is once again being called into question — this time by Amazon, the largest Internet retailer in the country.
On Sunday, an Amazon spokesperson told the On Media blog that the company’s sales data showed no evidence of unusual bulk purchase activity for the Texas senator’s memoir, casting further doubt on the Times’ claim that the book — “A Time For Truth” — had been omitted from its list because sales had been driven by “strategic bulk purchases.”
