C-SPAN's Book TV's Peter Slen asked publisher Jenn Risko why George W. Bush was doing so well with the sales of his recently published memoir and we got some blather about how relaxed he looks these days and how people are just curious as to what went on behind the scenes with his administration and other similar nonsense.
I happened to catch some of Hannity's show where he devoted the full hour to pimping W's book on Fox, so I think Ms. Risko forgot to mention a couple of reasons why the sales are going so well. Other than Fox doing their best to push the sales of Bush's book as Hannity was doing, we also have the fact that many conservative organizations buy up books in bulk from the authors they want to push and give them away for free to make sure they end up in spots where they don't belong on the best seller's list.
Sadly C-SPAN only seems to cater to right wing authors. John and Dave never had a chance of getting an appearance on the network to talk about their book, Over the Cliff, but they'll give every right wing nut job a full hour on there at every opportunity. And they'll also pretend Georgie's book is doing just fine with sales without any help from the usual suspects out there pushing the right wing propaganda.
Here's the beginning of Hannity's hour long love fest with W if you've got the stomach for it.
