Michelle Obama suffered the biggest humiliation of her life with this defeat
Michelle Obama was furious.
The former First Lady was used to always getting her way.
But she just suffered the biggest humiliation of her life with this defeat.
Many authors believe making The New York Times bestseller list is stamp of career validation,
If you top the chart, it means you made it in the literary world.
But that is not the case.
The bestseller list is just as fake as the news The New York Times prints about Donald Trump.
And that harsh truth was exposed when Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s book not only outsold former First Lady Michelle Obama’s book last week, but also outsold the book that The Times listed as number one on the bestseller list.
The New York Times bestseller list appears to have denied Judge Jeanine Pirro the number-one slot on its ranking system, despite the fact she sold over 17,000 more copies than Michelle Obama, and 6,000 more copies than the author who led the list.
There’s a mismatch between the rankings on the New York Times bestseller list and NPD Bookscan, the leading book-sale tracking service.
Statistics shown to Breitbart News by an NPD Bookscan subscriber show that in the past week, Judge Jeanine Pirro’s book has dominated the competition in terms of weekly book sales, with 26,950 books sold in launch week.
However, this does not appear to be reflected in the New York Times bestseller list, which currently places Jeanine’s book third in the rankings, behind Michelle Obama’s Becoming — despite the fact that the latter has far fewer weekly sales.
According to the NPD Bookscan figures sent to Breitbart News, Becoming had 9,677 sales in the past week, less than half that of Pirro’s book — yet it’s ahead of Pirro’s in the NYT rankings, at second place.
In a previous lawsuit, The Times admitted under oath that the bestseller list is not a true measure of book sales.
The Times takes editorial decision into account.
And they clearly artificially boosted the positioning of Michelle Obama’s book and downgraded Judge Jeanine’s so as not to offend the former First Lady.
