Skip to comments.Woodward book breaks 93-year publishing record
Posted on 09/13/2018 12:09:31 PM PDT by EveningStar
Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher.
The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Unless George Soros bought them all.
Didn't the media tell us Hillary was going to win the election, or that Trump colluded with Russia? WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE THEM WHEN THEY LIE TO US ABOUT LEFTY BOOK SALES?
A 93 year publishing record? Wow, that’s really good, and in the fiction category! Congrats to Woodward. Next book, maybe he should do something in the non-fiction category. /sarc
Fiction is popular these days and people seem to love gossip.
Our society is devolving. Thanks for nothing leftism.
The True Believers of the Hildabeast grasping at straws.
Best selling book by a 93-year-old.
There’s a lot of money to be made peddling falsehoods about Trump.
Its believable. Subscriptions and sales are off the hook in all categories for the left and trashing President Trump whether we like it or not. The left is a self sustaining entity and nothing the right says or does penetrates it. Hell..the President spends half his time responding to their garbage.
Gee, the party of the “little” people...sure has a “lot” of money to burn.
CNN, MSNBC, and all the news broadcasts on the alphabet channels are getting dismal ratings yet Woodwards book sales are going through the roof? The leftist intellectuals read but not their electorate. Looks like mass buying to me. Youll see copies of the book in Democrat headquarters and precinct offices around the country, and in the Dollar Tree and 99 Cent stores in time for Christmas!
Not with my dime.
Well, if you’re going to make up a book out of thin air, why not make up publicist propaganda out of thin air?
Great job Woodward. You’ve not only destroyed our own credibility, but you’re now chomping away at Simon and Schuster’s as well.
How did these people buy the book? Did they use EBT or SNAP cards or welfare? Or was it supplemental income or some other government program we’re all paying for?
Are these vapor sales from the vapor warehouse?
CNN and MSNBC combined beat FOX by at least a million every single night. Maddow regularly beats or ties Hannity. New York Times and Washington Post subscriptions are way up. Those are facts. FOX is a tiny bubble and half of the content is anti-Trump drivel.
Unless George Soros bought them all.
Didn’t the media tell us Hillary was going to win the election, or that Trump colluded with Russia? WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE THEM WHEN THEY LIE TO US ABOUT LEFTY BOOK SALES?
We have a winner!!!!
Yes, in a way. These books were bought by PACs, think tanks, etc. They will be handed out as freebies and swag at their "events".
Anyone who has the slightest familiarity with publishing knows that these purchases were not driven by individual sales. Even the lib reviewers say the prose is stiff and wooden, dull, and almost unreadable.
It’s therapy for the Hillary anti-Trumpers. That’s why I believe sales are happening and why people are tuning in to see Trump bashing and promises of impeachment around the corner on their MSNBC?CNN shows.
