  • Cancelers canceled at Simon & Schuster: A small sign that cancel culture may have peaked, at least in book publishing, is worth noting

    A small sign that cancel culture may have peaked, at least in book publishing, is worth noting. The president of Simon & Schuster, Jonathan Karp, has announced that his firm will ignore a petition from its staff (reportedly, 216 employees and thousands of sympathizers) demanding that plans to publish an autobiographical memoir by former V.P. Mike Pence be canceled.Thomas Lipscomb, a publishing industry veteran, takes note and celebrates the act of courage in the Asia Times:[T]he internal petition being circulated by Simon & Schuster employees is far more extensive. It is demanding categorical censorship irrespective of any underlying editorial merit....

    The natives remain restless.

  • CEO of Publishing Company That Canceled Hawley Book Is a Dem Donor

    Rule of thumb: Always be skeptical of a company that tries to act woke, especially when CNN blowhard Brian Stelter is pushing it. Publishing company Simon & Schuster tried to do just that by canceling publication of Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s upcoming book “The Tyranny of Big Tech.” The firm arbitrarily pinned blame on him for the Capitol Hill riots. The company wrote in a statement on Twitter: “[W]e take seriously our larger public responsibility as citizens, and cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.” But, there may...

    A planned book by Sen. Josh Hawley, who objected to President-elect Joe Biden’s win and backed baseless claims that the election was stolen, has been canceled by its publisher in the wake of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by a mob of pro-Trump supporters, a decision the Missouri Republican called “Orwellian” and vowed to fight in court. In a statement Thursday, Simon & Schuster announced that “After witnessing the disturbing, deadly insurrection that took place on Wednesday in Washington, D.C, Simon & Schuster has decided to cancel publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s forthcoming book, ‘The Tyranny of Big Tech.’...

    A New York appeals court judge on Wednesday gave the go ahead for Simon & Schuster to publish a controversial new book written by President Trump’s niece. Judge Alan D. Scheinkman reversed a lower court’s decision from Tuesday that had temporarily blocked Mary Trump’s tell-all memoir — “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” — which is set to be released July 28. In his decision, the appeals court judge ruled that Simon & Schuster wasn’t bound by a nondisclosure agreement the author signed as part of a dispute over the 1999 will...

    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...

    Simon & Schuster’s decision to publish a book by Breitbart News’ Milo Yiannopoulos appears to be paying off with retailer Amazon despite calls from liberal celebrities for a boycott. Mr. Yiannopoulos announced Thursday that he was given a $250,000 contract by publishing giant Simon & Schuster. His pronouncement that irate critics only fuel his fame did not dissuade Hollywood entertainers like Sarah Silverman and Judd Apatow from joining calls for a boycott. “Dangerous” shot to the No. 1 slot on the U.S. Amazon Best Seller list less than 24 hours later. “In response to this disgusting validation of hate, we...

    Vote of Confidence A huge black turnout in November 1992 altered Chicago's electoral landscape—and raised a new political star: a 31-year-old lawyer named Barack Obama. By Gretchen Reynolds A huge black turnout in November 1992 altered Chicago's electoral landscape-and raised a new political star: a 31-year-old lawyer named Barack Obama. In the final, climactic buildup to November's general election, with George Bush gaining ground on Bill Clinton in Illinois and the once-unstoppable campaign of senatorial candidate Carol Moseley Braun embroiled in allegations about her mother's Medicare liability, one of the most important local stories managed to go virtually unreported: The...

    -snip- McCain made his first million the old-fashioned way: he married the daughter of a wealthy businessman. But Barack Obama, the son of an absent African father and a mother who relied on government-issued food stamps to feed her children, became a millionaire in a more modern manner – on the back of a book deal. It happened circuitously. In 1990, Obama was already enough of a celebrity – the first black president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review – for the New York publishers Simon & Schuster to offer a “six-figure contract” for a proposed autobiography. The only problem...

    Later this month the book "Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope" will be published by Simon & Schuster. Nikki Grimes, a children's author and poet, wrote enthusiastically on her website that a book usually takes her 3-6 months to write, but in this case she "miraculously" finished it in just two weeks. It is full of rhyming verses, descriptions of the exotic countries that little Obama visited, and conversation "Barry" the kid holds with hope. Even God himself talks to Barry while he's in church on Sunday, telling him: "Look around you. Now look to me. There is...

    NEW YORK -- It takes an anniversary, and a lot of sales, to inspire a new edition. Hillary Rodham Clinton's "It Takes a Village" is being reissued in December, with a new foreword by the senator, to mark the book's 10th year since publication. "When we published `It Takes a Village' 10 years ago, Hillary Rodham Clinton brought to the fore her long-standing concerns about how public policy affects our children — in ways both large and small," Carolyn Reidy, president of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement released Tuesday. "Though new readers continually discover this influential and important...

    In the past, the experiences of war have produced poetry and novels and memoirs. The War on Terror is different: we're seeing through a new set of eyes, a new kind of literature. In real time, on the Internet, officers and enlisted men and women are chronicling the war on weblogs. As the number of blogs continue to rise dramatically, blogging’s advent – the effect of which has been likened to that of the printing press on the Reformation - is giving the world the opportunity to experience the world’s latest war – the War on Terror – first hand....

    It is the ultimate Washington story, told by the ultimate Washington chronicler. But in Washington and just about everywhere else, sales of "The Secret Man," Bob Woodward's story of the source known as Deep Throat, have been underwhelming. At Politics and Prose, a well-known independent bookstore in Washington, sales were "not very good, compared to expectations," said Mark LaFramboise, who ordered 400 copies of the book for the store. As of last week, Politics and Prose had sold "60-something," he said. "I expected it to be a blockbuster," he said. "I was wrong." At Prairie Lights Books in Iowa City,...

    Did Simon and Schuster violate the law by passing tapes that President Bush didn't consent to having taped. It may have been legal for Wead to tape, but if the person being taped doesn't know it can the be broadcast to the public legally? I think Simon and Schuster paid Hitlary her $8 million and Bill's book too. Did O'Neil and Wilson's book too I think. Wead is scumbag, he had to know that Simon & Schuster has been out for his "friend".
  • RESEARCHER ALLEGES POTENTIAL PLAGIARISM IN 11 PASSAGES OF KERRY'S WRITINGS

    NYSUN.COM ^ | OCTOBER 26, 2004 | JOSH GERSTEIN
    An academic researcher has found 11 passages in Senator Kerry's published writings that appear to have been taken from other works without attribution, though experts disagree about whether the copying should be considered plagiarism. Six of the passages come from Mr. Kerry's 1997 book, "The New War: The Web of Crime That Threatens America's National Security." All bear some similarity to news accounts that preceded publication of the book. In one instance, Mr. Kerry wrote, "Russian mobsters have been arrested in Germany for extortion, car theft, counterfeiting, prostitution, selling drugs and illegal weapons, and smuggling everything from icons to uranium."...
