Glenn's new book, 'Dark Future: Uncovering the Great Reset's Terrifying Next Phase' remains strong on the New York Times Bestseller List a month after its publication... but should it be ranked higher?
Currently, 'Dark Future' is ranked No.13. on the New York Times Bestselling Non-Fiction list. However, if the list were determined by raw sales alone, 'Dark Future' would have been ranked number SEVEN on the list. Moreover, while Greg Gutfeld's new book, 'The King of Late Night,' has fewer sales than 'Dark Future,' it continues to outrank 'Dark Future,' in the No. 5 slot.
And things get even fishier.
The current New York Times Bestselling nonfiction list excludes several books that outperform the top rankers on the list. For example, Granger Smith's faith-based nonfiction book, 'Like a River,' is excluded from the list, even though it has received nearly TWICE as many sales as the list's No. 1 spot, 'Outlive' by Dr. Peter Attia. Moreover, Chadwick Moore's new biography of Tucker Carlson, which he recently discussed on the Glenn Beck Program, is also excluded from the list, even though it would have outranked Gutfield's 'The King of Late Night' as well.
Several books are excluded that outperform the top rankers on the list.
Could the New York Timespurposefully be excluding and de-ranking books that don't fit their political agenda? This wouldn't be the first time the New York Times has been accused of "cooking the books."
Legendary author James Patterson, who holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, recently criticized the list as "inaccurate." Patterson recounted how his recently published book, 'Walk The Blue Line,' which recounted real-life stories of law enforcement officers, wasn't even on the New York Times Bestseller List for the first week after publication, despite its sales outperforming its competitors. Once it was on the list, it continued to rank below books it had significantly outperformed.
This wouldn't be the first time that the New York Times has been accused of "cooking the books."
Patterson took to Twitter (now called X), to post his Letter to the Editor after the New York Times refused to publish it, calling out the double standard in their ranking system.
In response, the Times responded:
Our bestsellers lists are based on detailed analysis of book sales from a wide range of retailers, tens of thousands of brick-and-mortar stores of all sizes, and numerous online book-selling vendors to best represent what is selling across the United States.
However, Patterson hit the nail on the head: "If you don't base it on raw sales, you base it on cooked sales."
Is 'Dark Future,' and the other aforementioned books suffering from the same double standard that Patterson described? The raw sale numbers certainly indicate so. However, the fact that 'Dark Future' continues to rank on the list is a testimony to the book's success and the power of its scathing message against the world's elites.
