Two weeks ago, The New York Times got throttled over its B.S. excuse for leaving Ted Cruz’s book off their bestseller list. The following week, the Times reluctantly walked it back, granting Cruz the number seven spot.

But it looks like the fishwrap’s goodwill was short-lived:

From The Weekly Standard:

The latest New York Times bestseller list has Ted Cruz’s A Time for Truth at number 8. Just above him is former President Jimmy Carter’s A Full Life, coming in at 7.

The strange thing, however, is that Cruz sold almost 60 percent more copies of his book last week than Carter.

According to Bookscan, which tracks the number of books sold, Cruz sold 8,814 last week. Carter sold only 5,147.

You mean to say the Times appears to be doing something dishonest? Color us shocked!
