Accuracy in Media

From Regnery Publishing’s press release:

Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer(released January 24, 2017), the new blockbuster exposé by filmmakers and investigative journalists Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, sold out of Amazon and Barnes & Noble in 3 days and outsold all but 3 nonfiction hardcover titles—but the New York Times refused to include Gosnell on their nonfiction “Print Hardcover Best Sellers” list.

While Gosnell landed on the “Combined Print & E-Book Best Sellers” list (at #13), the Times ignored the real sales numbers and refused to correctly list Gosnell as the 4th bestselling nonfiction title.

When Gosnell released on January 24, it launched to #3 on Amazon’s best seller list of all books and was the #1 Hot New Release.

This was all without any mainstream media attention—no reviews, no features, no author interviews. Gosnell’s meteoric success, and the New York Times’ denial of such success, is proof that the mainstream media has lost touch with the values of the American people—yet another extension of the “Trump Effect.” It is the media’s duty to report the facts, the whole truth…not merely the facts that align with their own biased agenda.

Ironically, it was not until the American people shamed the mainstream media into covering Kermit Gosnell’s trial that the story received any media coverage—the media ignored Gosnell then, and they are ignoring Gosnellnow.

Ann McElhinney, co-author of Gosnell, states, “This is shocking that the cover-up of the Gosnell story is continuing even after the mainstream media were so criticized for failing to cover the trial.
It’s clear that this is a blatant fake list in a fake news newspaper. It’s not only an insult to the people who have bought this book, but an insult to the readers of the New York Times who buy the newspaper and think they are getting the truth about book sales across America but instead get false facts disguised as a neutral list.”

The New York Times has been consistently accused of excluding conservative books that have plainly sold more than books that appear on their best sellers list.

McElhinney rightly adds, “The media doesn’t want this story to see the light of day because it shines a negative light on abortion.”

While the New York Times and every other mainstream media outlet continue to ignore Gosnell, the sales numbers clearly prove that the American people want to know the truth. The story of Kermit Gosnell will be heard—regardless of media bias.
