Senator Josh Hawley’s book has found a new publisher after he was dumped by the leftists who run Simon & Schuster:
NY TIMES – Regnery Publishing, a conservative publishing house, said Monday that it had picked up a book by Senator Josh Hawley, Republican of Missouri, after Simon & Schuster ended its contract to publish it in the wake of the assault on the Capitol.
Mr. Hawley had come under criticism for challenging the results of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory and was accused of helping incite the mob that stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. His book, “The Tyranny of Big Tech,” is scheduled to be published this spring, Regnery said.
Thomas Spence, the president and publisher of Regnery, said in a statement that the publishing house was proud to stand with Mr. Hawley. “The warning in his book about censorship obviously couldn’t be more urgent,” Mr. Spence said. His company’s statement said that Simon & Schuster had made Mr. Hawley a victim of cancel culture.
Most major publishers, including Simon & Schuster, one of the “Big Five” book publishers in the United States, publish books across the political spectrum. But Simon & Schuster said it called off its plan to publish Mr. Hawley’s book after the Capitol attack.
Kudos to Regnery Publish for standing up for Hawley when others wouldn’t. I guess it’s good we have so-called ‘conservative’ book publishers. We already have to have a conservative hosting provider – what’s next?
I would love if someone would create a conservative ad publisher to compete with Google Adsense, for the day when Google ends up kicking me and other sites off their big ad network. That day is probably a lot closer than we think…
