Move over Howard Stern, Mark Levin has just usurped you as the No. 1 best-selling book author on Amazon. The conservative radio and TV host’s “Unfreedom of the Press” has taken the top position on the Amazon tally based on the strength of pre-order sales alone – the book doesn’t hit store shelves until today (May 21).
Levin, whose radio show is syndicated by Westwood One, also hosts a Sunday TV program on Fox News and recently partnered with Glenn Beck’s online platform The Blaze to form Blaze Media.
Levin and SiriusXM’s Stern are joined among Amazon’s top five by the Dr. Seuss graduation classic “Oh the Places You’ll Go” and the complete books in George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire.”
As the book title suggests, Levin skewers the modern day press in his new hardcover. According to a description, “Unfreedom Of The Press” is a “groundbreaking and enlightening book that shows how the great tradition of the American free press has degenerated into a standard less profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American public, not through actions of government officials, but through its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism.”
Levin, who was inducted into the 2018 class of the National Radio Hall of Fame, “frequently uses his platform to skewer liberals and Democrats,” The Wrap notes. Last month Levin scored a pre-taped interview with President Trump that covered voting rights for prisoners, the Democratic hopefuls for president and the Mueller Report.
