It actually takes two writers -- Susan Jones and Greg Gwyn-Williams -- to crank out a painfully fluffy Jan. 24 CNSNews.com article carrying the headline "1,500 ‘Very Pleasant’ People Wait in Snow for Mark Levin Book-Signing." And yes, the article is really all about how nice the people waiting in line for a Levin book-signing are.
The article is illustrated with pictures taken from Levin's website, so one has to wonder if Levin paid for this press release-esque placement.
This was followed by a blog post by Craig Bannister touting how Levin leads a group of three right-wing writers topping "the Barnes & Noble adult, nonfiction, hardcover bestseller list." That's right -- Bannister has to wander all the way over to B&N to find a bestseller list that conformed to his ideology.
This, in turn, was followed by a Jan. 26 article by Susan Jones declaring that Levin's book will debut at number one on the New York Times Best Seller list--in four different nonfiction categories."
All of this comes in the wake of CNS editor Terry Jeffrey's fawning interview of Levin last week.
