Bill O’Reilly’s dirty tricks

Matt Drudge, certainly no friend to Hillary, challenges Bill O’Reilly’s claims that his book’s sales compete with the former First Lady’s:

FOXNEWS’s top-rated host Bill O’Reilly recently claimed that he is “running against Hillary for most copies of nonfiction books sold this year!”

But numbers obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT show a dramatically different sales scene for 2003 than O’Reilly’s TODAY show comments.

NIELSEN’s BOOKSCAN placed O’Reilly at #6 for the year on the nonfiction charts, trailing rival Al Franken by nearly 30%!

Hillary Clinton’s Living History is #3. Drudge even puts up an elaborate chart showing just how dubious O’Reilly’s claims are. Anyone surprised?

The Discussion: One Comment

Not really – Drudge isn’t dumb, and he knows that to make noise he needs to attack the powers that be.
