from Facebook: is the New York Times bestseller list rigged?

    There’s a fair bit of money involved. Of course it’s rigged. Mark Driscoll’s Real Marriage cost $200,000 to put at #1 for a week.

    But in the example you link to, the money was paid to a company to make it LOOK LIKE the required number of books were sold to make it on the list. They didn’t bribe the Times, they just fooled them.

    What the article is asking is why the Times would leave off a book that legitimately sold 20K copies, beating out other lower-selling titles that DID make it on the list.
