WASHINGTON, DC – The liberal New York Times has once again reminded us why they can’t be trusted to be fair and impartial as they propagate Jane Mayer’s new hit piece book on the Koch Brothers, titled Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right. Not only did they place it at No. 2 on their NYT Nonfiction Best Sellers List this week, they gave it a blushing review for a “nonpartisan” author who also happens to write for the “nonpartisan” The New Yorker.
Even though the mere title of the book suggests a bias, the NYT book reviewer calls Meyer’s work a “straightforward and largely unemotional prose,” even though the book attacks the integrity of the Koch family. Her thesis is that somehow supporting 501(c)4 organizations – a legally recognized nonprofit organization allowed to participate in political activity, is somehow antithetical to the American democratic process.
At one point, the author even tries to make the case that the Koch Brothers’ belief in free market principles and scholars like Friedrich Hayek – the author of the pro-freedom treatise The Road to Serfdom, is somehow the nefarious basis for their “schemes” to promote anti-democratic ideas like individual freedom and less intrusive government.
“Never mind that George Soros, the Hollywood elite, Tom Steyer, and the Democracy Alliance raises billions for liberal causes, there of course is no double standard here whatsoever,” said Christopher Malagisi, Editor in Chief of the Conservative Book Club. “Its books like these that are the reasons why a Conservative Book Club exists to set the record straight, and why we offer a Conservative Bestseller List.”
