    ..is this diary written to sell books or to legitimately discuss censorship?  I suspect its viral marketing...every so often I've noticed posts by this diarist...and they ALWAYS mention his book.  

    I for one don't have the time to be marketed to like this.  

    David: please be clear on your posts about why you are writing:  marketing, or actual political discussion.

      I think it's a very good discussion of how the gatekeepers (in this case, the NYT and WP) are falling all over themselves with contradictory spin in order to try and keep people from buying both his book and books like Crashing the Gates, Lapdogs, etc.

      The NYT claims that his book attacks mostly Democrats, whereas the WP claims it's a Democratic Party "apologia" tract.  Both these claims are wrong, but both are made because it is life and death to both the NYT and WP that this book -- along with Crashing the Gates, etc. -- be kept out of the hands of Joe and Jane Average.

      there's no difference.

      political discussion IS marketing.
