Back then the Time's best sellers list may have been a good ranking of best sellers, but it has not been recently...They've taken to ignoring best selling books that don't jibe with their political leanings...
Fair and accurate news reporting is hard to come by. They all lean hard in some direction, and don't do the leg work of confirming their sources information...As soon as one finds some juicy 'hear say' BS they all 're-tweet it' over their news feeds as fact, like trained parrots. Disgraceful.
