Media Blackout on Vincent Bugliosi?

Speaking of books...

A Canadian investor wants to support the film version of Vincent Bugliosi's controversial book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, which has now reached the New York Times Bestseller List, although the newspaper has not reviewed it.

From The Winsor Star:

...it has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media in the U.S., said
Peter Miller, Bugliosi's literary manager.

"We were blacklisted from the media for about six weeks," said Miller.

"We didn't have one blurb or quote on this book, nor did we have one review. It's extremely unusual, particularly in regard to someone of Mr. Bugliosi's calibre."

"So he's not a left-wing nut -- he's arguably the most famous prosecutor in America with the greatest track record."

Bugliosi's publicists "had arranged originally for Vanity Fair to do a story on this, and Vanity Fair dropped out," said Miller. "Then Newsweek was going to do an essay, and at the last minute they dropped out. The New York Times has not reviewed this book -- there's an obvious blacklisting because Vince is a force in publishing."

Thanks in part to liberal bloggers, this book was able to take off.

Ever think that those media titles might be ATTRACTED to a book that made a coherent argument about how Bush should be indicted?

Only to back out after reading the book and discovering that it's virtually incomprehensible?

Nice that the blogosphere picked it up, but we all know their standards aren't as high.
