Bulk Sales and Tucker Carlson’s New ‘Book’

Over at Mediaite, they’re taunting Tucker Carlson about selling just over 3,000 copies of his most recent book. This is good! One should never pass up an opportunity to mock that asshole. While the article chalks the poor sales up to Carlson’s absence from Fox News (and it obviously must play a role), but there’s something else going on.

When conservatives in good standing publish books, conservative institutions, such as think tanks, buy a ton of copies (and give them away) to juice sales numbers. Right now, I don’t think Carlson is in particularly good standing, and so no rich foundation, think tank, or billionaire is buying a bunch of his books.

Essentially, Carlson is competing in the market, and he is losing.

Womp womp, motherfucker.
