The New York Times has refused to put Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on their bestseller list after finding evidence that his book sales were not authentic.
Murphy later added more detail, “In the case of this book, the overwhelming preponderance of evidence was that sales were limited to strategic bulk purchases.”
Strategic bulk purchases is a polite way of saying that Cruz, his super PAC, or organization that he cut a deal with, bought the books in bulk to inflate his sales numbers and land him on the bestseller list.
Well, that's one way to land yourself on the Best Seller's List. Buy all the books up yourself. Would you buy a used car from this guy? I wouldn't, but he can sell it to himself if he wants to. LOL.
