The New York Times rejected running a full-page paid advertisement for a best-selling book that was written by the nephew of President John F. Kennedy on Dr. Anthony Fauci.
An ad by the publisher of the best-selling book, “The Real Anthony Fauci” was considered by the left-wing newspaper to contain “misinformation” and was not allowed to run. The book by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the son of the late U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, currently sits in the top 10 of Amazon best-sellers and has been a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Publishers Weekly national best-seller.
Despite its success, Tony Lyons, the president of Skyhorse Publishing, spoke about how The Times rejected his company’s ad, telling Steve Bannon how “anything is misinformation if it contradicts” the left’s narrative.
“So I’m the publisher of ‘The Real Anthony Fauci’ by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. I tried to place an ad with The New York Times. A full-page ad for the book,” Lyons said on “The War Room” on Monday.
“And they came back to me and said that their standards management people had determined that they could not place the ad because it included ‘misinformation,'” Lyons continued.
“So, what we started seeing more and more is that anything is misinformation if it contradicts the narrative of The New York Times,” he told Bannon.
He explained that the paper objected to the blurb in the center of the advertisement which quoted a Nobel Prize-winning scientist’s claim that Fauci had “lied multiple times.” The publisher said the decision was made to remove the part of the ad that The Times considered “misinformation,” even though Lyons said they countered the objection with examples of Fauci’s untruths, just to be able to run the ad in the newspaper.
But, Lyons recounted, the left-wing paper informed the publisher that “they would not run any ad whatsoever, that their standards management people had decided that the idea of the book itself…was misinformation.”
“So you’re seeing that there’s just such incredible censorship coming from the most respected newspaper in the country. So if it comes from there, it comes from everyone,” Lyons said. “And you cannot tell the stories that contradict Dr. Fauci’s narrative.”
