A biography of Tucker Carlson bought simply 3,000 copies so the e-book’s writer has filed a grievance in opposition to Amazon alleging that the retailer interfered with e-book gross sales.
- Itemizing the e-book as “bought out” however then failing to report these “gross sales” to Bookscan;
- E-mailing preorder prospects to ask in the event that they wished to cancel their orders, then requiring them to go on a desktop pc, quite than a cell app or web site, to proactively affirm they nonetheless wished the e-book or face automated cancellation;
- Fulfilling orders acquired after launch earlier than prospects who pre-ordered the e-book.
It may very well be an enormous conspiracy by Amazon to undermine their earnings by interfering with e-book gross sales, or it may very well be that since Carlson is not on Fox Information, he not has a large nationwide platform. The Murdochs are right that the community is greater than any of the expertise.
Why would Amazon, an organization that sells merchandise, undercut its earnings by discouraging individuals from shopping for Carlson’s e-book? Amazon sells a lot of conservative books, so it’s extra probably that Carlson’s e-book solely bought 3,000 copies as a result of the world wasn’t within the life story of a born rich inheritor whose solely main accomplishment is getting fired from each US cable community.
However certain, it’s a conspiracy, not the truth that Tucker Calson’s moment has come and gone.
