The new book intended to smear Justice Brett Kavanaugh certainly got plenty of promotion by the New York Times. Unfortunately for the authors, that publicity backfired, and the proof is in the book’s dismal opening sales numbers.

Paul Bedard reports at the Washington Examiner:

New York Times Kavanaugh book bombs, just 3,120 sold, Amazon rank #6,795

The latest book on Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a critical biography from two New York Times reporters that made new sexual assault charges that were immediately undermined, has suffered an epic sales crash, according to publishing insiders.

Expected to sell at least 10,000-12,000 in the first two weeks and propel The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation onto the newspaper’s bestseller hardcover list, it has sold about a third of that in the first two weeks.

A publishing source provided the latest BookScan numbers, which can account for about 80% of sales. That number is 3,120. “If you add in ebooks — they may have sold a total of 4,000. That’s one of the most epic bombs in political publishing over the past decade,” said the source.

By comparison, another Kavanaugh book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, which details the Democratic war on the Trump nominee, has sold 60,000 books and a total of 100,000 copies since its July 9 debut. It was written by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino and published by Regnery.

The book was so obviously meant to fuel Democrat efforts to impeach and remove Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court, but no one is buying it. What a shame.

Many people used this opportunity to praise Mollie Hemingway’s successful book.
