Right-wingers afeared of lefty media
Bottom-feeder Matt Drudge posted a disparaging item about the sales figures of Markos Moulitsas' and Jerome Armstrong's Crashing the Gate to illustrate the supposedly downtrodden state of progressive media.
Kos smacks him down here, pointing out that nobody's fooled by this blatant attempt to turn the debate away from the disaster in Iraq, an impotent administration and a terrified Republican party. And besides, Drudge's numbers were off by about 300%. Which is to be expected from a hack like him.
In fact, after just three weeks on the market "CTG is ranked #25 on Amazon.com, and is ranked #5 in the politics category."
Meanwhile, progressive blogger Glenn Greenwald's unreleased How Would a Patriot Act? hit number 1 on Amazon last night.
Drudge and his book? Well... People in right-wing houses really shouldn't throw stones (note the figure in red below):
