Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz will not see his book "A Time For Truth" on The New York Times bestseller list. Even though the book sold 11,854 copies in its first week, ranking higher than 18 of the 20 books on the latest list, the Times told Cruz's publisher HarperCollins that his book "didn't meet that standard" to get recognized. The Times, which previously blocked Dinesh D'Souza's bestseller "America" from getting on the list, later told Politico that they found evidence that "sales [for Cruz's book] were limited to strategic bulk purchases."
If the Republican candidates in the 2016 race were smarter, they would ban a number of liberal Washington-based reporters from any of their campaign events, just like Hillary Clinton did to my former editor David Martosko.

The liberal Washington-based publication Vox is currently looking for a new "Race and Identity Editor" to "lead a team of writers focused on gender, sexuality, race, and criminal justice," according to the job posting.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gained a bunch of Internet praise over Fourth of July weekend because she wrote a comment on a photo of a gay kid and told him that his life is going to be "amazing." Unfortunately, her comment was completely stupid and irresponsible because his life is probably not going to be amazing - and not because he's gay.
The Hillary Clinton campaign's "Dinner With Hillary" contest has slightly different fine print than past Clinton campaign contests. The rules have been altered so as not to explicitly exclude illegal immigrants from entering.
