Via The Right Scoop:
As an aside, Levin's new book -- the followup to the bestselling Liberty and Tyranny -- promises to be a doozy.
My guess is that The New York Times will repeat its cowardly performance -- refusing to review the book no matter how many million of copies it sells. Because conservatism's logic, its principles, its philosophical foundations and its historical bases are no more assailable by progressives than Everest can be scaled by a gerbil.
I think its more like a warning to any writer in search of a publisher. Don't promote conservative ideals or you will be out of the loop. Sure, you can be published, but you're not going to be nearly as heavily promoted or favorably reviewed (if at all) as you will be if you tow the line of liberal orthodoxy. It's the same in Hollywood and to an extent even in the music business.
You can be conservative. Just kindly keep your mouth shut about it, or else.
