Cruz Campaign: New York Times is Lying About Bulk Book Sales

Ted Cruz's presidential campaign says The New York Times' claim that his book's sales were driven by "strategic bulk purchases" is a lie, and has called on the paper to release its evidence or formally apologize for keeping him off its bestsellers' list.
An On Media blog post reported about the Times' decision to exclude Cruz's new biography from its bestsellers list, despite the fact that the book sold more copies in its first week than all but two of the other bestselling titles. Cruz campaign spokesperson Rick Tyler said in a statement, "The Times is presumably embarrassed by having their obvious partisan bias called out. But their response—alleging ‘strategic bulk purchases’—is a blatant falsehood."
