What if they are both wrong?
Remember when I said I was going to leave politics to my personal site? Yeah, I lied.
After witnessing the disturbing, deadly insurrection that took place on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Simon & Schuster has decided to cancel publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s forthing book, THE TYRANNY OF BIG TECH. ?We did not e to this decision lightly.?As a publisher it will always be our mission to amplify a variety of voices and viewpoints: at the same time we take seriously our larger public responsibility as citizens, and cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.
And the Senator responds:
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) January 7, 2021
What if they are both wrong? I think S&S, whose books I enjoy, should publish the book.? I think the last sentence above makes little sense.? Either you are open to a variety of voices or you are not.? Publishing the book of a politician doesn’t mean you support their election or their views.? I am not a fan of Hawley or his recent actions but canceling his contract will just make him a martyr to certain people and allow him to sell more books at Regnery or someplace like it.
