So, our Matt is busily writing a new book, The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama. I sat this one out – all credit to Matt for being willing to dive into that sewer a second time around. Anyways, the book is to be released on April 3rd and so, naturally, Matt starts to push the book on social media. Turns out, some people at Facebook didn’t like what Matt did:
Bestselling conservative author Matt Margolis has a new book coming out that is already banned on Facebook. Margolis’s first book, The Worst President in History, which detailed the failures of the Obama administration, was an instant hit last fall. Margolis used social media to market his presidential biography to #1 on Amazon. When he tried to market his latest, The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama, he was banned from Facebook groups for six days with no explanation.
Slight correction, of course: Worst was Matt’s second book. But, no matter. Matt has received no explanation from Facebook for the banning – my thinking was that some blue-haired, nose-pierced little SJW fascist just decided to be a jerk. But here’s the kicker: the banning made pre-orders of Matt’s book shoot through the roof, while sales of our Worst also skyrocketed for a day.
So, Facebook Fascists, Matt and I would like to offer our thanks for fattening our bank accounts.
