Booming sales for Woodward’s ‘Fear,’ Trump presidency book

Friday, 14 Sep, 2018

The President has said the book is "fiction".

The Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 61 percent of voters think the administration is chaotic, while 32 percent believe it is running well. Some former White House officials who spoke with Woodward have tried to distance themselves from the book.

"If that individual is in meetings where national security is being discussed, or other important topics, and they are attempting to undermine the executive branch, that would certainly be problematic and something that the Department of Justice should look into", Sanders said in her first briefing since the editorial was published last week.

Simon & Schuster, the publishing company behind journalist Bob Woodard's upcoming book, "Fear: Trump in the White House", is printing one million copies of the White House tell-all to keep up with demand, according to a CNN Money report. Trump himself and several leading Trump staffers quoted in Fear have trashed the legendary reporter's account, but their denials have only added to the image of infighting and lies presented in the book.

The Late Show is an hour-long show, and 20 of those minutes went to Woodward and Colbert talking about the book, its contents, and even a few historical references. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

"One key person who's in office called me and said, "Everyone knows what you said here is true". The magazine goes on to say that Cohn was "astounded" by "the depths of the president's stupidity". I'm also reading about democracy and truth and identity and immigration and protest and so much more - and these are all ways about exploring the Trump era without having to focus on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "Woodward would have performed rudimentary journalistic fact checking with those he was quoting, he would have had a more accurate book rather than just being a stenographer for Mr. Bannon's self-aggrandizing revisionist history". He said "these are political statements to protect their jobs".

While he does not name his sources, Woodward says he spoke with many people now or formerly working for Trump as he researched the book, discussing not just the president's personality but also major policy debates regarding North Korea and Afghanistan. As with "Fire and Fury" and other anti-Trump books, the president has condemned "Fear" as false.

Woodward has consistently said he stands behind his reporting on Trump's actions.
