Simon & Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book after “witnessing disturbing deadly insurgency” – Deadline

Publisher Simon & Schuster said Thursday it will no longer publish Senator Josh Hawlye’s next book The Tyranny of Big Tech after “witnessing the disturbing and deadly insurgency that took place in Washington, DC yesterday. “

“As publisher, our mission will always be to amplify a variety of voices and viewpoints: at the same time, we take our broader public responsibility seriously and cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in this. which has become a dangerous threat to our democracy and our freedom. Said the publisher, which is being sold by ViacomCBS to Penguin Random House.

The senator from Missouri, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, was among the most aggressive in opposing the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral victory in college. He apparently sent a fundraising appeal yesterday at the height of the siege on Capitol Hill by Trump supporters, pushed by the president, where a woman was killed. His hometown newspaper, The Kansas City Star, said in an op-ed that Hawley “has blood on his hands.”

Hawley was one of the few senators to oppose Biden’s victory in Georgia and Pennsylvania, as the traumatic events of the day convinced a number of his colleagues to back down.

His book (which will probably still be published elsewhere) was due out in June.

Simon & Schuster recently released Too Much and Never Enough by Mary Trump, as well as Rage by Bob Woodward and The Room Where It Happened by John Bolton. He has also published books by Roger Stone, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.

The book’s blurb, which is still on the publisher’s website, states that Hawley “maintains that the big tech companies – Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Apple – pose the greatest threat to American freedom since the monopolies of the golden age and offers a democratic and hopeful path. forward.”
