The deal that backfired…

Three weeks ago, I wrote a post about major publisher Simon & Schuster offering a lucrative book deal to a certain far-right personality. Basically, Simon & Schuster were trying to make money out of some very dark political developments.

Well, it seems the deal has backfired so spectacularly (after further comments from the aforementioned figure) that they’ve decided to revoke it:

One hopes they’ve learned their lesson here.
