Fox News host Pete Hegseth crushes Jen Psaki in book sales despite being released weeks later

A Fox news host has crushed Jen Psaki in book sales despite the former White House press secretary’s book coming out weeks before his.

Pete Hegseth’s book ‘The War on Warriors: Behind the Betrayal of the Men who Keep us Free’ has sold 60,000 copies since it was released on June 4.

By comparison, ex-Biden spokeswoman Psaki’s ‘Say More’ which was released May 6 has sold less than 22,000 total copies to date according to Bookscan.

Her MSNBC colleague Joy Reid’s ‘Medgar and Myrlie’ has sold 28,469 copies since being published in early February.

And Hegseth has also hammered CNN host Jake Tapper’s ‘All The Demons Are Here’, which has sold just 15,427 copies in the 11 months it has been on sale.  

Hegseth’s debut went to number one on the New York Times bestseller’s list, his fourth time making an appearance on the weekly rankings.

It comes despite research by the Economist which suggests the newspaper’s iconic bestsellers list is less likely to include works by conservative authors, even if they sell the same amount of copies as other works.
