The DrudgeReport broke the story this morning. The New York Times confirmed the report later today.
“This is a real triumph for Michael Savage, for talk radio and for the power of the Internet,” said Joseph Farah, editor of WorldNetDaily and co-founder of WND Books, the first publishing imprint launched by an Internet content site.
The book is No. 1 on the non-fiction list at Amazon.com and No. 3 overall. The book continues to climb other best-seller charts – rising to No. 3 on UPI’s list. ”The Savage Nation” is also near the top of the best-sellers lists of the Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, AP, Barnes and Noble and many others.
”The Savage Nation” is the second release of WND Books, a new publishing imprint created by WorldNetDaily and Thomas Nelson Publishers.
The book has been rushed into a second printing after only a week after its official release.
”To say that this book is a publishing sensation is an understatement,” said Farah. ”There’s no telling where this book will go. It’s hitting a chord. Michael Savage is resonating across the nation.”
”The Savage Nation” is the story of one man’s love affair with the United States.
”I would do anything to protect the freedoms I enjoy: Freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom of assembly, and freedom from fear,” says Savage.
Savage takes a refreshingly honest look at what he sees as an erosion of these freedoms, taking aim not just at the government but forces within our society and so-called ”civil-liberty groups,” which he says continue to attack each of these freedoms, in the name of freedom. At the same time, he believes a growing international government, the United Nations, continually attempts to override these freedoms.
Autographed copies of the book are available exclusively at the WorldNetDaily online store, ShopNetDaily.
As liberals try to figure out how to reach talk-radio listeners, Savage explains that it is all in the message.
”Liberals supporting the same tax and spend policies and continuously assaulting our American culture and values is not what the American people want to hear,” he says. ”We must uphold our patriotism, strong families and traditional American values,” writes Savage. ”This book has the power to unravel years of liberal brainwashing.”
Michael Savage’s unparalleled passion for the ”land of the free and the home of the brave” can be heard daily on more than 300 radio stations nationwide. His unmistakable style has earned him 6 million listeners a week and made him the No. 1 afternoon drive-time host on KSFO in the San Francisco Bay Area. He’s also heard in other major markets including New York on WABC and in Boston on WRKO and was just added to Baltimore’s WCBM-AM.
