People Are Still Buying Bill O’Reilly’s Books

By Chris Ariens Comment

Despite the personal mess he finds himself in this week, Bill O’Reilly is still one of America’s best-selling authors.

His seventh Killing book Killing England has been No. 1 on the New York Times Best Sellers Hardcover Nonfiction list four weeks in a row.

Making the list, and remaining there, is even more of a feat when you consider O’Reilly hasn’t had his powerful platform of a TV show in which he would hawk his books to an audience of more than 4 million a night.

Also remaining on the NYT list this week is MSNBC anchor Katy Tur, who is celebrating a birthday today and is getting married (to CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil) this weekend.

Tur’s Unbelievable, now in its fifth week on the list, is No. 7 this week.

Update: While O’Reilly’s books are selling, his literary agency WME is dropping him. Earlier this week, O’Reilly’s longtime talent agency, N.S. Bienstock, now owned by UTA, announced it is no longer representing him.
