Last year, Limbaugh published his first children’s book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans. The book instantly landed on best seller lists across the industry. This year, Limbaugh published his second book, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, and it, too, quickly hit the top selling list, appearing as number five on The New York Times bestsellers list for the week of March 23.
Consequently, along with three other authors, Limbaugh’s momentous book sales landed him in the CBC’s Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards author of the year contest.
Liberals cried foul, demanding that the CBC remove Limbaugh from the contest. The book group, however, is refusing to bow to demands to excise Limbaugh from its list of popular authors.
In a public letter about the controversy, CBC notes that it has used the exact same criteria for picking the top children’s authors for years, and Limbaugh legitimately fit into that scheme.
“The Author of the Year and Illustrator of the Year finalists are determined solely based on titles’ performances on the bestseller
lists–all titles in those categories are listed as a result of this protocol,” the group said.
