NEW YORK (AP) – A publishing division launched by conservative media company Daily Wire will include posts from Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro, former “Mandalorian” actor Gina Carano, and a book by The ‘one of the officers involved in the Breonna filming of Taylor which was abandoned by its original distributor.
DW Books will officially launch next spring, the Nashville Daily Wire reported on Wednesday. The new publishing arm continues a trend by conservatives to create channels outside of New York homes, which following the Jan.6 siege of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump have grown increasingly reluctant to confront the perpetrators – including Trump – seen as promoting extremist views.
“By working with some of the world’s greatest writers, and then using the marketing prowess of the Daily Wire to bring their work to a wider audience, we will ensure that conservatives and free thinkers are never silenced – qu ‘in fact, their exposure continues to grow. Shapiro said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Louise Burke and Kate Harston launched All Seasons Press, two former heads of conservative editions of New York publishing houses, which screen Trump insider books as the House’s former chief of staff. Blanche Mark Meadows and former Business Advisor Peter Navarro.
“Society stands ready to welcome authors who are attacked, harassed, banned from social media and in some cases outright rejected by politically correct editors,” All Seasons announced in June.
Simon & Schuster released a book by Senator Josh Hawley after the Missouri Republican openly expressed support for the January 6 rally in Washington, which led some attendees to storm the Capitol and attempt to prevent Democrat Joe Biden from being officially certified as the next president . Many editors in New York have said they will not publish a memoir of Trump if he decides to write one, citing in part his false claim that the 2020 election was stolen.
Even the distribution agreements, once little noticed by the public, have been called into question in the face of widespread objections. Simon & Schuster in April withdrew the distribution for “The Struggle for Truth: The Inside Story Behind the Breonna Taylor Tragedy,” by Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, who, along with another officer, fired shots that hit Taylor in a March 13, 2020 narcotics raid that killed Taylor.
DW has announced that it will publish Mattingly’s book, which was originally acquired by independent publisher Post Hill Press, under a different title, to be announced later. They’ll publish it and other Daily Wire books through Ingram Content Group’s Two Rivers Distribution, where other clients range from Gun Digest to progressive publisher The New Press.
“Simon & Schuster was too scared to tell their story (from Mattingly), but we’re not,” Alyssa Cordova, DW Books vice president of publishing, told The Associated Press.
Other DW releases include a book by Daily Wire host Candace Owens and a book by Carano, the “Mandolorian” actor who was abandoned at the beginning of the year by LucasFilm after comparing the current political climate to the experience of Jews during the Holocaust.
Shapiro and Owens have each worked with New York publishers and have recently published bestsellers. But Cordova said DW Books saw itself as “the perfect partner for conservative authors looking for a publisher who shares their values and can provide direct access to millions of like-minded Americans who appreciate premium content. and stimulating “.
