More Protests Against 'NYT' Bestseller Cuts - Publishers' Weekly

Panzer was just tootling around in the Catosphere today when his delicate kitty hearing was attacked by yelling and screaming. Following the cacophony took our poor kitty to the Publishers' Weekly (PW) site.  With a little digging there he found a news release about the New York Times (NYT) cuts to their bestseller lists. A few days ago Panzer told you when the cuts happened and authors' and publishers' reactions to them then.

A lot of humans are really angry.
According the release, now there is even more backlash against the New York Times (NYT) cuts of the mass market paperback bestseller list and the ebook bestseller list. Six authors' organizations, including the Mystery Writers of America, have joined forces to protest NYT's cuts to the lists. A total of 20,000 authors are members in the organizations issuing the statement.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... Do you think the New York Times cares if 20,000 authors complain? Now, if it was 20,000 subscribers, they might care. But 20,000 authors? I don't think so."

Note: This is a short news release. Bring a cup of tea to read today's selection. If you want to read Panzer's other post about the bestseller list cuts (this one has links to other posts), bring a thermos of tea and two muffins.
