David Barton's 'Jefferson Lies' book yanked after complaints
Our take: David Barton, founder and president of WallBuilders, a group that describes itself as "dedicated to presenting America's forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious and constitutional foundation on which America was built" recently had his book "Jefferson Lies" published which landed on the New York Times Best-Sellers list a month later. However, after several complaints of historical inaccuracies, the book has been pulled from shelves.
A best-selling book is getting boxed up and returned to the publisher after complaints of historical inaccuracies.
Publisher Thomas Nelson has withdrawn 'The Jefferson Lies" after a lengthy review found the author, David Barton, had included "historical details that were not adequately supported," said Brian Hampton, a senior vice president and publisher for Thomas Nelson.
Hampton said the move was "extremely rare" and he could not recall a time in the publisher's history when it had recalled a book in this manner. "Were disappointed for everyone concerned," Hampton said.
