The New York Times bestseller list is downplaying the sales of Mark Levin’s newest book, the radio host claims, and he isn’t having any of it.

On a Wednesday segment of his nationally syndicated radio show, the Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief called out the media outlet for downgrading his book “Rediscovering Americanism.” The NYT will place Levin's book at number two for hardcover nonfiction books, below a book about astrophysics by leftist scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson. This is even though it's still number one according to Nielsen BookScan – the source by which book sales are tracked – which the LevinTV host decried as “not fair to any author” and a “secretive process” in need of exposure.

Levin also says this is not the first time the newspaper has done something like this, recalling a similar instance in which his book “Rescuing Sprite” was also pushed down on the bestseller list despite higher sales on the same tracking service.

Editor's note: This article has been corrected to note that the NYT will downgrade Levin's book, not that it already has done so.
