The words “New York Times bestseller” appear in the advertisements a total of four times. In some places the word “bestseller” appears in capital letters. In other places it’s all lowercase.

Mr. Sorkin expects the ads to run for the rest of the day and maybe tomorrow. He added in an email to the Media Mob: “No employee discount!”
