1. Yep. Not a new scam, either. At least a decade ago, the NYT Book Review...

...started placing a little symbol next to certain book titles. It was a little cross or dagger, as I recall. The NYT apparently has sources at book sellers which report large bulk sales to them, which obviously do not represent grass-roots book buying. All too often what's going on--especially with the moronic books "written" by Donald Trump Jr, etc.--is that "think" tanks, right-wing foundations, and Republican party organizations are buying massive quantities of books and then giving them away at their rubber-chicken fundraising dinners. Anything they can't give away either goes to the dollar stores or is shredded.
