  •  I agree. The newest reviews with one star (4+ / 0-)

    seem to be from the Foxbots.  They can't even articulate anything in the book, and one isn't a review of the book at all but slams Ricks for what he said on Fox.

    I marked them all "unhelpful" as well.  There was only 1 one-star review before the Fox appearance and the reviewer supported his reasoning.  Most were 4 and 5 stars.

    •  Disgusting that they would even do that (4+ / 0-)

      See, it just proves FOX News (and indeed, the extreme right wing) is a fucking cult.

      I hear a lot of crap I don't agree with on the TeeVee...and I don't go trashing people's books or inundating them with hate mail.

      It's a cult.  This is how Scientology operates.  That is why it is impossible to deal with these people.

      If FOX News went off the air - or at least, if the wind is taken out of their ridiculous partisan, conspiracy theory saturated, totally un-newsworthy sails - and some of that will go away.

        or a me-too thing, but Dr. Laura did that with her books as well (got her listeners to uprate positive reviews and downrate negative ones).  It's beyond "freeping" a poll (note that comes from a rightist site) because they're messing with other people's opinions and rating books they haven't read.  That makes the ratings unreliable, which I guess they prefer over them being accurate.

        Because we know reality has a left-wing bias.
