In what many have dubbed a flagrant intervention by Amazon itself to seemingly boost the rating of Hillary Clinton’s new book “What Happened“, the Telegraph first reported, and subsequently many others observed first hand, that Amazon has been monitoring and deleting 1-star reviews of Hillary Clinton’s new book “which was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released.”
Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some accusing Clinton of using it as an opportunity to blame others – such as former FBI head James Comey, Bernie Sanders, Vladimir Putin, social media and pretty much everything else – for her failure, rather than herself. Even The New York Times, which supported Clinton’s campaign, wrote that the book is “a score-settling jubilee”.
What is fascinating, is how few one-star reviews have remained on the website amid reports and screengrabs showing that reviewers used the space to criticise the former First Lady. One 1-star review, which remained on the website earlier today, read: “Read all the promotional excerpts, which combined come close to book length – pretty good novel. It is fiction, isn’t it? Surely, someone is playing a joke.” Another wrote “Picked this book up at Wal-Mart out of sheer morbid curiosity. Returned it, claiming I bought the wrong book”
While this is not the first time Amazon has intervened to “adjust” the ratings of its products – in November negative comments under a book by anti-Trump broadcaster Megyn Kelly appeared to be removed by the retailer – it has rarely “adjusted” reviews of such a prominent product so publicly.
Why does the media pay so much attention to this three-time loser? (Once in 1992, again in 2008, and again in 2016.) JS
Hillary was always smarter than Bill, more cunning and had the long term goal of becoming President even as a student in college. She desperately wanted to break the glass ceiling. It was part of the Clinton plan to become independently wealthy as they both were from non-privileged families.
While in the White House she was vicious in her ambition. Staff were terrified, even the Secret Service who were witness to the Clinton’s bizzare behavior on a daily basis were afraid of her rage and vindictiveness. I don’t know how many books have been written about the Clinton’s lack of ethics and morals but there are more than a handful.
As a university student Hillary studied subversive literature like Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” in which Alinsky praised the skill sets of Lucifer. She was a true Machiavellian at her core.
It was a marriage of convenience where one scratched the back of the other in exchange for future support. Unfortunately, Bill’s sex addiction and insatiable greed tainted both Bill and Hillary. Their chairitable foundation was a scam that filled their pocket books and used the suffering of others for their own benefit. (See “How the Clinton Foundation Got Rich off Poor Haitians”)
I don’t know if they were members of a satanic cult as many in Washiington D.C. are (Eyes Wide Shut) but their behavior certainly points in that direction. The Washington Post once reported that the Clintons once received a “brief course in voodoo theology” from Haiti’s Max Beauvoir, a voodoo-priest while visiting the island. They were certainly not far removed from the Pizzagate circle of Washinton D.C.
