Michael Wolff’s “Fire And Fury” Gets This “Fake News” Review On Amazon — Sounds Familiar?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and read here. Real review on Amazon. I kid you not. Go an check under the 1-star reviews.


I did buy the book yesterday
i.e., Friday, January 5, 2018,
as soon as it was available.

I couldn’t wait.

Amazon does NOT have it in paper form!

So downloaded the Kindle.


I read about 12 pages this ‘morning’ — i.e., around 2 am, before I finally went to bed.

Interesting.

Couple of glaring — an editor should have spotted that — typos and the English is sometimes muddled and even incorrect. But most Americans will not notice the latter. {Smile}

I enjoyed what I read so far.

TripAdvisor Not Publishing Negative ‘1-Star’ Reviews. I Quit.

I had 70 reviews and 280 photographs on ‘TripAdvisor‘. I was a Level 6 Contributor with 26 Helpful Votes and over 25,000 views. I would get at least 3 – 4 e-mails a week from “TripAdvisor” about how people loved my reviews and begging me to post more.

So after our trip to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks & San Francisco, at the end of April 2016, when I didn’t have a camera and was not doing any posts, I submitted a bunch of reviews to TA. One of them was for “Grant Grove Restaurant” at King’s Canyon. The service was terrible and the food was bad. See reviews above. So my title was “Same As Previous Review”. I then went onto explain that we, one week later, experienced exactly the same. TA published all my other reviews within 16 hours. BUT would not publish this ‘1-star’ review. I e-mailed them and asked them. They fobbed me off.

That was it. They are not honest and sincere. Screw them. I closed my account. I am not dealing with an outfit that is disingenuous.

This is a BIG joke on the part of Amazon, just in the same way that most of us, who actually do real business on the site, know that at least 50% of the reviews are a JOKE.

They are out-and-out BOGUS and Amazon has ENCOURAGED that for decades.

There were people in the U.S. writing reviews for the Sony RX10 II, that they claimed that they had bought from Amazon, 8 weeks BEFORE the camera started shipping in the U.S.!

I have review on some of my books from people who I know, just from what the review says, never saw the book let alone bought it.

Amazon, and here I speak as one who has MORE of a monetary stake in Amazon (in terms of the number of shares I own) that in any other ‘thing’ (including our (very modest) house) in the World. Yes, I am a genuine stakeholder. I want Amazon to do well. But on this issue I know that Amazon will always be disingenuous and even duplicitous. They WANT reviews — more stars the better. They EVENTUALLY published my 1-star review against the Sony a77 Mk II, but only after 72 hours when my 4- and 5-star reviews get published in seconds!

I do plan to attend the next shareholder meeting, in Seattle, in person. My main goal is to address the issue of Kindle books and the widespread misconception that you need a Kindle to read a Kindle eBook. That drives me nuts. Amazon share are going gangbusters. But the share price does not reflect quite a few things that are drastically wrong with this company — their encouragement of bogus reviews high on that list.
