Pelosi Book Bombs
Nancy Pelosi has accomplished the virtually impossible: on Amazon.com, where her new book Know Your Power is currently ranked #1,457, she has an average rating of 1 star after 219 customer reviews. There is no 0 star rating. From a typical reader review:
5 star: (9)
4 star: (2)
3 star: (1)
2 star: (2)
1 star: (29)

Disgraceful Censorship by Amazon, August 1, 2008
By Beauregard (USA) - See all my reviews
I took time to review the book. But Amazon purged my review along with some 200 others. It's a waste of time to read - or write - reviews for Amazon because the company manipulates the results. This dishonesty is akin to rigging a poll, or even an election. You can't trust Amazon's star-rating system or the prevailing opinions in the reviews. You can't trust Amazon.
C. S. Johnson says:
Amazon is run by a bunch of effete latte-sucking liberals in Seattle who are in the tank for Nancy, and in the tank for her publisher; but mostly they are in the tank for their own profits. Of course, they love Nancy's politics, but more importantly they want to sell millions of copies of her unreadable, self-serving memoir.
So when when Amazon reviewers trash Nancy and her crummy book, Amazon comes to her rescue. Not only did Amazon delete some 200 negative reviews, they also boosted Nancy's star rating from one star to two.
The most powerful woman in the history of American politics is suffering a humiliating defeat at the nation's bookstores, sales figures show.
In her first week at market, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi sold just 2,737 copies of her book KNOW YOUR POWER, according to NIELSEN BOOKSCAN.
Goes to show you people are more interested in finding out the truth than the MSM would have you believe.
