Amazon Becoming Blatantly Political

Sep 14, 2017

The Amazon Company’s website that is owned by Jeff Bezos, who also owns the ultra-liberal Washington Post, has long shown a political bias against conservative writers and in favor of liberals. Advertising of books that lean to the right is often refused and some books are removed from the site as e-books.

Amazon always had some kind of explanation for this type of behavior but it will have a tough time explaining what is occurring with Hillary Clinton’s new book, “What happened?” in the last 48 hours. Shortly after the book was released there were about 80 reviews fairly evenly divided between positive and negative although the majority were negative. By Wednesday almost all of the negative one star reviews had been removed and out of 496 reviews 96% were 5 star reviews with only 2% being 1 star. One news outlet has reported that at least 900 negative reviews have been removed.
