We asked Barry Krusch why his respectful, critical review of Bill O’Reilly’s book was removed from Amazon.com.
Amazon never provided me with a reason for why they removed the video. I know some people with connections to Amazon, and they were not able to find out either.
The video passed all of Amazon’s internal reviews to be posted in the first place, and it was listed as the most helpful negative review, and the second most helpful review overall.
So there is no reason for them to have removed the video apart from a complaint by some very powerful people, whether it was Bill O’Reilly’s publisher or Bill O’Reilly himself, hard to say.
That is my best guess. It takes a lot of work to go around and Amazon official policy, which is to never remove a negative review which fits their criteria, as mine did.
Bezos caves to O’Reilly? Say it ain’t say so Jeff.
