5.0 out of 5 stars Faithful Journalists will hate this book, May 18, 2014
By 
This review is from: Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment (Hardcover)
Journalists and others who are faithful to Barack Obama will hate this book. Why they are faithful is an open question, because the 44th President of the United States has defrauded journalists along with everyone else. Obama came into office promising the "most transparent in American history." That promise, along with every other, has been slashed and burned by Obama himself as he marches toward 2016 like some modern-day General Sherman.

LOL. Where are all the commenters complaining that you haven't read the book?

Fair enough. A five star rating is as inappropriate for an unread book as a one star rating.

However, I know of the author and read him consistently so my expectation would be four or five stars. That's why I intend to buy it once released.

If you've given the book one star unread my guess is that you'll NEVER read the book.

As to his question about journalists, their employers understand the threat that the federal government poses to their industry. We're seeing it now in the ATT/Comcast merger and the anti-trust resolution. We see it in the FCC threat to put inspectors in broadcast news rooms. We see it the threat of taxation. Government has deliberately put journalists under their control. Now, the FCC claims regulation of the internet.

I know of the author and have read many of his National Review articles, which is exactly my argument for assuming in advance that it will have no real merit other than to stoke the fires of partisan rancor.

I make a prediction now: The contents of this book will make no substantive contribution to any actual legal impeachment proceeding against the President.

If that turns out to be true, then I think my position will be well vindicated.

Yes, it's clear that "Jeff's amazon stuff" inhabits a different universe and has nothing pertinent to say about McCarthy's book.

Nevertheless, he's right on this, as is Joseph Somsel: Steven's "review" isn't a review, and it should be deleted by Amazon. (So should "Jeff's amazon stuff"'s own "review" of McCarthy's book.)

Amazon should be deleting a huge number of such "reviews" across its site, since it's clear that so many of them actually say nothing about the subject books.

Next time consider posting a review that actually addresses the content of the book.
