A conspiracy? Or, perhaps someone has simply done a poor job, given that the people of the United States have served as lucrative patrons of Barnes & Noble, and Google indirectly through the advertising & other revenues they receive. A children's book about an American hero shouldn't default to a one star review on Google. Should any book default to the most negative review possible (1 star) when appearing in Google search results, when no review of the book has been submitted at all?
This behavior does not appear entirely consistent. Searching for the title 'Flag Burning and Free Speech: The Case of Texas v. Johnson' on B & N through Google does not show a quality/review scale, much less a negative review. The title is not smeared simply because it has no review, unlike the Sam Adams book. There could be many explanations.
I'm not against all flag burning, mind you. Never tried it.
I've not read the children's book on Sam Adams, but the opinion of a fellow I respect gives it high ratings. Perhaps your child would benefit from reading both the Sam Adams book, and the one about flag burning.
