Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The subtitle gives an accurate sense of this book's Republican slant. Washington Times reporter Sammon places the blame for 2000 presidential election controversies on the former vice president.

    Revealing, insightful and shocking

    Like most Americans who voted in 2000, the aftermath of that close election left me with many questions about the ethics and tactics of the Democrat Party and their allies in the Mainstream Press. Unable to win at the ballot box, the Gore Campaign sought to manipulate the courts and public opinion into recount after recount in a vain attempt to change the outcome. Veteran journalist Bill Sammon reveals the thinking and strategy in the Gore camp, as well as exposes the Mainstream Media's attempts to throw the election to the discredited, former Vice President by calling battleground states for him before polls in those state were closed. This book with open your eyes and disturb you. Let some posters on here bash Sammon and call him names like 'right wing.' His conclusions are based on facts and not conspiracy websites or gut feelings of people who can't admit their candidate lost. A must read for the political junkie, student of journalism and the American voter. Excellent book.

    A well written Pulp Fiction

    Wow, when I stopped reading this fiction, my mind had been brainwashed enough that I just wanted to run outside and goose step with the rest of the republicans down Pennsylvania Avenue to the white house.I just wonder what position in the bush administration the author now covets in lieu of payment for this inaccuracy.

    Just the Facts

    What I like about this book is it's about the facts. Not about opinions. The facts speak for themselves. The Truth hurts AL. Great insite into the Fl. nightmare

    The Truth Hurts

    It's not surprising that Democrats would not want the truth to come out about the election. The insist that Al Gore won the popular vote, but in reality, he did not. Votes are not counted after the candidate wins that state. Bush won more states, where the vote counting stopped. Had it continued, Bush would have won the popular vote also.

    Inflammatory and Fantasy-laden

    It really is too bad that this book has misguided so many readers with its baseless prose and obvious bias. Factual and accurate writing are eliminated when the truth contradicts the author's wishes.

    What A Blessing.

    An essential read into the political residue of the Clinton years. One can draw the conclusion from this book that to The Gore 2000 team the truth is what they make it. I guess they had 8 years to learn from the pro's. I always suspected Gore and Daly to be shady, this book spells out their devious shenanagans. After finishing this book 18 months after the fact I am filled with a clear sense of wonder, why hasn't the general public caught on to Gore's corruption. This book scares me when I think of Gore 2004. The general public are oblivious. They need to read this book.

    With a title like that . . .

    Well, you know it'll be a Republican slant on things -- so one-sided analysis will inform the critical reader, exactly, how? Do you think anything's been left out that tarnishes the right? D'ya think? And the 'tried to steal' tag in the title implies that Republicans, in the end, did it slightly better (assuming the reader knows about their own voter list tampering). By the way Bush won. What's everyone so angry about?

    They made me give it one star....

    It is a one-sided political fantasy which can't dispute the facts so 'creates' its own. Ignore this book and spend your money on something more objective or at least more factually accurate. The funniest part of this are the reviewers who give it five-stars!!! (AARGH)

    Wonderfully direct and purposeful

    Having read both this and Vincent Bugliosi book countering it, I must say that 'At any Cost' was information and fact laden as opposed to the opinion and emotion laden effort of Mr Bugliosi's mostly hysterical and forced prose. At Any Cost is a marvelous effort.

    THE INTERNAL WORKINGS

    My wife and I just finished reading this book. Having watched most of these happenings on TV while it was going on, it was good to be able to review that part of our history. Everyone should read this book, even if they don't agree with it, just for the insight of how the news organizations work in reporting the election information to the public. The one thing I would like to have seen in the book was more references to the information that was presented. It appears that much of it was personal interviews, but Mr. Sammon does not always indicate that. Also, the timing of the information given by the media was probably from watching the news archives, but we are not told that. Still a good book and a must read.

    The Truth Always Hurts!

    A must-read. Completely blows the lid off the Election 2000. Bill Sammons' account cuts through the media lies and distortions with passion and humorous insight. Though written with an obvious Republican slant, he does nothing but present the FACTS of each event in the order they progressed, from the media's left-biased, manipulative reporting of election results to Gore's last-ditch attempts to grab the White House. People who read this book should do so with an open mind, but embittered Gore supporters will not gain much by reading it, as they're blinded by media-based liberal propaganda and thouroughly convinced that George W. Bush 'stole' the election with the help of the US Supreme Court. Bottom line: You'll laugh, you'll scream, you'll pound you fist! VERY highly recommended.

    Great fact finding reading

    I followed the election but didn't realize how dirty the Democrats got. It was great reading. The only reason I didn't give it 5 *'s is because of a few to several gramatical (not typos) errors. Being a professor at a university, I have a problem with the editing. But I'm sure there was a rush to get the book out. When I go to Italy this month, I'm bringing the book with me. The hotel has a bookshelf for guests to read. The majority of its guests are British. And a few years ago, they were glued to the hotel TV watching CNN's coverage of the Monika Lewinsky hearings. So I think they'll appreciate the reading. I'd like you to give Bill Sammon a thumbs up.

    Nice Guys Don't Always Finish Last

    The book clearly describes what really went on after the election / behind the scenes in the Al Gore camp. We (the public) only saw a small part of what went on through the Democratic slanted TV news media. It is fast reading as it is written in simple, easy to understand language. Once you start, you can't put it down. Read it w/ an open mind, it is an honest book & not simply written w/ a Republican slant. It is scary to think the wrong guy almost stole the election. I am now convinced Geroge W. is the nice guy who finished first & rightly so! The disenfranchisement of the military vote was especially chilling.

    Worst Book I Have Ever Read

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR LIBRARY TIME. VERY POORLY WRITTEN AND VERY ONE SIDED. I HAVE LET SEVERAL FRIENDS BORROW IT AND THEY HAVE ALL RETURNED IT BEFORE FINISHING IT. IT WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING.

    Riveting Flashback!

    Very well written book. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Sheds some insight on the networks lax performance and Algores insane drive for power. Wish the media would pick up where Bill Sammon left off.. nice trail of bread crumbs for you ABCNBCCBSMSNBCFOXNEWS ?! But of course we'll be disappointed. Good reading, Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Sammon pens another fish story

    Was it just a bad dream? Did Bush Jr keep the world free for capitalism? Or did he free the world for exploitation by his keepers? This book is for you and the 100 million other Americans who slept through the election of 2000. More of a horror tale than a bedtime story, it will fill all those nasty little gaps in what we used to call reality.
