I'm pretty sure that she actually called it a mixed review. And thats exactly what it is. The reviewers take on Moore seems spot on. She does say some positive things, as well as negative ones - there are certainly more than one or two negative comments, and the tone isn't exactly that of a paean to Moore.Originally posted by: Lucky
she said it was a negative review! Put down the pipe and re-read it! There may be one or two negative comments but undeniably as a whole it is a positive review, which is what oreilly claimed.
If that was a review of me, and my book, I would certainly have mixed feelings, and I definately wouldn't pin it to my wall! She doesn't pull any punches on Moore's flaws. And as for the conclusion paragraph;
"Mr. Moore has marshaled all of his impassioned, populist bluster to effecting that change. That makes "Dude, Where's My Country?" a bumper sticker that doubles as a book."
Well, its not exactly a rave review. So - it contains both praise and criticism - definately not a positive review, but a mixed review - a Fair and Balanced one.
