Everywhere I can fact check from personal knowledge, I find way too many inaccuracies, and unfortunately that casts doubt over every episode in the book.MacKenzie Bezos, wife of Jeff, gave a one-star review to a book about her husband’s company—this little outfit you may have heard of called Amazon.

You know that we can hear you, right?Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi • Speaking, visibly shocked, to Buncombe County, North Carolina GOP party official Don Yelton, who said a number of extremely racist things during an interview with Mandvi about the state’s voter ID law, as well as this shocking admission of the law’s intention: “The law is going to kick the Democrats In the butt.” He was forced to resign today, because, seriously, what the hell?

» SFB says: Whoa—take a step back here … give the guy some credit. Did it strike you that, beyond the fact that the reporter had a vehicle in a building which was destroyed in a terror attack, he might also be concerned about the victims of such an attack, as well as informing the public? That it’s not a binary one-or-the-other thing? That reporter has probably been working his ass off in recent days (his Twitter account speaks to this). It’s not like he stopped what he was doing to get his car immediately after the attack ended—he went days after it ended. He also did something else on the way—he gave the public a first-hand account of exactly how damaged the mall is, which I’m guessing most people didn’t have a good handle on prior to his story. (Also, FWIW. he and the fellow employees he went with brought jumper cables to help other people trying to recover their cars.) — Ernie @ SFB
