USA | Woodward book goes on sale as ex-Trump aides push back

On Bob Woodward (you know, of Woodward and Bernstein), he accused him of writing a book about the White House just "to make 3 extra shekels". The book quotes anonymous sources.

Bob Woodward's "Fear" is spreading quickly.

"Shekels is a derogatory term used by white supremacists that ties into the myth that Jewish people only care about money", Hankes said, adding that it's "used constantly by the extreme right and particularly neo-Nazis".

After the error was corrected, almost every one-star review for Woodward's Fear was written by a customer who accidentally ordered the wrong version and had not actually read the book itself, because some people are easily frustrated and apparently have no idea what the review section is actually for.

Speaking to reporters in the White House, Trump praised his former aides' supportive statements and again labeled the book "fiction".

Trump is focused on his agenda, has an nearly limitless energy and a 24-hour-a-day work ethic. Publisher Simon & Schuster announced that 1 million copies will be printed, though even Amazon, the nation's biggest book retailer, couldn't keep up with demand.

Tens of thousands of homes and businesses could be flooded in North Carolina alone, Governor Cooper said. On its current track, Florence is expected to hit the Carolinas and Virginia the hardest, the NHC said.

"Fear" is virtually assured of joining Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" as a million-selling takedown of Trump. The pace of sales, which include print, e-books and an audio edition, is among the fastest in memory for a nonfiction work.

The book has dominated political headlines since reports about it emerged last week. If you've looked at the book, they're very specific incidents.

On Thursday, Woodward told CBS that he literally has "boxes of recordings and documents", related to the extensive interviews he had with White House officials and others close to the president.

A mysterious (hilarious?) bug appeared to temporarily drag down the Amazon customer rating for Bob Woodward's new book about the Trump administration's first year in office.

Since becoming famous in the 1970s for his Watergate reporting, Woodward has written several best-sellers about sitting presidents.
