Members of the news media, including from publications such as Time and Newsweek, have reacted harshly to the announcement of the No. 1 non-fiction book in America, which investigates President Obama, with multiple reporters sending expletive-laden e-mails to the author's publicist saying they did not want to receive a copy. Sliwa noted that when reporters are not interested in her releases, they normally do not reply. She said in her 10 years of working in public relations, she never has received the kind of response from reporters provoked by publicizing "The Manchurian President." She said her goal in publicly exposing the e-mail responses to "Manchurian" is not to embarrass the journalists, but she believes it is important to "call them out on their duty as members of the press to leave their biases where they belong at the door." The Article So, instead of reading the book and rebutting it with facts and documentation, many in the media decided to ignore it.
