Project Status – The Real Truth?

Project Status – The Real Truth?

A popular travel review site is under fire for its reviews not being authentic, even though it adamantly claims “authentic and genuine” reviews in its advertising. I am not surprised by the fact that a government Anti-Trust agency fined them for false advertising, as I had posted some reviews on a travel review site and later realized they had removed one of my negative reviews for a major hotel chain. They did not contact me to tell me they removed the negative review and I had no idea when they had actually removed it. I asked them about the removal and they justified it by stating the hotel was now under “new management,” but they left all the positive reviews from the old management, thus artificially inflating this hotels rating.
