That's nothing. For years Sony got away with a fake critic reviewing their movies.

That's not manipulation. They provided the source. If people are dumb enough to think Peter Travers said it, that's their own fault.

re: Hollywood is manipulating commercials with biased reviews
IMO the marriage of Twitter and other forms of mass media has lowered the standards of the other media in general.

Most of ESPN's non-game programing is now fueled by it. They run tweets across the bottom of the screen during Sportscenter. Their national morning drive time radio simulcast builds some day's content around it and vice versa.

I don't watch any of the major network's morning programing, but I imagine they do something similar there too. They might be doing it during the evening news. Why not, they've been showing the daily news in a formulated order for years.

Another famous stunt promoted the poorly-reviewed 1961 musical Subways Are For Sleeping. Merrick found seven New Yorkers who had the same names as the city's seven leading theater critics: Howard Taubman, Walter Kerr, John Chapman, John McClain, Richard Watts, Jr., Norman Nadel, and Robert Coleman. Merrick invited the seven namesakes to the musical and secured their permission to use their names and pictures in an advertisement alongside quotes such as "One of the few great musical comedies of the last thirty years" and "A fabulous musical. I love it." Merrick then prepared a newspaper ad featuring the namesakes' rave reviews under the heading "7 Out of 7 Are Ecstatically Unanimous About Subways Are For Sleeping".

Only one newspaper, the New York Herald Tribune, published the ad, and only in one edition; however, the publicity that the ad garnered helped the musical remain open for 205 performances (almost six months). Merrick later revealed that he had conceived the ad several years previously, but had not been able to execute it until Brooks Atkinson retired as the New York Times theater critic in 1960 since he could not find anyone with the same name.

All the papers except one refused to run the ad -- they were tipped off by the fact that the critic Richard Watts was white, and the Watts in the ad was black.
