Maybe Newsarama, like everyone else, just really liked the book?
Well, I don't read the Newsarama stuff anymore, but I didn't notice any difference myself. NBC or whatever network that was on didn't pay them either, I am certain. It's more about the desire to please rather than critically view a thing--and I was just kidding earlier in the thread when I pegged you as a "pleaser", BTW.
It's a difficult balance for any reviewer sometimes.
In regards to the authenticity of each and every blurb--it'd be hard to say without having more context to go with the quotes, and I don't even have the issue at hand at this moment.
I think you're just trying to sidetrack the original question, though, which was why were they the first page-and-a-half of this issue?
