And now…Dr. Tea!
DailySkew poster R.A.W. may be displeased to know that in addition to a pseudo-scientist writing a book about how mosquitos wiped out the dinosaurs, a Los Angeles shop co-owner named Mark “Dr. Tea” Ukra is being covered by ABC and other major MEDIA outlets to promote his book. (I will not mention the book title, as I refuse to help promote this guy as much as I am already.)
Anyway, in addition to dozens of bloggers launching a campaign promoting “Dr. Tea’s” diet book (in most cases, bust COPYING and pasting the same article over and over again), it’s being reported as news all across the world. Many automated webcrawling robots are indexing Dr. Tea’s book as we speak to spread the word about how YOU can lose weight, lower your blood pressure, and increase metabolism, in addition to making unique recipes with tea!
It’s a crying shame that millions of Americans CAN’T SEE THROUGH THIS marketing campaign. After all, if someone’s on QVC and is on your local news, HE MUST BE LEGITIMATE, right? I mean your body DOES need Candy Bar Tea for $12.50 for two ounces of tea PLUS $6.50 shipping and handling, right?
Look, when is everyone going to accept that authors (including myself) just want to make a living for themselves, and to generate profits? There’s nothing WRONG with that. If they didn’t, they’d be working for a not-for-profit organization writing free brochures, or living in a Buddhist temple in Tibet or Catholic Church in Europe.
But let’s come clean, Dr. Tea. Stop hiding behind this altruistic and ideal image of spreading the Truth about your tea secrets. And shame on the MEDIA for giving him all of the free publicity. As for chat rooms, radio spots, and blogs talking about how this book is great, well…it must be true then, right? :-)
I told DailySkew readers how to live a healthy lifestyle, and I did it for free with no profit. There is no SECRET WAY. It’s all public domain, folks.
