Wine Writer Bullies

Wine Writer Bullies | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

A great follow-up on the $uckling $tory and wine writers acting as bullies.

 

Is it sensible that they keep on threatening to sue people simply for publishing what they've been up to? We're not talking about things being made up, but about the truth.

 

Surely they would be better off getting their houses in order than using the courts to bully people into staying silent?

$usckling $ucks Bucks - Dr Vino

$usckling $ucks Bucks - Dr Vino | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

It looks like wine critic James Suckling received $24,000 for reviewing wines in Canada.

 

The well known wine critic appears to have received payment for Canadian wine reviews despite saying that he didn't receive a penny. "No financial relationship" is what he said. $24,000 seems to say something else.

 

How much does it matter that reviewers are receiving these payments? Is it just a matter of disclosure, or is it more fundamentally wrong than that?
