Miss Vero does not know how much more of this we can take. We have mentioned the Press Journal's restaurant critic, Diana Foote, five times already for her ridiculous musings. Y'all remember the time she mulled over a decision to wear a fur to lunch in Vero? Read it if you must:
After her little rant yesterday about the Patio (which Miss Vero has thoroughly covered, thank you very much), we are takin off the gloves! Check this out:
PAID TO PLAGIARIZE?
This woman is really "Out to lunch" and Miss Vero is gonna prove it. First she name drops Tony Bourdain and then quotes him gushing over the film;
"Ratatouille" "quite simply the best food movie ever made...
the best restaurant movie ever made. The best chef movie."
Oh really? How about mentioning the fact that Mr. Bourdain was paid to be a consultant on this project?
She goes on -supposedly in her own words- to tell you:
"Animation is so advanced now that you could see the old
burns on the arms of the chefs who got too close to the heat."
That's funny, in Mr. Bourdain's original statement he had a similar observation;
"The tiny details are astonishing: The faded burns on the cooks' wrists."
Here's the original article quoting Mr. Bourdain exactly, compare it children, to the garbage that Miss Foote is PAID to produce for the Press Journal.
Apparently you missed the Journalism Ethics 101 class at Vassar, Miss Foote.
Miss Vero is callin you out on the playground girl.
And how dare you, Marilyn Bauer, feature editor for the Press Journal, allow this type of trash to be printed. Being the only paper in town does not give you the right to promote crap, even if it is a dinky restaurant review, have you no standards?
Pul-ease! I beg you, put her out of My Misery!
Will we ever get a decent periodical in this town kids? Ohh wait! Miss Vero just remembered why we started blogging!
Y'all know it's a double martini day don'tcha?
