Commentary by Lynne Christopher:
Doesn’t seem quite right that new restaurant owner, Terryl Gavre, continues to write restaurant reviews two local magazines. The conflict of interest is clear. This is not just about her breakfast joint downtown. She is now involved with celebrity chef Carl Schroeder who needs all the local and national media he can get.
A restaurant reviewer with any kind of professionalism, integrity and honesty would resign immediately and decide just exactly which job she is doing and follow the rules of good journalism.
P.S. There is a reason why high quality publications and especially newspapers have very strict guidelines about conflicts of interest and taking freebies.
