'Thankfully, the Pew Research Center has more important things to do than to figure out what the public thinks about wine writers. I fear that if they undertook the task, they would find that many people view wine writing with some degree of scorn.'
A link to a report on the James Suckling in Quebec controversy, which includes a link to the three videos for which SAQ (La Société des Alcools du Quebec) say they paid Suckling $18,000.
