You know those problems we all have with Josh Ozersky?

Well, Robert Sietsema has them, too.

(NB: Josh -- or whoever writes his headlines -- is now calling himself a "Food Critic". But I thought his prior defense of his practices was that he WASN'T a critic.)

Josh Ozersky is ethically challenged? I feel like I just learned there is no Santa Claus.

I would imagine that the editors wrote the headline, which Ozersky may have known nothing about.

This is no defense to the rest of the charges, however. The Sietsema piece is pretty devastating. I read the Ozersky article and thought it should have said "special advertising section" at the top.

I was Googling Ozersky and it appears he's widened his sponsorship base -


"I don't understand what's wrong with thinking of correlation as a pricing convention the way one thinks of Black-Scholes vol. I mean, vol curves aren't "real" anyway, but nobody uses local vol models to price vanilla options." - Taion
 
"But this is blatant ultracrepidarianism on my part." - Taion

I have a dream of a multiplicity of pastramis.

Well, did you see (what I presume to be) Josh Ozersky's response in the comment section of Sietsema's article?

Has Ozersky filed an official response/rebuttal?

hardly the first one to take this route:

QUOTE
When Bob Lape, a restaurant critic for Crain's New York Business and a host of "Bob Lape's Dining Diary" on WCBS-AM, married Joanna Pruess, a food writer, in September, they persuaded 20 celebrated New York chefs, including Wayne Nish of March and Christian Delouvrier of Alain Ducasse, to contribute food to a potluck reception at the Central Park Boathouse. D'Artagnan shipped over complimentary foie gras, a point made clear on little cards on the tables. Paramount ponied up the caviar.

Eventually the couple was turning chefs away. "We were nearing the saturation point," Mr. Lape said.


iirc, Lape did not write an article praising the chefs, the above is from a Times article

Apparently Melanie Berliet went to Josh Ozersky's wedding.

I'll leave it to others to make the joke.

I don't think that was Josh. One of the commenters was called "JO", but it did not sound like a comment he would make, and Josh has never hesitated to launch a public defense against this kind of accusation..

I will look forward to the piece in which a desperately pained Ozersky complains that the "critic" title was bestowed on him without his knowledge, and that he strenuously objects(ted) to it.

I suspect he'll say, "of course it was all free. No one could have thought that I paid for that. What's the big deal?" If he says anything, which he probably shouldn't because, seriously, who gives a fuck.
