San Francisco Chronicle - Another Scoop Reporter Bites The Dust

The new lady, Amanda Berne, is leaving for a cookbook editing job. She was highly criticized, but was this too soon? She was Grace Ann Walden's replacement.

She seemed to mostly reprint press releases, but was getting better. All is not well at our beloved Food Section.

BIG BROTHER: Please leave this on the San Francisco Bay Area board because that gets the most exposure to us.

  1. What happened to Grace Ann Walden? I've been wondering. I saw her in conversation with Jeremiah Tower and liked her.

          That would be appropriate. Her newsletter consistently outscoops the scoop. It reads like she actually puts time into investigating the restaurant scene and keeping up on gossip rather than just reiterating press releases.
