The Power of $YELP – Snobby Critics are Getting Fired


SF Examiner Critic Unterman Dismissed After 20 Years

Monday, April 16, 2012, by Paula Forbes

patricia-unterman-sf-250.jpgSan Francisco restaurant critic Patricia Unterman has been let go from the San Francisco Examiner after twenty years with the paper. Surely this is all Yelp’s fault, as the website is believed by some critics to have “contributed to the mass murder of true critics.” No, it is the fault of the paper’s new owners, Canadian publisher Black Company.

Unterman saw the Examiner go through three owners during her tenure as critic; she will be replaced byEast Bay Express critic Jesse Hirsch.
