What do I do?

Thanks for the thoughts I am probably over-thinking this and being paranoid and all that. It makes me sound like a chicken but I'll probably leave it alone since I have no idea what he fallout will be and its probably best not to get involved but it makes me pretty disgusted with myself that that is what I'm going to do.

Wish I worked in another field or city so I would not care about what the result was!!! But I guess I am too selfish and want too much to keep my job to do the right thing. Thanks for listening to me think about it out loud and thanks for the different opinions. it helps!

What do I do?

They're a paid staff member. I guess the thing I worry about is that I contact the editor and they say so what? Then it gets back to the restarant and suddenly I worry that I'll be blacklisted. maybe that's too paranoid but things like this always sound easy then you get ready to do them and you start thinking of all the ways they can bite you in the ass.

What do I do?

Hi -

I'm connected with a restaurant (have worked there but not anymore) that has a paid relationship with a food blogger for a mainstream food blog run by a very big magazine. Basically, this individual receives cash and free meals at the place I used to work in exchange for posting nice things about it on the blog he writes for. I don't know if his bosses know about his arrangement or not.

I figure that this isn't a big deal, but recently I noticed that the blog he writes for is going out of its way to trash competitors restaurants (vegetarian restaurants) and I feel like this is morally wrong. What do I do? Do I post something in public? Do I contact his editors? Or do I just foreget about it because this happens all the time and no one cares. I don't want to get in trouble for this because I'm still working in the industry.

Any advice?
