Corn-flict of interest?

Posted By on Wed, Sep 29, 2010 at 12:22 PM

So maybe the Gazette’s Food section reports culinary news nearly six months after it happens, as if it’s brand new. But at least you can rest assured that it’s the six-month-old news that’s truly of the greatest news value, right?

Well, today’s “On Food” installment makes you wonder. At the base of the Page 1 column in the print edition, there’s a box that notes the column, headlined “Handy tool lets you zip through a corn recipe,” is sponsored by Chefs retail store, at 5070 Centennial Blvd. If you look just a few inches above that box, you learn where Teresa Farney found her “handy tool.” Any guesses?

“I found mine at Chefs retail store, 5070 Centennial Blvd., for $11.95.”

You first, then Ill scratch yours.

Geez, no way that sales influenced that bit of editorial, is there? We’ve asked Gazette editor Jeff Thomas for comment, and will update this post if we hear back.
