He was prompted to write the article after reading Josh Josh Ozersky’s column in Time Magazine, which bizarrely referred to the controversial site as "generally accurate and unbiased." Watson says: "I know more than one writer that began as a Yelper, learned that they enjoyed reviewing restaurants, and have moved on to writing either a well-respected blog or for a paid position with a legitimate publication. But for every one of those, it feels like there are five reviews that aren’t worth the time it takes to read them." [AJC]
