Re:KC BBQ Food War
Ah television. Always going for the easy choice that requires no research or thought. Pick two icons, regardless of whether or not they still hold up to their reputation, and pit them against each other. Don't pay any attention to the more obscure places that may have surpassed the icons in quality and reputation because that might require some research.
Here in Chicago, they would probably pick Pizzeria Uno versus Gino's East, or maybe Lou Malnati. What about all those neighborhood places that are turning out exceptional food for a smaller audience?
I guess that's the key--audience. Quality matters not. All they care about is how many people will be watching regardless of whether the information is accurate or appropriate.
Damn I'm in a cynical mood today...
