Removing the Critic

A very interesting blog by Baltimore Sun Critic Tim Smith:

"Don Rosenberg, music critic at the Cleveland Plain Dealer for 16 years, was told yesterday by the paper's editor that he will no longer be covering the famed Cleveland Orchestra."

A lot of very well respected critics respond in the comments as do folks from the orchestra. I think at this point in time we're lucky to have fine arts/classical music critics. Criticizing the critic too much may lead to newspapers thinking they aren't worth the trouble. A critical critic is better than no critic at all.
