 TAGS:En un artículo publicado en eRobertParker.com, Robert Parker ha anunciado que Jay Miller ya no escribirá para The Wine Advocate. Parker ha dicho: "Después de varios meses de consideración, Big Jay, quien ha realizado un trabajo muy completo y profesional para dar cobertura y atención a nuevas regiones productoras de vino como España, América del Sur y el Noroeste del Pacífico, ha decidido regresar a la consultoría del vino, a la docencia y la venta al detalle de vinos".

Miller dice que regresará a tiempo parcial a Bin 604, una tienda de vinos, trabajando en un libro y puede iniciar un blog sobre el vino. Y agregó:

Algunos pueden creer que mi dimisión es una respuesta a mis críticos. Nada podría estar más lejos de la verdad. Me he sentido obligado a responder mientras formaba parte del personal de Wine Advocate. Mientras que la oficina ha defendido mis acciones, con razón, ahora es el momento para hablar por mí mismo... dejo The Wine Advocate con la conciencia tranquila. Nunca he aceptado (o solicitado) pagos por visitar regiones vitivinícolas y bodegas.

Neal Martin se encargará de revisar los vinos de España, Argentina y Chile para la publicación. David Schildknecht revisará los vinos de Oregon y Washington.

I have been following Mr. Budd´s “thorough” investigation of Mr Campo. I have also wondered about the time he has been spending on this journalistic research. Either someone is funding this investigation or he is a very rich man. Which brings me to the following; has he actually been doing this investigation himself or is he relying on third parties. It is my understanding that a proper investigative “journalist” would actually travel to the places in question, in this case Spain, ask for proper documentation on the spot (not emails that could have been cut, pasted) and perhaps even show up at The Wine Academy and question staff. Why has this not been done?
I posted a question on his blog the other day of whether this was not perhaps a smear campaign against Mr. Campo, similar to the one he was victim of back in 2000http://www.harpers.co.uk/news/news-headlines/437-jim-budd-victim-of-smear-campaign.html, but of course, he withdrew the post immediately.
Another issue that I find strange is why Mr. Budd, an English teacher in London give up teaching in his forties, to write about wine? Although a teacher’s pay may not be massive, at least you get a pension once you retire after a number of years. Was his leaving his career related to the accusations made against him back in 2000? Does he have a degree in journalism? Is he an actual investigator? I am curious…

Hi @Peter,
Jim Budd is in his right to write about wines as much as Parker, who was a lawyer. And he's in his right to investigate, no matter the money he has or not. I think the point is: is it truth what he says?
Jim Budd is exposing his prestige; if it's not truth, nobody is going to trust him anymore. But if it's truth, Wine Advocate's scores will be under suspect, as far as you won't know if someone had to pay to get a good -or not so good- score. It wouldn't be what Parker anounced to do. And it's not an spanish problem, because if it happened in Spain, who knows what's happening elsewhere?
About Campo, he was doing his own job, and he was not forced to accept Parker's ethical guideline, so he can do whatever he wants as a wine promoter, respecting the law. Even if it were barely ethical, it's only his problem. A different thing it's what you can think about him and his way of work because of this. But, before that, things need to be probed. Let's see...
