ABC Six on your side and Dirty Dining are hurting small restaurant businesses. While the people may have the right to view Columbus Health Department case reports, it seems like Dirty Dining is a little biased in the way it presents these stories. First of all, it seems like Dirty Dining is only reporting from a subjective point of view and doesn't really tell the entire story.
While it may be true that they don't have the space to cover everything, it does hurt and damage businesses. I think Dirty Dining could be a bit more objective in their reports. Tom Sussi seems like a real d****e bag on screen, now I don't know if that persona is something viewers like, but let's just say his "opinions" about local restaurants based on health department citations are not always objective.
I always believed the media was supposed to be objective, but it seems like ABC 6 Dirty Dining's only goal is to ruin small businesses, namely minority owned businesses. Take a look at the clips, nearly 80% of all the restaurants featured in Dirty Dining are small businesses owned by minorities such as Asian, Hispanic and Middle Eastern.
Dirty Dining is NOT objective news reporting and the commentary by Tom Sussi do nothing but hurt a business owner's situation. Most of the Health Department violations are similar to speeding tickets; sh*t happens and they are easily fixed so there is no reason to ostracize a restaurant from the community, ABC 6 Dirty Dining.
Dirty Dining is all about the ratings and I believe this program either needs to be shut down or toned down a little. Many times the opinions of Dirty Dining are not as disgusting or severe as Tom Sussi and ABC Six would like you to believe. All of these reports are entirely subjective and are only partial to the facts.
