Scroll down a bit to find it.

Reuters was surprised at the response: "We heard from a surprising number of readers on this one, generally saying we were too easy on the WSWA and didn’t try hard enough show the broad issues involved: Editor"

Gary, I would bet that they are generally surprised by the responses from people who know what tricks the wholesalers are up to. Most non-wine folks remain clueless as to the issues behind wine shipping prohibition, and so there is a great need to get the truth out there.

Too bad they didn't actually stand up and take responsibility for their irresposnible journalism: admit you screwed up, don't just say some poeple think you did.

Great find Gary.

There response is just as bad as the article...

Reuters is only good for their market data applications. Data that is taken from another reliable source...
