Fiji Water Deemed ‘Despicable’


Anna Lenzer’s Fiji Water exposé has made quite a splash: It’s a top search term on AOL, and has been mentioned on dozens of blogs and media sites, including both NYTimes.com and LATimes.com. Now it’s gotten a spot on New York magazine’s “approval matrix.” Anna’s tale of how Fijian police threatened to imprison her while reporting was rated as both “highbrow” and “despicable” by the New York staff. I have to say I agree with them on both counts. But as LeVar Burton used to say, You don’t have to take my word for it. You can read Anna’s entire story for yourself here.
