Virginia Willis Calls Out Nat Geo Over Wicked Tuna

VirginiaWillis-150.jpegCelebrated southern food writer Virginia Willis decries National Geographic's new show Wicked Tuna. In her blog post, Willis called the upcoming series "a deal with the devil" for sensationalizing and exploiting the near extinction of blue-fin tuna, and said the decision by the National Geographic Society in partnership with Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation makes her feel "betrayed, heartbroken, and sick." Check out the heated rebuttals in the comments from fishermen and those lobbying for their rights too. [Virginia Willis Culinary Productions]
