I heard an interesting tidbit a while ago. Someone I know had talked to a reviewer, requesting that writer review a concert. The reviewer said, per the newspaper’s policy, there can’t be a review if there was only one concert. Apparently it was only worth reviewing if readers might, after reading the review, attend a following performance.

Is this a policy that everyone has known about all along? Is this a policy every paper follows? Is that what reviews are really about?
