Arrington takes issue with the TechCrunch hate

And he’s not too happy about it either:

The last two weeks has brough a fresh wave of TechCrunch hate. I’€™ve learned to avoid responding to this stuff in the past because it just draws more attention to it, but tonight a reporter from the Syndey Morning Herald named Asher Moses emailed me and said ‘€œFirst off, great site – i’€™m a regular reader of yours.’€? He then went on to say he’€™s working on a story about the ‘€œdisclosure scrubbed at techcrunch debacle.’€?

I like Techcrunch and I think they have some great sources. All I’ve ever asked is that a blogger actually look at what they’re writing about before they do – and that they are open about their conflicts of interest – and that they disclose if they are being paid to write something.

That’s it – nothing fancier than that.

Michael’s very successful – and that, in itself, pisses some people off.

    Yeah, it must be that. Frankly, I quit reading TechCrunch many months ago. I didn’t like the subject matter and I felt like too much time was spent hyping the blog.

    I also have caught many statements (like yours) that Arrington is a real dick. I can’t say for sure, but he does seem to be in his “interviews”. Plus, he’s quite opinionated himself.

    So what am I missing? Isn’t it true that TechCrunch does indeed SUCK the big baloney?
