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.
