TechCrunch vs. Valleywag


By Ben

There was some interesting back and forth this afternoon between TechCrunch and Valleywag, about why former Valleywag writer Jordan Golson was fired.

Michael Arrington of TechCrunch wrote a post detailing how Golson was fired because of a negative blog post he wrote on April 1 about his employer. Golson then told Arrington that his negative post had nothing to do with his firing, and asked him to correct the article (Arrington put an update at the bottom of the post).

Following that conversation, Valleywag’s Paul Boutin wrote a post about how Arrington flubbed the story but said he couldn’t ‘go back on it now.’
