Change is afoot at The Worlds Largest Technology Tabloid, and it’s making the natives restless. Now, full disclosure (a hilarious phrase when used in the context of TechCrunch), I despise TechCrunch. As much as I’m loath to see people put out of work, I would like nothing more than to see TechCrunch consigned to the dust-bin of history.
Here’s the funny thing though. In each of these pathetic whine-fests about how big bad corporate media just doesn’t understand the special snowflake that is TechCrunch we’re implicitly asked to accept one unreasonable argument. We’re asked to accept that — even though Mike Arrington is a demonstrably unethical jackass — the site that he founded is incapable of unethical behavior. I’m sorry kids, that shit won’t fly.
