You better watch out, you better not cry, you better rein in your PR spammers I’m telling you why…
TechCrunch‘s Michael Arrington has launched a missive a la Chris Anderson, saying PR firms are out of control. Specifically, it’s the PR people for the tech industry that have raised his ire. Now, he’s mad as hell and … will be putting a lump of coal in your stocking.
“We’ve never broken an embargo at TechCrunch. Not once. Today that ends. From now our new policy is to break every embargo. We’ll happily agree to whatever you ask of us, and then we’ll just do whatever we feel like right after that. We may break an embargo by one minute or three days. We’ll choose at random.”
Arrington also warns that his blacklist is coming. Is this drastic, or has this been coming?
