The Wall Street Journal's Shoddy Journalism on TechCrunch: It's Not About the Personalities, It's About the Principle

Arianna Huffington | Posted 11.12.2011 | Media
Arianna Huffington

Now that the TechCrunch editorial dispute has been resolved, let me turn my attention to the Wall Street Journal's coverage of it. In the most egregious case of mislabeling this side of Zabar's no lobster "lobster salad," the Journal's front page, above-the-fold story on Saturday sought to paint the situation as a "culture clash" based on "clashing personalities." It was, in fact, nothing of the kind. The issue at hand wasn't about personalities. It was about principle; a very simple fundamental principle about conflicts of interest that every journalistic enterprise -- including the Wall Street Journal -- adheres to. But you wouldn't know that from the exceptionally misinformed, substance-lite, and anonymous-quote-riddled piece. There is one upside to this shoddy journalism: the Journal reporters got the story so wrong, at least we know they aren't hacking into our phones.
