A blogger for Gizmodo, a part of Gawker Media, has been banned from the Consumer Electronics Show, the biggest annual event in the tech industry, after he walked around the floor of the show turning off flat-screen monitors with a remote device.
"The Gizmodo staffer interfered with the exhibitor booth operations of numerous companies, including disrupting at least one press event," the C.E.S. said in a statement. "The Gizmodo staffer violated the terms of C.E.S. media credentials and caused harm to C.E.S. exhibitors. This Gizmodo staffer has been identified and will be barred from attending any future C.E.S. events. Additional sanctions against Gizmodo and Gawker are being reviewed."
