Leo Laporte Disses Mike Arrington (TechCrunch)
Or did Mike Arrington diss Leo Laporte?
On the one hand I can see Arrington’s point of view about disclosure for product reviews. But was it the appropriate venue for him to publicly vent on Leo? Leo was obviously embarrassed and had a complete meltdown. I also know that Leo is under pressure with his legal problems with Twitter.
I think the affair makes them both look bad. This is a good example of when communication between bloggers can go terribly wrong and egos get in the way of good judgment.
I’ve been there myself on one or two occasions. How about you? Had any blog wars lately?
