Gamespot scandal

So, to my friends who have been following the scandal about the firing of the Gamespot reviewer following a poor review of a game…I highly suggest listening to this week’s Gamespot HotSpot podcast. They do a very good job of being open and talking about the issues. Long story short, everything they say is very feasible and believable, especially if you’ve had experience dealing with upper management that is very detached and poor at realizing the consequences of their decisions. Here’s the podcast:

I have to believe them given that I have seen this happen at my current job very recently, and this has basically been handled in the same poor way.
