“On Thursday of last week Molly Wood, senior editor of CNET complained about the â€œCold Warâ€ practice of vendors who hold traditionalpublications under NDAs while blog sites like Engadget are able to get the news out more quickly. Jason Calacanis, the head of Weblog and Engadget, fired off a heated response using words like â€œborderline slanderousâ€ and was clearly so upset that he is â€œstarting an investigationâ€ into the ethics atCNET.
In my reading of Molly’s piece I see no attack what so ever on bloggers in general or Engadget in particular. In fact, after I read it I would have been more likely to look for breaking news on Engadget or Gizmodo, because that was where Molly said the breaking news was. “
