So, I imagine that a lot of people on this site has heard about Gamespot catastrophically losing its credibility (as if it had any to begin with) after they abruptly fired Jeff Gerstmann, known for inciting the wrath of Nintendo fanboys for his review of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Well, the rumor is that the bigwigs at C-net did not enjoy his review of Kane and Lynch, which at the time was heavily advertising on the site. As such, they canned him. If true, this is a sad revelation into the priorities of corporate sites and the credibility of reviews. It is especially bad for journalistic integrity, what little was left.

It'll be interesting to see the true story, if it ever comes out, but for the time being I'll let everyone else speculate on the matter, while I sit hear writing my report that is due on Tuesday. The lack of comments make this issue seem as though it dos have a grain of salt, but then, what do I know. What I do know is that RF Generation receives its funding from our donors, and are a horribly independent operation. We love you guys, and we try to do what you want, except of course when we are horribly under siege by school, like many of us are now. I digress, but yeah, keep your ears open to developments in this story, it's fun to watch Gamespot go down in flames.
