Mike Arrington, founder of the hugely successful Techcrunch technology blog:

I have little hope for this industry until the last of the old guard have finally been put down. They do NOT control the news. They do NOT control opinion. They do NOT get to say who gets to write content and who doesn’t. And they do NOT get to rant about their ethics when they constantly fight against simple transparency.

A challenging rant on the somewhat shaky ethics of traditional media, as he sees it.
