* Media wars (continued): Michael Arrington tells the rest of the tech press to screw themselves, arguing that everyone has biases (and that it’s okay so long as it’s disclosed). To me, this isn’t an issue of bias. It’s an issue of buying access. Arrington seems to agree, and is okay with it. Not the most traditional definition of pocketbook journalism, but perhaps the Silicon Valley version?
