It seems Michael Arrington is back to his old tricks. As I've mentioned before, I don't subscribe to TechCrunch, because Michael's opinion is blatantly tainted. Here's another example. Recently Michael wrote a review of Hubpages. In the comments, Jim Woolley points out that Hubpages has the same issues that caused Michael Arrington to say Feedpass Does Absolutely Nothing. Michael's response? "Ordinarily I’d engage with you on it but the combination of verbal attacks from you and Randy was just too much." In other words, Michael's allowed to initiate an attack with blatant lies like Feedpass Does Absolutely Nothing, but when Jim disagrees with Michael, Michael blacklists Jim's business and Jim's opinions.

I'd also like to point out that Michael has agreed that the previous criticism of him were fair, but has never apoligized publicly for his Feedpass comments and now he says they were just too much.

Well, FeedPass appears to be biting the dust because of it sleazy aim of monetizing other people's content.
And the aim of Google would be NOT monetizing other people's content?
