“MG Siegler Can’t Be Trusted”

Earlier this evening, MG Siegler replied to Marco Arment on Twitter:

I used to love to plant one really weird bit of random information (sometimes even false) into stories to catch the rewrites.

For some strange reason, Betabeat decided to make that tweet into a full story:

The headline: Unreliable Narrators! TechCrunch Blogger Inserted ‘Random Information (Sometimes Even False)’ Into Posts

The sub-head: MG Siegler can’t be trusted.

Siegler comments:

I mean, that’s seriously a story. A full story. On a site that purports to report about technology. (And congratulations: your click will undoubtedly lead to other stories just like it!)

Ridiculous.
