The Xbox Hoax

Harry Marks on the blogs that published a bullshit Xbox rumour:

Boo hoo. How awful that it took one person to show you your model for reporting news is a farce and that you might want to do some actual investigative journalism before publishing every rumor that crosses your inbox.

Surely Gizmodo and CNet have sources in Microsoft’s Xbox division. But the page views of rumour stories keep the ad model afloat, so this shit will never end.
