TechCrunch found Michael Arrington, who was fired from the site he founded last September, is not pleased with what he perceives to be the decapitation of TechCrunch’s editorial team by Arianna Huffington. Arrington took to his blog yesterday to protest the recent firing of TechCrunch editor Erick Schonfeld, calling Huffington “a very touchy psychopath conducting a game of musical chairs to the death.”
More from Arrington:
Arianna Huffington seems to enjoy fucking with TechCrunch in her leisure time. She put all her weight behind Schonfeld when I left. But within a few weeks the rumors were that she was furious at him for the way the news broke about MG Siegler joining CrunchFund.
I doubt Erick even realized, but he was a marked man from that day on. Yes, something that petty can piss her off…
