TechCrunch has suspended–and then dismissed–a teenage intern who solicited a MacBook Air from a startup in exchange for coverage.
“We are all shaken here at TechCrunch,” he wrote. “This is someone who was our friend and who we trusted to be honest with our readers. Our hope is that the intern learns something from this experience and grows into the kind of person that will be more welcome in this community.”
I guess they don’t teach ethics in high school journalism classes anymore.
