Last time we checked, we thought TechCrunch, the wildly popular tech blog, wasn’t taking embargoes. Or they were, sometimes. In fact, their policy was pretty unclear, and could basically summed up as: it depends.
Exhibit A is a tweet last night from TechCrunch reporter Jason Kincaid:
Tech press, I invite you all to raise your collective middle finger toward eWeek for botching the Gmail embargo.
Google was set to announce a new feature to Gmail, and had what seems like most of the major players lined up with their embargo of the news.
It’s unclear right now if Boulton’s move was intentional, but this leads us back to our original question: does TechCrunch take embargoed news?
