Update on the TechCrunch hatchet post from early today

I’ve just updated my eariler post with news that Michael Arrington of TechCrunch has received a threatening letter from the lawyer of the target of Arrington’s misguided and, apparently, misinformed hatchet job this morning. I’m a fan of TechCrunch, and I’m not a fan of lawyers who send threatening letters to bloggers. But in this case, I think Mike was wrong and he should apologize. I also think that all the bloggers who will, like I do whenever I hear about lawyers and bloggers, feel the knee-jerk need to attack the lawyer and his client should take a deep breath and get the facts.

As for me, I’m going to a hockey game right now — and am retiring from this topic forever.

    lawyers say all kinds of things all the time to get the result they want – that doesn’t make them facts. tech crunch could be right, they could be wrong. that letter is not dispositive on the matter.
