This issue has been handled poorly by all involved, Gawker, Blizzard and Wow Insider. Your first post on the issue seems like the kind of thing it's important to check on before you add to the confusion. Does Wow Insider really not have a press contact at Blizzard whom they can call to verify facts?

Unfortunately it's hard to work with a company that doesn't return official requests for comments and communications.The staff producing the original report followed all proper journalistic procedures. In correcting this story, all appropriate steps have been taken as well.

Wow Insider aren't 'involved' they're a news source posting what information they can. Your post reads like you hold WoW Insider somehow responsible for The shoddy communication from Blizzard.Journalists aren't affiliated with the companies they write about you know. They're not employed PR. They go with the facts as they appear.

I guess because it's a "blog" WoW Insider has no responsibility at all for reporting news without fact checking then? If so, then you can't call yourself journalists. Isn't that the standard we hold newsmen and newspapers to?
