    To be honest that site has lost a lot of credibility since the whole Jeff Gerstmann "fiasco". I imagine this has played a big part in his decision to leave.

    I thought Navarro was greatat doing the podcast's. The news is hardly surprising though, apparently some of the long-timers are queuing up to leave!

    I used to be a subscriber to Gamespot, I liked the HD content they put up, but I ended my sub after Gerstmann left, it just stinks to me, and I've not seen any denials by CNET. Now Navarro leaving too goes some way to confirming my suspicions, I always enjoyed his stuff.

    It's an inherent problem with US media, the fact that advertisers and sponsors have so much influence (however subtle and implied it is) over what the media can and can't say - even down to the news. Don't know if anyone saw Studio 60, but it was a great insight into how these things worked.
