Rawrcast.com does its best to only break news that we deem reliable. Not only that, we tell everyone that listens to our podcast that we are not a news source, so when do break something, it is because we have done our research, and we know what we are writing about is fact.
We broke the WoW TCG breakup on November 13, 2009. Now I can understand that there are people out there that won’t believe much of what we, or anyone else writes when it comes to WoW. We are not upset about any of that, we have thick skin. What is unprofessional is Sacco stating that we started a rumor and even wrote about it on wow.com.
We just want to state the facts. We knew about this 3 months ago and broke the story. Wow.com chose to believe the “everything is fine” line from Upper Deck without doing much digging on their own. We protect our “reliable sources” just like any other organization would. We now have been proven right, and wow.com gets to publish the story as if nothing happened 3 months ago? We just don’t feel like this is right. We would like an apology for saying that we started rumors Sacco.
Thanks to all of you, our readers and podcast listeners for sticking with us! Without all of you, none of this is worth anything. Remember to listen in live, Sundays at 1PM Central Time for our podcast.
**Sacco, the writer of both articles linked to above and editor of wow.com has responded with this from his twitter page:
Fansite competition is such a needless cutthroat business. All it does is cater to the immature and create hostility where it need not be.
I agree, and this isn’t about competition. I don’t get paid to edit this website. Nor do we have the money or the resources to compete with wow.com. This isn’t about competition. This is about you essentially calling us idiots and me sticking up for Rhebella, one of our writers. This isn’t personal, but what’s right is right.
