The Wrap v. Newser


“We are not free-riders and we would consider it libelous for you to make that claim outside correspondence intended to settle a minor difference of opinion.”
-Newser CEO Patrick Spain goes postal on The Wrap for complaining about lack of linkage in stories they ran in full, for free. Newser editor Caroline Miller responded-with a post with no link at all to The Wrap. Newser’s Michael Wolff was basically just snide, though at least he linked! Here’s the thing. Why is everyone just such a huge bitch? (And no, that’s not “libelous.”)
