....and accusations of wrongdoing were being made against a Stereophile writer, and rather than contacting Stereophile, the manufacturer gave the information to the competition, and the competition then published the accusations against the Stereophile writer, how would Stereophile be reacting?
Not that it matters, but I feel very strongly that PSAudio should have contacted the publication involved before turning over private emails to the competition.
Ivan303, I agree with much of what you are saying. And, of course, I have nothing against PSAudio, and would never ask them for any freebies :-)
There is plenty of innuendo floating around but until people name names, nothing will change.
What are the manufacturers afraid of?
They're afraid of being sued. If they had evidence to back up their claims they would win the lawsuit. So perhaps their "truth" won't stand up in court?
..or ezine or even a print publication is going to sue an audio manufacturer who claims he was offered a good review for some compensation.
First of all, other manufacturers have probably been offered the same thing and a single reviewer or ezine doesn't have the more resources than the manufacturer.
So I really don't think there is any excuse for manufacturers not to come forward and name names.
At the very least the manufacturer should tell the editor of whichever publication it is because editor's don't always know what is happening. Even Stereophile has fired writers for being ethically challenged. How long were those writers going under the radar as bad apples?
