Hopefully this guy starts his own site or finds work at one that will have some balls not to cower to demands of someone who obviously has no integrity.
PR companies CONTROL news outlets.
If one writer steps down, there's 600 more kids out there willing to take his place for a free visit to see GTA V in person in exchange for his integrity. Look at The Tester.
Until the companies that hire these writers have integrity and enforce standards, it'll never change.
