Wait, pass the buck and blame Doran?
The actual creator of Newsarama? Cause I was reading Newsarama when Mike started it as posts on Compuserve.
Yeah, that's going to work.
Actually, Doran wrote the offending bit, AFAIK. He labeled the list as "staff", but I believe they generally get credited with the writer's name if they're a one person list (and, often, they are). Doran seems to have gone for the rare and questionable "I want hits by stirring up controversy, but don't want it to track back to me" angle. Siegel isn't the EiC. He's one of the site editors, but Doran is the senior. The shit and piss flows down from him and it seems like Lucas is tired of being the one who fends off all the stuff on Twitter (especially in cases where he didn't cause it).
Don't get me wrong...plenty of it is his own doing. But I don't doubt him on this one, because it isn't like he's made a habit of "crying Doran" before.
