If he actually had the OK to run with it, the fault kinda falls with DC.

Or, maybe this beer is messing with my resoning...


He had the okay from an unnamed source he claims to be a DC Exec. That guy is the leak, presumably.

Wait, did a DC official okay it or not?

If the DC higher-ups didn't want their employees to find out from Rich but from themselves, maybe they should have told their employees before talking to Rich?

Just a thought...

From what I'm interpreting....this move to the west coast was a discussion that the higher ups were planning, had reached a decision and as they are laying the groundwork to break the news in swoops Rich with a scoop to undermine management.

Someone should get fired for leaking this.

From what I'm interpretting, Rich found out about this via a source, contacted DC to confirm, and an unnamed DC exec, possibly acting unofficially, confirmed. Rich was sitting on it, but the exec told him "now would be a good time to run it," I am guessing because the news had at that point been leaked to other sites and it was a matter of time before someone else did, and Rich might as well get the scoop.

That's my conjecture.

Regarding that WB Comics thing someone said...

West Coast
Westside Connection
And now....
WB Comics repping the West Coast.

Soon we'll have East/West beef comics between DC and Marvel.

Marz, Spurgeon and Heidi are all wrong on this one.

Firstly, Rich may be a gossip monger, but this was the definitiion of a news story. It's not gossip.

Secondly, Rich doesn't owe DC's staffers anything. If he's a journalist, his job is to tell the story. Sorry if it's inconvenient.

Thirdly, yes it is annoying for someone to take credit for breaking the story, but he did and his job is also to get publicity for his site.

This is just a case of sour grapes.
