I was originally just going to pass this news on to Elysium and Certis, but, hey, we're all family here. If my uncle can FWD me jokes, then the least I can do is post articles that tangentially (you love it Luda) apply to gaming news.Slashdot just posted a link to this very good article at Online Journalism Review that discusses the payola and praise going on behind the scenes of your favorite gaming websites. I for one [dollar bills] could not ever be swayed [freebies] to write a favorable review [10/10, two thumbs up] based on free reviewer copies [more please]. Like I said, this is at Slashdot right now so the page may already be under the influence of the Slashdot Effect.
