Alex Hinkley, the Ex-Examiner writer tells his side of the story. If you live under a rock, then you missed the uproar he caused with his article. Writing about how developers are overpaid has cost Alex his writing job. Examiner.com decided it was time to part ways with Alex. This was after developers contacted Examiner and expressed their distaste for the piece. Alex stands by his sources and believes in his facts. He agreed to be a part of the show today and give his side of things in detail. Addressing critics and standing by your work will get you far. It will also get you fired.
