GameSpot denies Eidos pressured firing of Gerstmann

Joystiq just got off the phone with Sarah Cain, a CNET spokesperson who wanted to amend CNET's previous statement to Joystiq on the recent firing of executive editor Jeff Gerstmann. While reiterating that CNET does not discuss personal employee matters with the press, Cain said directly that "we do not terminate employees based on external pressure from advertisers." When asked specifically about whether any such pressure was even attempted on Eidos' part, Cain had no comment.

The story is too old to be commented.

When big companies say "No comment" and don't take quick action it could mean they are indeed guilty.

gotta be careful saying that though... Who knows if they indeed fired him for not giving a higher score. It isnt looking good for gamespot though and something suspicious happened there.

I never went to gamespot for anything anyway. So this doesnt effect me, however, I wonder with all the suspicious reviews as of late if this problem isnt more rampant.

Cain: we do not terminate employees based on external pressure from advertisers

Joystiq: Ok thank you for your time

Cain puts phone down turns round

Cain: was that OK mr Eidos rep

Eidos rep: yes you can keep your job for now
