"While today's episode of CNET's Buzz Out Loud podcast was delayed for a "mandatory meeting," (Hmmm, we wonder what that might have been about) the wait was worth it, as hosts Molly Wood, John Merritt and Jason Howell were able to comment on Gamespot's firing of executive editor Jeff Gerstmann from a somewhat insider perspective.

As you might imagine, the issue is quite a big deal over at CNET. "You can't believe how seriously every editor in the house is taking this," Wood said. "This is the kind of thing that decides whether we want to work here or not. It's a big deal."

But at the same time, Wood was a bit peeved that the gaming community was acting based solely on rumors of impropriety on CNET's part. "You instantly jump to that conclusion that it's over," Wood said. "People are gone..."

The story is too old to be commented.

YES IT IS CNET,DO YOU HONESTLY THINK GAMESPOT WILL REGAIN THE RESPECT IT'S LOST FROM GAMERS?
NO,YOU HANDED OUT ONE TOO MANY BAD PLAYSTATION 3 AND WII GAME REVIEWS,THE TWILIGHT PRINCESS REVIEW IS WHEN IT GOT BAD,THE RATCHET&CLANK REVIEW IS WHEN IT GOT REALLY BAD,FIRING JEFF IS WHEN IT GOT EXTREMELY BAD,GAMERS REALIZING THAT PUBLISHERS ARE PAYING YOU OFF FOR GOOD REVIEWS THROUGH ADS IS WHEN IT WAS OVER.

LET'S SEE GAMESPOT HAND MGS4 A 7.5/10 AND WITNESS WHAT WILL HAPPEN,THE 3 OR 4 REMAINING PLAYSTATION FANS ON THE SITE WILL PACK THEIR BAGS AND DRIVE AWAY INTO THE SUNSET
