GameSpot reports: Gerstmann, GameSpot part ways

The past week marked the end of an era at GameSpot. After over a decade in a variety of editorial roles, Jeff Gerstmann's tenure as editorial director has ended.

GS is filled with K&L ads, Jeff is fired, His review was negative, his review gets edited, the video review gets deleted.

ALSO, if "details of Gerstmann's departure cannot be disclosed publicly", they why they were so open when Greg Kasavin left GS?
