PandoDaily Removes Michael Arrington and MG Siegler As Contributors
The PandoDaily tech blog has removed CrunchFund partners Michael Arrington and MG Siegler as contributors. PandoDaily has also removed Arrington from the board of directors. Arrington said “This wasn’t a complete surprise to me, the company notified me last week that they weren’t happy that I and MG Siegler (my partner at CrunchFund) were going to speak at TechCrunch Disrupt this coming May.”
The reason why Arrington is speaking at Disrupt is because of a contractual agreement and because Siegler and Arrington “still love TechCrunch.”
“A startup is a stressful thing and entrepreneurs need to make quick strategic decisions on how to move forward in an ever evolving environment. Even when I’m being thrown out, I support the entrepreneur. If Sarah feels that they’re better off without our involvement, I support her completely. Our friendship goes back years and years. It can, I hope, withstand this hiccup,” added Arrington.
