And also by the way, I can guarantee that nobody here hammering about the quality of fact-checking actually reached out to any one of these websites with an email asking for a retraction or confirmation update. Sure, there are a couple comments linking back to this thread, but most of them are way late into the activity and almost all of them are fuck-you-I'm-so-smart-because-I-found-this-GAF-post comments, nobody's actually calling for any action..
Reality is, the guy didn't do his job properly and irregardless of today, he'll continue on as a journalist and continue on making blog posts about gaming news that may or may not be true. The direct attack on Jason is easy because he made himself a target, but also because this somewhat represents the integrity (or lack thereof) of a major gaming website.
NeoGAF is (mostly) just a bunch of guys and girls having a conversation. You can't possibly compare that to a paid journalist level.
