It might seem like I'm picking on Techdirt, but I'm not, really. There's just a surplus of posts in my RSS reader, and I'm just now cleaning out my Techdirt folder. Nevertheless...

This post says "While we're generally suspicoius of vendor-funded surveys..." I wonder why. Are they equally suspicious of government-funded surveys, or NGO-sponsored surveys, or tech group-sponsored surveys? Most surveys are funded by some entitity with an agenda, whether it's obvious or not. It shows Techdirt's anti-business bias that they only mention vendors in this context.

Actually, we point out bias when we spot it, whether gov't or business.

To accuse us of somehow having an "anti-business bias" is so laughable I don't even know how to respond. We are simply pro-innovation, and I've yet to see how that could possibly be seen as anti-business.

If you can point out an actually example of how we're anti-business, when most of what we do is help businesses make better decisions to grow their markets, I'd be interested in seeing it. Otherwise, I'd ask you to retract your mistake.
