THE MORE YOU STIR IT THE THICKER IT GETS
2001-01-24 10:17:00 [Filed by Arcadian Del Sol]
Brace yourself for I am about to utter two words that will divide the readers of this site like Charlton Heston at the shores of the river Nile: Daily Radar.

Still with me? I admire your fortitude. At first glance, it appeared that Daily Radar was being roughed up Teamster-style by Nintendo. Peering through the dimly lit, smoke filled room, it became increasingly clear that Daily Radar was simply handing out pitchforks and torches to anyone willing to join the big peasant revolt against Super Mario (I'm selling my pitchfork on EBay later in the week). To "clarify" the situation (in Daily Radar Speak, that means "further muddy up an already murky pond"), Frank O'Conner, "Executive Producer" of said web page issued a statement.


Daily Radar has, until further notice, decided to suspend its coverage of Nintendo games and systems. We'll continue to cover big news stories and we're not censoring ourselves, but until an ongoing legal dispute with Nintendo is resolved, this is our safest, simplest option.

This disappoints all of us, readers and writers alike -- and frankly, we hope that the matter will be resolved quickly and judiciously so that we can get back to doing what we love -- playing and writing about cool new Nintendo games. The current situation has created a great deal more fuss than we'd have liked, but the fact remains, we're in something of a bind, and there's not much we at Daily Radar can do about it -- that's up to a bunch of lawyers.

There seems to be a misconception that we, Daily Radar, are doing this to spite Nintendo, ourselves or even our readers. That is simply not the case -- this is the clearest way we can think of to deal with the complex nature of the litigation while maintaining our editorial integrity. In truth, this whole situation, for us, is a pain in the posterior that we would like to end as soon as possible. And that is what we're working toward. Until then, please bear with us, and continue to enjoy the site.

Yours Sincerely,
Frank O'Connor
Executive Producer
Daily Radar


Translation: "Did I do thaaaaaat?" - Steve Urkel.
