Conflict Of Interest At Autoblog

Posted on 29 September 2011 by Adam Kaslikowski

You're Fired

Autoblog has fired writer Jeff Glucker in response to an allegation of conflict of interest that arose yesterday. Mr Glucker posted an article on the site concerning a contest being run by Nissan while he was simultaneously under contract with the third party company that was running the contest for Nissan. Clearly the case could be made (true or false) that Jeff had a financial interest in the popularity of the contest and used his position at Autoblog to increase that popularity.

Props to Autoblog for taking quick and decisive action on this issue, although we are personally sad to see Jeff go as we always enjoy his writing. We hope both Jeff and Autoblog learn something from this episode and both are able to put it behind them. And here’s hoping that Jeff is able to find employment quickly again.
