Lodging, SXSW and journalism ethics
This was posted by Business Insider’s Allyson Shontell, a senior reporter, earlier on Tuesday.
As Business Insider founder and editor Henry Blodget notes, the Twitter post was in jest.
“Alyson was poking fun at a writer for another publication who recently offered to trade a post for a massage,” said Blodget in an email to Talking Biz News. “We do not allow writers to accept gifts in exchange for posts.”
The other journalist is Sam Biddle of Gizmodo.
