Gamespot Editor Gerstmann Fired Under Advertiser Pressure

In a sad turn of events, GameSpot has fired editorial director Jeff Gerstmann due to advertising pressure following a negative review of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Gerstmann earned the ire of fanboys following a review of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, a positive review in which he stated the game's strong points, as well as pointing out some flaws and game the game an "excellent" 8.8 rating.

Fanboys, unable to think rationally due to holing up in their houses playing Nintendo games and RPGs with ridiculous names while mom plays bingo, cried foul, demonstrating through uncreative insults and ridiculous accusations that they had little-to-no grasp on reality and were unable to think objectively.

But that was fanboys. This is a (perhaps formerly) respective gaming news and reviews site. If the rumors are true, and they've fired Gerstmann for showing a little journalistic integrity, GameSpot is finito.
