Watch Ben Blast ReputationDefender On The Today Show
By consumeristcareyAugust 10, 2007
Ben interrupted his vacation to tell the Today Show about our experiences battling the revisionist status-mongers at ReputationDefender. We first encountered ReputationDefender when they sent us a longwinded entreaty to remove a legitimate post detailing concert pianist Ronnie Segev’s 215 harassing calls to Priceline.com. We refused to take down the post, but that didn’t stop them from trying to alter Segev’s Wikipedia entry. Now they have convinced the Today Show to run a puff piece hailing them as the answer to “angry bloggers.” Watch as Ben bites back.
