I’ve been listening to and watching Leo Laporte on TV and the Web for years. He comes across as a truly nice guy. So, I was floored when he went nuclear on Michael Arrington. Swore at him. Threw him off TWiT and told Steve Gillmor to find another place to produce Gillmor Gang.
Shortly after, Michael Arrington wrote about the exchange in a post on TechCrunch. He apologized – and then added a short message from Leo Laporte apologizing for overreacting.
OK. So today’s contretemps is over. But …there must be a lot more history here to have triggered Leo’s angry outburst. Wow.
